September 23, 2020

COVID has taught us many things. Being adaptable to new conditions and circumstances is just one of the many things we have learned. We have seen businesses adapt remarkably by adding appointments, curbside pick up, PPE, and more. It seems like the most successful businesses are those who learn to adapt and move with the shifting economic tides. We are grateful to the chamber membership for being adaptable by allowing us to shift with the tides of COVID by having our luncheon at Heber City Park this past Tuesday. After six months without a chamber luncheon, there were a few cobwebs we had to dust off, but thanks to an amazing chamber advisory board and the staff at the chamber the event went very smoothly. It felt good to be among friends again!  

Our topic for the lunch was “Health In Business.” Randall Probst, from the Wasatch County Health Department, Si Hutt from Intermountain Heber Valley Hospital, and Aimee Armer, with the People’s Health Clinic, shared thoughts on what it takes to keep our valley healthy. We learned how hard the health department and medical service providers are working to first prevent and then prepare for any surges of COVID cases in Wasatch County. Their messages reassure those attending that our community is in good hands. 

We look forward to putting on our creative thinking hats as we make plans for future chamber lunches, and we hope we all can adapt together.

The Heber Valley Chamber would like to recognize the Homestead Resort as our August Business of the Month. The Chamber recently held their annual golf tournament at the Homestead Golf Club and immediately recognized some changes that had been made at the resort including their amazing customer service. The staff on the golf course were phenomenal. They went above and beyond to ensure a seamless event took place on their course.    

We interviewed Martin McAllister, the General Manager, who has been with the Homestead Resort since November of 2019. Martin brings with him 15 years of hospitality experience. The owners and Martin were drawn to this property because of the high potential.

The owner’s vision is ambitious and spectacular with a nod to the history, tradition, and timeless events that the Homestead is known and loved for. The owners want to update the property without losing its charm. To read more about The Homestead Resort and their plans for the future, click here.

The Heber Valley Chamber of Commerce would like to recognize Sherwin-Williams as our September Business of the Month. Jeremy Wright, and his team at their Heber City store have been here almost a year, and within that short time they have made their mark on the valley.

Recently, the Community Alliance for Main Street commissioned an art installation on the Heber Valley Chamber of Commerce building. As part of this initiative to add art in public spaces, donations were needed to help the project come to life. Sherwin-Williams as a local interior and exterior paint expert graciously donated paint to the project. This allowed the artist to put on an even uniform base color to start his work.
