On behalf of the Board and Staff of the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce, I’d like to extend our thanks to all who made our 18th Annual Business Showcase at the Community & Senior Center a great success. Over 1250 folks made their way through the exhibit floor to meet our members.
Our sponsors are critical to the event. The Record Courier has been a full and valued partner in this event since year one. Carson Valley Medical Center makes it possible for us to secure the space at the Community & Senior Center and we could not stage the Showcase without the full support of GE, Douglas County, East Fork Fire and the DC Sheriff’s Office. Brandi Brown and Tahoe Production House are moving us into what’s current in tech and marketing and that’s no small matter.
Thanks to Scott Doerr, Sheryl Christian, Kurt Ahart, Liz Baumgartner and all of the staff at the Community & Senior Center for their assistance. Chamber Ambassadors Gary Dove (he’s also the Chief Electrician), Ted Thran, Kathi Rittenhouse, Deb Posnien, Carrie Nicolaisen, Jon Fisk and Laura Carrion put in long hours doing everything from planning to set up to check in to the proverbial ‘other duties as assigned’. Our beverage honcho Byron Waite more than handled the heavy traffic with dexterity and efficiency and volunteers Larry Offenstein, Debbie Dove, Lisa Finks and Hayden Lane provided an incredible amount of great attitude and help. We thank all of them.
Thanks to our members who take the time and expense to be exhibitors. It ain’t easy, but every one of them did a great job in renewing their relationships with old friends and creating new ones as well.
Thanks to Chamber Manager Alicia Main and Administrative Assistant Gina Macabales, who somehow manage to pull together the million details of an event this size. And along with all the thanks, we congratulate everyone who won one of our raffle prizes and Linda Sawtelle who won the Grand Prize Drawing and will be enjoying a new Weber Grill from Ace Hardware.
Finally, we want to thank everyone who took the time to come out and visit with us at the event. We hope you enjoyed it, found out about some offerings from our members, and have it on your calendar for April 14, 2019.
