DIRECTOR'S LETTER

The month of August is an exciting time for members of the Heber Valley Chamber of Commerce. Just two years ago, we created a committee to help assess the value of sponsoring an annual golf tournament.  Up until that point, very few people attended our golf outings, and our purpose for playing was never clear.  The committee helped set a vision for making the golf tournament the most fun gathering in town.  We had 70 golfers register for that tournament and felt like it was a great success.  Last year, we had 100 golfers sign up, and we raised $7,000 to invest into improved signage throughout the valley (which is in the process of moving forward).  This year, we are pleased to announce that we have 132 golfers, and our goal is to raise $10,000 to help beauty the main streets in Heber and Midway City.  We hope you enjoy next week’s tournament.

Best Regards,

BUSINESS OF THE MONTH
IMG_3612If you have ever been to the Dairy Keen, and most of Utah has, you can tell by the crowd that it’s one of the most popular burger, fries and shakes destinations in Heber Valley. What it takes to serve that many people is nothing short of staggering. In a single day they can go through 20 gallons, yes that’s gallons, of fry sauce, 5 gallons of their homemade ranch, over a weekend they can go through 325 gallons of soft serve ice cream, and through the course of a year serve nearly 2 million people. Read more...
