Seeds to Grow

I'm always losing my car keys, my temper, my memory, and my patience…so losing weight should be a breeze.

Chamber in Pictures
Two short years ago, Element Six Technologies Corp, a division of De Beers (a diamond company) broke ground in Gresham. What has happened since? Join us (virtually) at the Business and Leaders Luncheon on January 19th at 11:30 am. Adam O’Grady, General Manager of Element Six Technologies Corp, is the guest speaker.
Not many wives would give their husbands a microphone like Marie has done here. But that might be one recipe for success in a family-owned business. Our chamber is full of family- owned businesses: Boccelli's Ristorante, Sunny Han's Wok & Grill, Anderson Martial Arts, Weston Buick GMC Kia, Leathers Fuels, Gresham Sanitary Service Inc., and many more.
A special Thank You to our retiring board members: 
Jim Hatheway with Transamerica Financial Advisors, Sue Piazza with Bucket List Travel Tours, and Josh Weston with Weston Buick GMC Kia.

Disney Cruise Line ships use the iconic first seven notes of the “When You Wish Upon a Star” song melody as their horn signals.
In Disneyland you can actually eat the plants in Tomorrow Land, as the landscape was designed to double as a farm

Bone broth supports the immune system.
Slow cooking or pressure cooking bones for long periods makes a broth that is full of minerals and collagen. Minerals are important for immune function and collagen supports the joints, skin, and gut.
What causes milky brown engine oil?

 Milky brown engine oil is an indication of coolant in the oil. This can be caused by a blown head gasket (other gasket), a failed transmission cooler or cracked casings. This condition is very serious and needs to be checked by a professional technician quickly.
Travel Oregon

As the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Though the expression refers to another famous city, it also rings true for Oregon’s Rome, where an unique geological landmark took centuries to form. The 100-foot-high Pillars of Rome once served as a marker for pioneers on the Oregon Trail, seen from many miles away. Today the humble riverside community of Rome is a popular gateway to the Owyhee Canyonlands and outdoor adventure.
