April showers bring May flowers. Hopefully the snow will be gone by then and we can enjoy those flowers. I’ve heard a few people are already seeing their crocuses so there is hope!

It is time to start thinking about cleaning up our yards and getting ready for warmer outdoor fun. Be sure to shop locally and patronize our Chamber members for all of your landscaping and gardening needs. Raking, clean-up and planting in the warm sunshine — bring it on!

We are very excited for this year’s annual dinner and awards banquet on Thursday, April 30, at 49 Franklin Street. In addition to honoring our award winners we have a special guest. Greg Maule, senior vice president for U.S. operations for Catalyst Paper will be speaking. If you are a Chamber member and would like to attend, please RSVP by Wednesday, April 15. If you have any questions, please contact Cheryl at the Chamber office.

Are you looking for ways to give back to your community? We are looking for fresh ideas and motivated, community-oriented people to join our board. We need you! Consider becoming a director and as the saying goes: “Be the change you wish to see.”

See you around town,
