September Chamber News

NEWS FROM THE ESTACADA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
As we say goodbye to summer and welcome a glorious autumn, there is a lot going on at The Estacada Chamber of Commerce.
‘SHOP LOCAL’ TRADE FAIR. Don’t miss the first, annual ‘SHOP LOCAL’ TRADE FAIR, on Saturday, September 24th from 2-5 pm on the lawn outside of Estacada City Hall. The Chamber will be serving free hotdogs and there will be live music by local favorites, The Mossy Rock Ramblers. Bring a lawn chair and spend the afternoon with us. Area businesses will be sampling their products and showing off their services. We have so many great businesses in the Estacada area, and many times folks just don’t know about them. This is the perfect opportunity to meet local businesses, up close and personal, and see what they have to offer.
NOMINATE A PERSON, BUSINESS OR ORGANIZATION On Friday, October 21st The Chamber will be hosting the first, annual Estacada Chamber Community Recognition Event at the Estacada Community Center. It is a time to formally say thank you to the many individuals and organizations that have contributed to our community. All you have to do is look around to see how far Estacada has come in the past few years. Nearly all of the results you see can be attributed to the work of community volunteers. Nominating is easy. Simply send an email to info@estacadachamber.org. We need your name, your contact information (phone number, email) the name of the person or organization you are nominating and a paragraph or two telling us why. Don’t have email? Just stop by The Chamber office and fill out a nomination form. And mark your calendar for the event which will feature live music and good food. Nominations are due to The Chamber by Monday, October 10th.
ELECTION YEAR: VOTE The next Estacada Chamber Leadership Luncheon is on Thursday, September 15th at noon at City Hall. We will be featuring candidates for public office (state rep, Estacada mayor, county commissioner) and speakers on ballot measures at this luncheon as well as the lunch scheduled in October. Estacada Chamber Leadership Luncheons are held the 3rd Thursday of every month (except August) and are free to chamber members and only $15 for non-members. Lunch is provided by member businesses for a small, additional fee. RSVP by calling the Chamber office at 503-630-3483 or emailing to info@estacadachamber.org
