Words from the Chamber

A few days ago I had the pleasure of participating in a ribbon cutting ceremony at North Creek Ridge B&B as a forerunner to their beginning operations on Oct. 15. The property is a six-bedroom lodging facility with other facilities available for rental for parties and other special occasions. See a report elsewhere in this paper for more information or find them on Facebook or via their website.

The B&B is also a relatively new chamber member, so I decided to use this column to highlight and thank chamber members that have joined within the past year. Their commitment to the community’s business environment during these difficult times deserves special mention. Some of these are new organizations while others are old timers that stepped up to the plate to participate.
