Wow, how did January fly by so quickly; it seems like it was just Christmas and New Years the other day.
The Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce has had some tough decisions to make coming into this new year of 2020 and hopefully we can reorganize and focus on improving business here in Indian Valley.
We had our annual executive board meeting where we voted on our leadership positions for the coming year.
Bink Huddleston was voted in as President, with Suzette Demery Reed being voted in as Vice President, with Jeff Titcomb as Treasurer, Sharon Strecker and Scott Tanner as board members.
We’re excited to get started as a board and have difficult decisions to make to protect the finances of the chamber and to ensure that our events are well attended and quality, business promoting events to be proud of.
At our meeting in January we reviewed the list of events that was presented to the board and made the decision to cut the Annual Century Rides, and hopefully we can bring this back in 2021, as well as our Annual Crab Crack Dinner & Auction.
Some of the upcoming events that will be happening are the Easter Egg Hunt, April 11, with thanks to the Waystation for their egg boiling and egg coloring party that always makes it fun for everyone.
We always support the Shasta Cascade Wonderland Association in attending the Annual Tourism Summit being held in Durham this year for the first time ever. You can get more information on the Chamber’s website: indianvalleychamber.org or go to the SCWA website at: shastacascade.com and search the tourism summit for ticket price and purchase. A fun event for sure and very informative as well.
Our Annual Indian Valley-Wide Yard Sales on May 16 is a favorite for many all across what we like to call Upstate California, which is our eight-county region in the Shasta Cascade Wonderland Association territory. We always have great interest in our yard sales event and people come from all over to hunt for their treasures. A good way to get visitors to come and spend some time and money in Plumas County, specifically Indian Valley.
The July 4th celebrations in Taylorsville are something we look forward to every year and what a good time at the breakfast, the parade, and then to the Tavern for some excellent beverages along with chitchat with friends and neighbors. Plan to come and celebrate with us this year in Taylorsville for the traditional national holiday, take in the Silver Buckle Rodeo and just enjoy what we love most about small town America. You will be impressed.
Later in July we celebrate all things Greenville with our annual Gold Diggers Day celebration on July 18 with a parade, street vendors and Main Street dance that evening. What a fun time for everyone. The planning meetings start soon so contact Bev at the Waystation to offer your support or financial contribution towards eggs and dye kits.
As you can see we have lots of events coming and even more that are supported by the Chamber and a full listing will be on the website soon: indianvalleychamber.org this is a new web address for us so be sure to make that change.
Speaking of the website we are revamping the existing site to be more informative. I will post a special tab for these events and other community events that we support or have a part in.
If you are able to give some time to help us, it would be very much appreciated. We encourage you to become a member, either personal membership or as a business or group membership.
We only exist to serve the community and hope to improve and diversify business in Indian Valley but without your support it won’t happen.
Let’s make 2020 a great year and get ready to make 2021 even better!
