Wow!  We are off and running here at the Chamber office.  So much going on in the next few months!  People, organizations, and businesses in the community are welcome to add events to our community calendar at www.garberville.org.  Events can be shows, fundraisers, sales, or menu specials!  Please pass this information along!

Our recycling recepticles in Garberville are no longer being serviced by Community CornerStone.  Instead Robert Baker and his daughter are taking care of them and doing a great job.  They can be found servicing them almost every day.  We appreciate their contribution to the community.

Coming soon you will receive information about our Clean Communities Campaign which will include posters for business windows, media publications, and more to promote a clean, healthy enviroment for everyone.  You can do your part by ensuring that your business' outer spaces are litter free, cobweb free, and in good shape. 

Brian St Clair, our Merchant's Guild worker, continues to clean up the side walks and public areas.  Pressure washing has begun and will continue unitl our sidewalks are clean.  Thanks for all the support.  To donate to the Merchant's Guild please contact Cinnamon  at the Chamber office 923-2613 or at chamber@garberville.org.
