HELP FIND THESE!!!
Stolen from Lynn Lashbrook’s Pearl District offices are many very personal and sentimental baseball memorabilia. The thief might think these items have resale value, but they don’t. The stolen items, including original photos, baseballs, a Roger Maris baseball card, and many other sentimental items, are not financially valuable. They are, however, part of Lynn’s past that can’t be replaced. Lynn Lashbrook is offering a $1000 reword, no questions asked. If you get any calls regarding these items, offer to buy it immediately and Lynn will give you the reward money, when items are recovered.
First ever Breakin’ on Main, sponsored by the Gresham Chamber, was fun, competitive, and a crowd pleaser. Congratulations to the City of Gresham for another successful Arts Festival!
Bill Schwartz, Boring Brewing Co., might look like he is looking at the next hole at the Chamber Tournament (which was FABULOUS FUN!) but his team is really looking towards the Liepold Farm property where he is hosting the Boring Beer Fest at the end of August. Bill likes fun events!
Patricia Gutierrez of Gresham Burrito Shop is not sure the size of the scissors will cut through the excitement of opening her new Gresham location.  Thanks to all of the Ambassadors who help make the ribbon cuttings a successful event for our members.

Member Tips, Tools & Press Releases
Robin's Roaster

Season your bird with your favorite seasoning Preheat the grill to 225 degrees. Put your bird on the grill and cook until internal temperature reaches 155 degrees. This should take between 2.5 - 3.5 hours. (Tip: Place pads of butter under the skin to give explosions of flavor)
Business & Safety Tips

As a leader of your company, do you truly know your strength and weakness?
Things to consider about your home when preparing for retirement:

-Is your home suitable to age in?
-Is it handicapped accessible?
-How expensive is it to heat and cool?
-How old are your large appliances/wiring/plumbing?
-Are their unused areas in your home or property?
Unsecured Credit

A loan the terms of which are primarily based on a customer’s personal and business credit history, and cash flow. No collateral is pledged; therefore unsecured credit accounts may have lower credit limits and higher interest rates.
Ready - Set - Grill (safely)

For charcoal grills:
  • Use only charcoal starter fluid or opt for a charcoal chimney or electric starter
  • Never add charcoal starter fluid, or any flammable fluid, to the fire
  • Dispose of coals in a metal container after the coals have cooled completely.
Health Tips

Always mix insulin correctly. First, roll the pen between your palms 10 times then tip it up and down 10 times. Don’t shake the pen, as this can cause air bubbles that are painful if injected. The insulin should appear cloudy or milky after mixing. If you see any clumps or particles in the insulin, don’t use it.
Keeping Your Hair Shiny & Conditioned

When brushing your hair, start at the ends and work your way up. Never brush your hair when it is wet, instead brush hair out before shampooing and then only use a pick to detangle wet hair.
