CHAMBER CHATTER

Hi everyone. I just wanted to comment even though it will be old news, how wonderful Dr. Helm?s Book Launch was. Someone came into my office today and said it is nice to be reminded that we really do live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth once in awhile!

There is so much happening around town now, Theatre group is getting ready to show some of their stuff, summer is here at last, and everyone is out hiking, biking, walking, golfing and going on holidays. Grad is coming up, Grizfest, and more.

Speaking of Grizfest, the Chamber of Commerce is going to have a Dance this year on Friday night. It should be a good time. Please contact Joanne Kirby at Tags for more information.

As you all know the Big Bike is coming to Town. I am going to try and ride it this year, you can come sponsor me if you wish…… This will be a fun couple of hours and a great cause. I am so glad it is coming to Tumbler, great enjoyment for the community

The way we interpret life depends on our point of view!

Life through the eyes of children!

A mother was driving with her three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of her stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As she was reeling from shock, not knowing how to explain this to her children, she heard her five year old shout from the back seat, ?Mom!!, that lady isn?t wearing a seat belt!!?
