January 2022
Dear Chamber Members,

Hello and Happy New Year!
I hope that you and your loved ones had a wonderful holiday season. We sure did here in Grafton! We’d like to take the time to thank all of our great sponsors, and each and every one of YOU who attended any of our Holiday Events. We had such an amazing time, and we hope you did too.

As we kick off 2022, I’d like to encourage everyone to attend our Annual State of the Community luncheon on January 26th at the Twelve 18. This is a wonderful event that gives great insight into the happenings around Grafton.

Another great opportunity for networking is always our ONCE luncheons. The next will be held on February 23, so please save the date and watch for details coming soon!

As always, I hope to see you out and about in Grafton, and look forward to a happy, healthy and prosperous new year!

Amanda Hansen
Chamber President
