Recognize our Chamber Volunteers 
 
The week of June 18 is Chamber Volunteer Week.  This week-long celebration is to honor our volunteers and to show them our appreciation for the countless hours they donate to the Chamber.  Over 2,900 hours just this past year!   
 
Many of the hours they donate specifically assist those of you in business, i.e. questions about insurance, real estate, business services, lodging, shopping, dining and other services are frequent inquiries the volunteers handle.  Your businesses are recommended far more often than you realize.
 
We encourage Chamber members to show their appreciation to our volunteers for the many referrals made to your business throughout the year.
 
Send in a note of thanks
(PO Box 9022, Woodland Park, CO 80866)
Drop off treats, flowers or baked goods for them to enjoy (all week long, June 18- 22)

This is a fantastic way to show our volunteers they are appreciated by all.  And their services they provide through our Chamber is recognized!
