In addition to the many outstanding businesses represented as people’s choice winners, we also have a number of outstanding individuals. Thank you to Lori Cartwright of Wellmaster and Susan Nichols-Alvis from Nichols Insurance Agency. They recently stepped down from the Rifle Area Chamber Board of Directors. We thank them for their service to the business community of Rifle and Silt and wish them well moving forward.

With subtraction comes addition. We would like to welcome new board members Bryan Vashus with Life Leadership, Aron Diaz with Align Multimedia and Ramona Jaeger with Canyon Cleaners in Silt. We are looking forward to their contributions and ideas in the years to come.

June and July are typically slower months in our chamber world, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t busy behind the scenes gearing up for the rest of the year. Many exciting things are still coming your way in our 60th anniversary year.

Enjoy family and friends this summer during the lazy vacation days ahead. Stay safe, have fun!

Frank Ladd is the president and CEO of the Rifle Area Chamber of Commerce.
