North Fork Chamber(s) Newsletter
Focusing on North Fork Valley Events
February 8, 2023
Hello Chamber Members and Newsletter Recipients:

1. Please enjoy the 2/8/2023 Edition of the North Fork Valley Events.  

2. Chamber Business: The Hotchkiss Chamber Special Meeting for February16th HAS BEEN CANCELLED.  Instead, Members will receive a new set of re-written Bylaws to be voted on by the Membership at a future Membership Meeting this summer.  The Board decided there were too many changes needed and additional time should be provided to the Members to review.

Leigh Ann Hoyt has been appointed a Board Director by the Chamber Board at the 1/31/2023 Regular Meeting.  We continue to look for additional Board Directors, especially from Crawford and Paonia.

3. Event of the Week: The Abraham Connection's Hygiene Drive is the Chamber's Highlighted Event of the Week!

4. Daily Event Summary: See the Daily Summary of the Upcoming Events on the next block.  This is a quick reference of upcoming events to combat FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out).

Please email HotchkissChamber@gmail for event updates and new businesses in the North Fork Valley area.  Crawford , Hotchkiss, and Paonia businesses, we want to hear from you!
