of Commerce meets
The Greater Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce met Thursday, June 10.
It was reported the Business After Hours event at the Library went well. Laurine Nightingale reported they had a steady stream of people come to their open house from 1:30 on.
The annual BLM river cleanup raft trip has been pushed back to August 14 this year due to the high water. 22-24 people can go on the trip, first come, first served, and must be at least 18 years old. Contact the BLM office to sign up for the trip.
The Chamber talked about developing welcome packets for new residents. Apparently some of this is already being done by others and maybe the Chamber could coordinate with them.
The Christmas events were on the agenda with the Chamber looking into purchasing more lights for the trees at the Centennial Garden. Those were well-received this past Christmas.
The city brochures were discussed and the hope is to finalize them at the next meeting and get them printed.
The Chamber approved donating $250 to the Summer Reading Program and also $150 toward new shrubbery at the Welcome to Cottonwood signs.
In conclusion Laurine Nightingale asked if anyone had an old-fashioned crank style ice cream maker. They’d like to be able to use one for an event this summer at the library.
The next Chamber meeting is set for Thursday, July 8 at 11:30 a.m. at the Duman Mini-Mall.
