Membership matters.
Good afternoon! I hope that you have enjoyed the start of this holiday season. As you start to begin shopping for gifts for your family and friends, I encourage you to buy local - both online and in-store. The Chamber's directory is a great place to start when looking for gifts and is a great resource when finding local businesses.
In partnership,
