Chamber in Pictures
Sadly, no chamber bell ringing this year. Lynn will miss being with chamber member friends like Barbara of Mt. Hood Hospice, Scott from Apex Solutions, Crismon of Reliv Food Science, and Amanda of AXIS Design Group Architecture & Engineering, Inc. But you can still help! Sponsoring one kettle for one day is $150. Shoshanna from The Salvation Army Gresham Corps can help you make that work.
Make gift card stocking stuffers unique this year. How about membership for a year to the Gresham Historical Museum? These wonderful board members and volunteers would appreciate it. This photo was taken December 21, 2018 at the Friday AM hosted by the museum, in the beautiful brick building in downtown Gresham. Be part of the upcoming gift card week. Watch for details.

Member Tips, Tools, & Press Releases
What is the most important service we perform on our vehicles?

Most important preventative maintenance service you can have performed on your vehicle for longevity is frequent oil changes. Clean oil and the proper grade and weight as recommended by the manufacturer of your vehicle is the best lubricant to have working inside your engine.  
Got that hard ring around the toilet bowl?

Soak a very soft pumice stone in water, then erase it with the pumice stone. Use light pressure so you don't scratch. Then, dry the bowl and wax it with car wax so the ring won't build up as quick.
Try Local
Follow the Rules But With Local Mission!

We all want to do our part to make this “virus” go away. I will wear my mask, wash my hands, be sure that our Dealership is cleaned hourly and everything wiped down immediately if necessary. I will stay a safe distance from all not shake hands, hug or give a pat on the back.

Scams are abundant right now. Don’t get fooled. Do NOT be fooled by anything that is coming in your email regarding Federal Government funding. See this SCAM sample BELOW:

If you do not update and complete the registration process, this can result in interference and/or delay with Federal Government Fυnding and/or Awards; as SAM registrations must be current, complete, active and compliant for Federal Government Awards, grants, and payments.

Travel Oregon
SCIO

A tour of Scio quickly reveals why this little burg is called the "Covered Bridge Capital of the West".

Five of the remaining historic, scenic structures (and one new one) span the creeks and rivers surrounding town on these quiet country back roads southeast of Salem. Explore Scio’s railroad history at the Scio Historical Depot Museum, and herd your flock to watch the nation’s oldest sheepdog trials at the annual Lamb & Wool Fair.
