Chamber in Pictures
Senator Monnes Anderson firmly believes in the health of our community as was evident at the recent Legislative Wrap up. She spoke about the health of not only the residents but also the health of our businesses. Her vote on the cap and trade language presented during the last session, while controversial to some, was protective of local low income families, small business owners, and retirees on fixed incomes.
Pete Blank, keynote speaker at the Summit, kept the audience engaged the entire morning. Pete’s business mission of Laughter, Learning, and Leading was accomplished. It was confirmed by the high energy in the room for the entire morning.   
When asked “Did you enjoy the Summit today?” the sold out crowd gave a resounding Thumbs Up !

Come fall and winter, the treasure trove might include snowshoeing around America’s deepest lake, fishing for trout and steelhead, mountain biking epic forest trails or witnessing a surreal festival of lights.
