November General Meeting: Monday November 4th at the Ashpole. This will be another civic opportunity as we’ll get a tour of City Hall and take a behind the scenes look at how our city operates. We look forward to seeing you all there and keeping the momentum and enthusiasm going.

We need your help:
Chamber Board: November we’ll send out the ballots for electing the board. We are looking for a couple new people to give us one morning a month. The third Tuesday of every month we meet for an hour. Looking for someone to throw in their two cents, ideas and solutions. If you need a personal invitation consider this a personal invitation to YOU to be a part of the board. Interested? I knew you would be, please e-mail Mike at [email protected]
Volunteer Upper Rogue: We’re putting together a ‘Volunteer Upper Rogue’ group. We would like for someone to step up and spearhead this great opportunity for the community. We’d like to put a few people on a board that would oversee a large group of people that have an hour a month, week, day to donate. We’ll have an e-mail system much like this to communicate to those that have an hour a month to volunteer and what events/projects are going on that need volunteers. It will essentially be a bank of volunteers for the Upper Rogue. Interested? This has been an idea for a while and it’s now time to take it from concept to BEING REAL.
