The holidays are here and we are rapidly headed for the start of the New Year, 2018! This is a busy time of year for all of us in both our personal and business worlds. It is also a time filled with great opportunities to spend time with family and friends, some that we may not get to see during other parts of the year. One of those opportunities, Thanksgiving, is now behind us and I hope it was a great day for everyone.

On Thursday, December 14th from 5 pm to 7 pm we will hold our Annual Holiday Business After Hours which is sponsored by Alliance Title. This is always a great event with a wonderful desert contest put on by the staff. This year we will also be celebrating the retirement of Mari Tusch. Please come out and enjoy a great event.

The Christmas Holiday is here and it is a great opportunity for us to consider spending our dollars with local businesses. The Pocatello-Chubbuck area has a wonderful variety of shopping available where you can satisfy your Christmas needs. While you are out shopping in our great community don’t forget to stop by and visit many of the wonderful restaurants that are available in this town. Whether you are in a rush or looking for a casual meal you can find an establishment in the Pocatello-Chubbuck area that will meet your needs.

The Chamber staff is looking forward to working with you all in the New Year. Please stay connected with the chamber and take part in what’s new. We appreciate all of our Chamber Members and look forward to working with you during the New Year. 2018 will be another great year!
