GV Chamber Update!

Don’t forget…

 · Friday morning marketing meeting, 9:00 at Wild Bill’s.
 · Sign up for Spring Fling Chamber Booth this Saturday (4/28) from 10:00-4,
 Downtown Crouch (our booth will be outside the Community Hall.
       · Come on down to Spring Fling and support your community; remember this is our (the Chamber’s) big fund raiser for scholarships for the 2 deserving High School Seniors.
       · We will once again have a jail (I don’t know what happened to the one we had years ago). Anyway, you can have someone arrested for $5.00; they can bail themselves out for another $5.00 or sit in Chamber jail for 20 minutes. Ben Roeber will be our guest “Sheriff” for an hour, so come on down and watch the fun and support the local members and shops!

The handmade flags (made by our local quilters) are beautiful and some are almost ready to be purchased, after the grommets are attached to hold them in place. Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing one for the front of your business (just like the holiday flags). They will be available to Chamber members only. (We will figure out a price on Friday at the Marketing meeting; it will probably be around $20.00 each.)

If anyone would like to have a booth at the Exergy tour, we have been given permission to set up our own since they will be leaving from here and going to Idaho City. The booth place is still being determined, but will be outside. The spaces will be free to Chamber members, non-chamber members will be charged a minimum fee of $25.

~ A message from one of our members, Deb Drake, RN & President of the GVFD Auxiliary…

I am helping the organizers with the North Fork Championship Kayak Race on June 8 & 9. On Saturday, June 9 from 8 – 4, there will be a Whitewater Festival in the park. There will be some sporting vendors from Boise, food and arts/crafts. We would like to offer any local vendors a complimentary booth this year.

If you are interested, please let me know. Deb Drake
