This week has been a GREAT week for the Chamber. It was the last week of the month and that meant a lot of tasks needed to be completed. Janelle finalized the music in the park lineup. We got some great input from Mike and Denise from the City and sent out our contracts to the bands. Hopefully by Tuesday morning we will have a final line up ready for release.
Wednesday, I attended a Small Business Board meeting in Everett that helps bring attention and focus to the Small Businesses in our county. Any input you have for me to take back to the board would be greatly appreciated. This week's meeting was a discussion about what kind of help and resources we could provide to businesses as a Board.
Wednesday was also Ideal Lifestyle Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting! Janelle and I were so excited to be there and help celebrate this great success for Katie and Linda. We are excited to watch them grow and help our community live their ideal lifestyle.
Thursday was a day of catching up and getting applications and payments in order to submit for our Music in the Park concert series. The Beer Garden is growing and we need to hear from you what kind of drinks you want to see in there this summer. After the great feedback from the ChiliBowl in January I think we might need to bring back the Jalapeno Margarita!
Friday, we had a great Coffee and Connections event discussing Facebook and a few tips about how to improve your page and visibility. I would love to host more events with local subject matter experts! What kind of class can you lead that would help our members grow their business and community engagement?
We also started our interviews for the new Community Engagement Specialist. Excited to get this process going and the new person in the office later this month. As soon as we finish our interviews we will announce our new person on Tuesday after our Board meeting.
Hope everyone has a great weekend and goes out and enjoys the sun. Did you know that Governor Inslee declared this Saturday Washington Beer Day!?!?!
