April 8, 2021 Lunch-IN
Covington COVID Update
Join us for our April “Lunch-IN” when MultiCare will give us an update on COVID in the Covington community. They’ll share information about COVID vaccines, the latest protocols for keeping your business safe for customers and clients, and other health-related information. We’ll leave time for Q&A.

Speaker: Brian Cain, Asst Administrator for Covington and Auburn Medical Centers.

Brian joined MultiCare in 2016 and began his current role just over a year ago. His 17 years of healthcare experience includes management, operations and program development. Brian was instrumental in helping to organize the COVID vaccination clinics at MultiCare’s South King County locations.

This is a FREE education opportunity from the Covington Chamber of Commerce.

Good Work Fund - March 2021
The last year has been a tough one, and we wanted to say "thanks" and "we appreciate you" to a handful of local businesses. We used the Good Work Fund and swag and treats from the City of Covington, Just for Them Gift Baskets and Red Canoe Credit Union to put together goodie bags. Last week, we delivered the bags to say thanks for hanging in there. We value ALL of our businesses though, so if we missed you this round, we'll be touching base with you in the months to come!

We also want to thank our Good Work Fund sponsors for making this possible:
