I would like to make special mention of another great service that we offer to chamber members. We offer a weekly Member2Member email program in which chamber members can directly communicate via email with other chamber members. These very popular Member2Member emails can be shared with anyone. Often times the information is a banking service offer, a new restaurant menu or announcement of a special event. So here is a sample of this week’s offerings.
And as always there are so many options for those that may want to shop, dine, rest, stroll, bike, sing, dance, visit and explore. For a complete list of chamber members go to our business directory
