Have you ever wondered why someone would want to wear a Royal Blue fleece vest 12 months of the year?!?

At the Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce events, these folks are the ‘Royal’ members of the Ambassador team.

The Ambassadors are a dedicated group of very active volunteers who, while representing their business, act as a liaison between the Chamber and its members.

They are here to answer questions you may have and to assist you in making connections within your Chamber community. Questions or concerns? Look for a Royal Blue vest and make a connection.

While you’re at it, give them a big thanks for caring to share their passion for the Best Darn Chamber in the Pacific Northwest! 😊

Flu Shot Tips

A flu vaccine during pregnancy is safe for you and your baby and provides protection for your child for the first few months after birth. Infants younger than 6 months old cannot receive the flu vaccine themselves, so pregnant women should receive the inactivated flu vaccine.
Tourism

Situated on the confluence of four rivers just 30 miles from Portland, the town of St. Helens offers a sublime outdoors getaway. Hike, bike or horseback ride on Sauvie Island; explore sites recorded in Lewis and Clark’s journals; relax in the charming shops, cafés and galleries of the riverfront district, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Wrap up the day in one of the town’s Victorian bed-and-breakfasts, two of which overlook the Columbia River. To learn more , Click Here.
