June 10th Quarterly Meeting
   The old adage, “Time Flies” could easily be the mantra for the first quarter of 2014 - it truly has flown past. Once again it is time for the Chamber’s quarterly meeting. Scheduled for June 10th at 11:30 am at the CV Community Hall, the meeting will feature a, Chamber provided, Buffet Lunch of cold cuts, cheeses, crackers, green salad and potato salad along with coffee, tea, bottled water, and a variety of soft drinks. Dessert will be a surprise.

Following Lunch we will hold a brief business meeting and then our Guest Speaker, Ann Gawth, executive director of the La Pine Chamber of Commerce will present on what chamber promotions have proven most beneficial to the business community and how they might apply to our even more rural area. A question and answer session will fol- low.

In addition to Gawth’s presentation new Lake County Economic Development Specialist, Fred Smith, will host a brief Meet & Greet to let local business owners and folks considering starting a business know what type of assistance and services he offers.

The Partner’s in Care organization from Bend is also planning on attending and will be providing information on their services as well as on job opportunities they have for interested persons in our area.

We hope you mark your calendars, save the date and attend this informative meeting. It is a great opportunity for interactive networking and the exchange of ideas.

Hello friends and business owners. The Chamber is moving forward with projects for the community. We are sponsoring a hike on June 14th. Clean up day is now clean up week with a BBQ on June 21st. The 4th of July is shaping up nicely. Looking forward to seeing all of you at our next public meeting on June 10th at the community hall. Lunch will be provided by the Chamber.            Becky Tocol

Business News
    The New (eco friendly, all natural made from local materials) units at Summer Lake Hot Springs are nearing completion. Their modern interesting de- sign catches the eye as you pass by. It is always fun to see a project move from inception to reality.

   In case the news has missed you the Jack Rabbit Junction complex has been purchased by Outback Retirement Center. From what little information is available, the restaurant will stay much the same, although they have extended their hours. The changes being implemented are all geared toward consistency of product and service 

   The Grand Opening celebrating the completion of the expansion and total remodel of Christmas Valley Market was a huge success as is their new kitchen with a full grill and deep fryer. They are now featuring Cooper’s Express Chick- en, shrimp and pork chops and continue to have a case full of U-Bake Pizza, sandwiches and individual salads and more.

   The Willows has expanded again - Laura has added additional storage space and a good- sized work room. This will free up the current office area - making it a more useable space.

   Jake Lambert’s lumber yard and building supply is going great guns and is proving to be a real asset to the community.

   The Community Breeze newspaper is examining the possibility of adding an additional eight pages as a way to fulfill its mission of maintaining a good balance between advertising and content.

   Robbins equipment is getting closer to moving to its new location.

Forward = Progress
Opinion by Barbara Johnson, Secretary CV/NLCC
   The clocks have been set forward, farming is in full swing with first cutting just around the corner. The Chamber, like the area it represents, is moving forward.
   Forward, I have always liked that word; it indicates movement, improvement, progress - towards a goal.
   The Christmas Valley North Lake Chamber of Commerce has its own rhythm of seasons including Night of Lights, Spring Cleanup, July 4th activities; and fall, winter, spring Bingo.
   Mark your calendars for June 14th’s Outback Adventure Hike with the prospector. Folks will be gathering at the old lodge parking lot and then car pooling to the hikes starting point. The chamber is sponsoring the event and will be providing bottled water for participants. Local boy scouts will be assisting with the event. For complete information check in The Community Breeze - and on posters throughout the community. We hope that this is only the first of many such outings we will be sponsoring.
   We are also working on the Week-long Highway Cleanup Project with the bags set to be delivered to all willing participants on June 16th and full-bag drop-off and pick- up scheduled for the 21st. Remember that the clean- up week will culminate with a BBQ of Hot Dogs with all the fix-ens, Salads, and Beverages at RE Flowerree Memorial Park in the early afternoon of the 21st.
   Another exciting project - one we hope to have completed by the last week in June is the lining of the business district stretch of Christmas Valley Hwy with American Flags - approx. 100 of them. the Chamber is purchasing the flags, display poles, and attaching hardware as a gift to the community with the hope that in 2015 we will be flying them from Memorial Day through the 4th of July and on other patriotic holidays as weather permits.                                    (continued on page 3)

               Our Graduates!

   At our May business meeting, the Chamber Board decided to have one board member ‘assigned’ to each business as a point of contact and to build a Chamber-to-business relationship. This is the next step in our “We Start” campaign.
   Businesses will continue to be able to contact any board member with ideas, thoughts, or complaints but we also want the Chamber to have a one-on-one relationship with your business for an on-going exchange of ideas and to put a face to the Chamber board.
   We need to communicate one on one with business as we all work together to improve business not only in the northern end of Lake County, but all of Lake County.
   I discussed making inclusion a habit in the last newsletter but it is important and needs to be mentioned again and again. Here in the outback we all need to work together and include each other.
   Here in the outback, we need original thinking and sharing of ideas to help make the marketing dollars reach further. We need inclusion; get to know your competitors and other businesses within all of Lake County—Get in touch, stay in touch!!
