The Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce is gearing up quickly for what it plans will be the best Surface Creek Valley business holiday season ever, and new year.
Following the largest AppleFest to date, acting chairman of the chamber Bill Miller says he intends to keep the momentum rapidly moving in a most exciting, positive and fun-filled direction.
The chamber is currently recruiting Surface Creek business owners to fill expanded 1-, 2-, and 3-year director positions. The chamber office on Main Street is now open Monday through Friday and is staffed by two new energetic administrators: Tina Soffer and Mari-Emlie Sweigart. They are busy organizing the upcoming "Cowboy Christmas" Parade of Lights on Dec. 5.
The ice fishing contest on the Grand Mesa will be Feb. 6.
Everyone is encouraged to check out the chamber website facelift. Everyone is also invited to stop by the office to pick up the new visitor guide, submit board of director applications or just chat about your ideas for future growth and business support.
The public and business community are also invited to the board of directors meeting on Dec. 2, at 8 a.m. at the Civic Center. Meet the board candidates. New chamber officers will be elected at the January meeting.
