Welcome Mayme! Come meet the new Chamber Office Manager, Mayme Cawvey. We are thrilled to have her join our staff. While she has just started and not be able to answer your questions immediately that shouldn’t stop you from stopping by or sending her you’re a warm welcome.
Art festival is next week, July 20 and 21st. Better get there early so there is something left to buy before Mayor Bemis and his son shop at all the vendor booths. A few more volunteers are still needed. Contact the chamber and we will get you connected. 2 hour shifts are still available.
Thanks First Student for transporting some of Gresham’s school children safely to school and back. First Student and Reynolds School district are looking for part time and full time drivers. Check out the chamber newsletter and website or go directly to the member site for job opportunities.

  Get a Little Sunlight: Humans are designed to have regular sun exposure. As long as you avoid sunburn, sun exposure can improve your health—helping your body to produce Vitamin D, improving sleep, and even reducing your risk of many common cancers. Moderation is the key, usually no more than 20-30 minutes each day.


Know your "buzz" words when it comes to purchasing products. "Organic" and "local" are great when it comes to food. With essential oils, it's important to look for "indigenous" sourcing.



Surgery may help improve more than just your vision. This surgery is not as scary or risky as you might initially think. But it is always best to have all the information to make a great decision for your eyesight.

TOP THINGS TO DO IN OREGON THIS SUMMER

A hike down to the water reveals new wonders. The water is so blue, so deep, it’s no surprise it’s the deepest lake in America, and one of the deepest on earth. That’s why it’s one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon.
Surrounded by cliffs almost 2,000 feet high and boasting a picturesque island a violent volcanic past, Crater Lake is also home to hikes in old-growth forest and cross-country ski trips in the winter months. Many of the roads and facilities close during the winter, but the park is open and accessible all year long.
Crater Lake is located in  Southern Oregon , which is also home to the world-renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the stunning Rogue River, the Oregon Caves and vineyards, chocolatiers and cheesemakers galore.
