Seeds to Grow

And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free. And I won't forget the men who died, and gave that right to me.


Chamber in Pictures
Letting your friends know where you "are" is important, especially when promoting a shop local concept. These members were not being rude at a recent AM. They were marketing a fellow member's business.
Chamber Works !

The Chamber website has over 7873 job posting views per year. That's one of the many useful outreach tools to help find quality employees for our members.
Memories of the October Summit will last a long time. During his presentation, speaker Pete Blank generously rewarded books to audience members with the “right” answer. Leadership was the topic and everyone left the summit with more leadership tools in their tool box.

Tourism
Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort

Pristine and quiet, this beautiful high mountain lake is wonderful in summer for mountain biking, camping, fishing, and picnicking, and excellent hiking through unspoiled mountain wilderness. Only small trolling motors, canoes and rafts are allowed on the lake. In winter, dry powder makes the downhill skiing here some of the best in Oregon.
