Small Business Saturday - November 24
Scavenger Hunt - November 24, 2018 
9 am - 4 pm

Join us for fun and shopping in downtown Berthoud. You have a chance to win cash prizes and other gift items from participating businesses, while holiday shopping. This also gives you an opportunity to visit new shops. Begin and end the day at the Berthoud Community Library District. (Or, if you are coming in from the West side of town, you can begin at MainStreet Car Care & Quick Lube.)

Pick up your player card at the library (or MainStreet Car Care) and visit all the participating businesses, collecting codes from a mug that has Northern Colorado Credit Union on it (hidden in plain sight), for one point each. For every receipt (from one of the participating businesses) that you show at the library, you will get another point for a better chance to win. Businesses will also have specials for the day, so be ready to shop. When you return to the library to drop off your playing card, you can get your purchased gifts wrapped for FREE.

Weeks Wellness Chiropractic
September 13, 2018
Help us in congratulating  Weeks Wellness Chiropractic  on their ribbon cutting. I must say that this ribbon cutting was one of the most interactive and fun ribbon cuttings we've been to. We were able to try out lots of their "Spinal Hygiene" -- brushing and flossing of the spine techniques. Dr. Brian Weeks and Belle Kuhn, L.Ac. took great time and care to help us understand their approach to healing. They have even coined the term "Chiropuncture."It was interesting to find out that Dr. Weeks was destined to be a doctor. He's a fifth-generation doctor! Although, he's the first chiropractor. All of the rest were MD's. But, his brother and sister followed in his footsteps and became Chiropractors as well. (You can see the pictures below.) They came from Cleveland, Ohio.
Once an adjustment has been made to the spine, they follow it up with acupuncture, as well as other body work before or after. Dr. Brian works on the spinal nerve route and Bella works on the organ route to give you comprehensive care. They have the ability to take x-rays right in their office. If you are suffering, we recommend you give them a call at (303) 776-6596 for a consultation or stop in and see them at 1445 Nelson Road #104 in Longmont. Check out their website .

Featured Ambassadors
Larry Leach - MainStreet Car Care & Quick Lube
Congratulations to Larry Leach who was voted on by his Ambassador peers to be Ambassador of the month for October. Larry took on the task of getting the braces fixed on our stage before Oktoberfest. He also had to "fix" the pretzel stand before our contest. He doesn't wait to be asked to do something for the chamber and our events, he knows what needs to be done and jumps right in and makes it happen. He also stores chamber event items at MainStreet Car Care & Quick Lube. So when we need them for events, he hauls them all to the event and then back to his shop. And, he does all of this with a smile. Thank you, Larry, for all of your support. These events "don't just happen...people like YOU make them happen." MainStreet Car Care & Quick Lube
