Great Falls Regional Chamber of Commerce corner

BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – As my first year as director of the chamber, I would like to thank all of our members, sponsors, and volunteers for your contributions and your support. Looking forward to a successful 2018!

Thank you to Cota & Cota and Saxtons River Inn for hosting our holiday mixer in December. The Gift of Warmth 2018 recipient at the holiday mixer was Richard Thackston of R.H. Thackston and Company in Bellows Falls, and he chose to “pay it forward” to the Greater Falls Warming Shelter.

There will be no mixer in January. The mixer at United Church of Bellows Falls was postponed and rescheduled.

Due to the second Wednesday being on Valentine’s Day we are having February’s mixer on the first Wednesday of the month The February mixer will be on Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2018 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and is hosted by Westminster Fit Body Boot Camp at 5983 US Route 5 in Westminster. What a great way to kick off the new year and get a jumpstart on those New Year’s Resolutions! We invite you to join us for an evening of high energy and fun exercise, networking, light snacks, and beverages.

If you plan on joining Lisa and her staff in a class, please bring a clean pair of sneakers, a small sweat towel, and water. Don’t forget to hydrate and fuel up before you work out.
