    Oral Hull
    Oral Hull Foundation for the Blind is in need of volunteers for clean up from storm damage.

    Hi all: I am hoping that some of you would be available for our next Hull Park ice storm damage clean up on Tuesday the 18th and Wednesday the 19th from 10 am -2 pm or whatever fits your schedule. We will need the following help in these areas:
    4- people to rake the meadow by the trout pond and finish cleaning up the pile of limbs.
    2 -people to re-stack wood by the fire pit and chop some of it.
    1 -person to rake bark chips that have blown out of the swing set area and onto the grass.
    2- clean gutters on several buildings with fir boughs, etc.

    We have most tools but you could bring your own gloves, boots/sturdy shoes and rakes.

    Let me know who and which day(s) you are available so we can schedule lunch needs.
    If you would prefer a Saturday to do this, please let me know and I can make those arrangements. You can call Susie to confirm at 503-668-6195.

    Many thanks, as always!

    Save The Date for Thrive at 25!

    March 6th (9:15 to 11:30 a.m.)

    The Sandy Chamber’s Career & Education Committee is coordinating the Thrive at 25 event again this year.

    It’s a fun and exciting event that encourages career planning.

    It prepares students to make realistic choices for a successful future by offering a glimpse into the realities of an occupation, monthly salary and daily life of a 25 year old.

    On the day of the event, freshmen visit stations where they choose their housing,
    transportation, childcare, entertainment and much more.
    There are even some surprises along the way.

    We’ll need your help to make it a reality!
    Please send an email to dawn.loomis@mhcc.edu if you’re interested in volunteering.

    Message from Connie Knittle, Now @ M Reality

    Hello!
    I know this have may scared you….that I wasn’t going to be around!!!

    I bet you were thinking…How can she be the “City Girl Smarts with Country Girl Charm”….If I’m not in the Sandy, Boring and Mountain community!??

    My move to M is strictly due to the fact that…the company’s location in Portland & Lake Oswego….is where the technology folks at M Realty live and work!

    With today’s technology – I’ve had to make a huge adjustment.  Real Estate and sales of homes have really advanced and I see that what is needed and wanted is revolutionary exposure in the Media and also in the way we Market a home.   I wasn’t able to keep up with it all.  I think I did a good job at it, but honestly, I wasn’t doing enough!  And I was doing it all…myself.

    Now…I have a great team of folks that are REALLY good at what THEY DO…. THEY KNOW HOW TO MAKE A HOME LOOK EXTREMELY SHARP, DESIRABLE AND APPROACHABLE.
    So I decided to join that team.  Make them my best friend.  Isn’t that what you are supposed to do… get close to your enemies!??   ;o)

    Well… I am privileged to work in an industry that usually lets me hang out with friends…in their Home or business!   That’s really where my business is located…In the homes of friends and family and associates.  I like it there.

    So now – I work from a home office, I work from my car most often and I work in your homes.
    And the end result…is that I find or list your home to meet your desired goals.  To own your own home…or to sell at a good price so that you can move on.

    If your plan includes moving …I’m the girl to talk to.    I love what I do.

    I chose to work with M because of their bright Orange sign – because of their technology – and because of their forward thinking on how to put our best foot forward for our clients!  I always had the commitment for my clients -
    but the tools were too cumbersome to me sometimes…I spent many an evening – putting the tools I had in place – but felt sometimes, that it wasn’t always enough.

    The move to M didn’t change me… I’m still that hardworking Country girl that you’ve come to know.  I am here.  I’ll be here… just call or email me.  I’m not far away.  Usually I’m just down the street.

    I wouldn’t leave the community that built me.   No way!!  ;o)   I truly appreciate you!!!

    SACC At Work

    We hope you have a wonderful holiday! Our office will be closed Wednesday, December 25th.

    We would like to say Thank You, to all for a very full and productive year at the SACC.

    As we transition into 2014, here’s an update of what’s happening at the Chamber.

    First, thank you to all of you who’ve renewed your memberships. We want to make sure you are taking advantage of all the opportunities available to you. Please feel free to contact the office for all your member benefits.

    Some staffing changes: You’ll be seeing more of Andy Newman at the front desk. He’ll now be working full-time in the office. Karey Milne is still with us on a part-time basis—and will be providing more behind-the-scenes support going into 2014. Contact Andy if you’ve got any questions about your membership: Andy’s email is andy@sandyoregonchamber.org.

    Thanks to outgoing board members Lisa Foster, Jay McRostie, Rod Barker for your generous service this year. I am also finishing up my term of service. We welcome our new board members: Debbie Grimes, Dawn Loomis, Marlene DePaolo, and Debi Vann. The board will be electing a new President and Vice President at their January meeting. Until then, thanks to our interim President Cindy Bloomer and Interim VP Marlene DePaolo for filling in the gap.

    Thank you for your membership!

    Wishing you a peaceful and prosperous 2014.

    Madeleine Eno and the SACC board

    Upcoming W’y East Artisans Guild “Snow”

    Wy’East Artisians Guild will be having a collaborative show at the Chamber Office entitled “Snow” starting January 2nd. Several artist will be displaying their work including Rod Stroh (top), and Lea Topliff (bottom), each trying to capture the mood and feeling that is snow.  Whether it is the glare and bone chilling cold of a snow day, or the soft silence of a snowy night, snow has always evoked strong feelings for those who experience it. Capturing that has been, and remains a challenge for the artist.

    Come see the show starting January 2nd.  The Chamber office is open Tuesday through Saturday 9am-5pm.

    News 
    A couple of scams going around to alert you about…

    Scam #1
    One of our board members received a phone call, he asked for a call back number so the caller hung up – so he can’t tell you what the scam call was going to lead to.
    Number on my caller ID was: 882-013-1115 (of course that could be a ghost number and something different could show up with other calls – you can’t call the number back.)
    This is roughly how the call starts:
    “Hi I am Tom Williams from the Oregon Business Development Office and we have information that your business is flagged as moving – we would like to verify this and verify your new business information”
    He verified with the real Oregon Business Development office that this is a scam call.  So warn your staff and any of your business clients.

    Scam #2
    A Company called Corporate Records Service in Salem, Oregon is sending what appears to be Legal Notices to local businesses requiring payment of $125 for Annual Corporate Records and references the Annual Report required by the State of Oregon.
    This is asking for stockholder information of your Corporation which should not be given to anyone except the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office.
    This could lead to Identity Theft of some sort.
    Be aware and alert your staff not to process the Corporate Records Service documents. It is not a government agency.
