Spanish Fork-Salem Chamber of Commerce gives back to its communities in many ways
The Spanish Fork-Salem Area Chamber of Commerce has been more busy than usual recently. The Easter Egg Hunt put on by both cities was a huge success, thanks to the many businesses that willingly donated so much as well as the many volunteer hours put in by businesses, youth and chamber members.
On May 21, the chamber and Rotary Club will host their annual Scholarship Pro-Am Celebrity Golf Tournament at Spanish Oaks Golf Course. The proceeds help advance academic and career training for local high school students.
And finally, we will be introducing the PLAY UNPLUGGED program to all of the Spanish Fork and Salem elementary schools this month at an assembly encouraging the kids to unplug themselves from technology this summer and engage in the 101 activities the local businesses are sponsoring. Please support those businesses that give so much to make this community what it is.
On April 4, the chamber presented a $250 scholarship check to the outgoing Miss Spanish Fork at the Miss Spanish Fork pageant as she said her goodbyes and crowned the new royalty. We have appreciated Megan Johnson’s willingness to give back to our city throughout the past year.
Our chamber board meets regularly, volunteers countless hours and meets with businesses every month. But what I also love seeing are the many faces serving and sharing their expertise that are not on the board - chamber members that see an opportunity to give back to the community!
People like Susan Taylor (Susan’s Hair Designs), Brenda Liddiard (Circle V Meat) and Cary Hanks (Cary’s Design Floral) were such a great help with the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Brad Tanner (Triple T Heating & Cooling) continues to share his expertise on our financial committee.
Every month at our Noon Networking Luncheons, we have awesome women like Nina Isaacson (Healing Points Acupuncture) and Traci Worthington (Costco) helping set up, take money and arrange the catering for these events. I could go on and on. Please know you are appreciated! If YOU want to see where there might be opportunities to serve, don’t hesitate to reach out.
The Rotary Club of Spanish Fork and the Spanish Fork-Salem Area Chamber of Commerce sponsor an annual Celebrity Pro-Am Golf Tournament to help raise funds for scholarships for local high school students. Last year, we awarded over $20,000 in scholarships.
We invite you to participate in our 2015 tournament. There are several levels of sponsorship outlined in our brochure. Contact the Rotary or chamber to obtain a copy. With your help, we hope to increase our ability to give back to our community.
The tournament will take place on Thursday, May 21, at the Spanish Oaks Golf Course near the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. In order to for us to make plans for this event, we would like an RSVP by May 12. Please send the filled out brochure to P.O. Box 491, Spanish Fork, UT 84660.
