Dear East Mountain Chamber Members and Friends,
As the year winds down, the trees change from green to gold, and the air has a chill, reminding us that winter and 2018 are just around the corner.
To recap what 2017 has brought so far, our Membership has nearly doubled and we enjoyed one of the most successful events the East Mountain Chamber has ever presented: A Taste of the East Mountains, hosted by Legacy Church Edgewood. With nearly 900 people in attendance, it was truly a day of fun and feasting in the East Mountains during a beautiful time of year. Music, vendors, entertainment, and of course, samplings of some fabulous food made for a great time! We wish to thank all of our vendors, hosts, helpers, entertainers and, of course, restaurants who shared samples of their favorite offerings at no charge.
Now that we're moving into November, it is time for some new blood on the Board of Directors for our Chamber. If you have any interest in joining our Board, or have any nominations you wish to make, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org asap so that we can work on ballots and get your votes tallied. Offices will then be assigned during the November Board Meeting.
However, our Treasurer, Bob Jones, has indicated he will be stepping down and will not be on the 2018 Board of Directors. We so appreciate his diligence and hard work for the time that he has served.
IMPORTANT: Please remember, there will be no monthly Luncheon Meeting this month! Instead, we will be having an Evening Mixer on Thursday, November 9th, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., hosted by Magnum Steel Buildings, located at 2515 Highway 333, Moriarty, NM 87035. The phone number there is: 505-832-9525. We look forward to an evening of fun, food and networking in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
On another note, Small Business Saturday is coming up on 11/25, and we would like to help promote it. If your business plans to be open and participate that day, please let us know by end of business this Friday, November 3rd, so that we can share the info in our ad in the Mountain View Telegraph that will come out on November 16th. Again, just shoot an email to Gail at email@example.com, along with any special offers you may be planning for that day.
As always, we appreciate our communities, and our kinship with those who live, work and play in the East Mountain Region. We are proud to be at your service.
