2022 Chamber Directory and Community Guide


For 2022 we are changing things up a little bit... By creating two publications.

The first publication will be a Community Guide, which will be undated and generic. It will contain information on the area, events, neighborhoods and other useful community information. We will be able to use this same publication for multiple years.

The second publication will be the Business Directory containing all of our members and services in it. This publication will be updated yearly.

Make sure that your business is represented!
