Welcoming a New Year

Happy New Year! A new year always brings many changes, new opportunities and thoughts of what we would like to accomplish in the year ahead. It also brings a chance to begin again with a renewed spirit and commitment to our businesses and ourselves. Here at the Chamber of Commerce, that means a new commitment to supporting businesses in the area, being an advocate for businesses to the city and promoting the city of Montrose as a premier shopping destination to surrounding cites. It also means thanking our outgoing board of directors and welcoming a new board of directors. We will also be giving out our community recognition awards to outstanding businesses and individuals that have made an impact on our city. Please come support all of these outstanding individuals, business and local organizations.
