President Rick Bastyr


Hello and happy November.
The elections are finally over. We have a couple new faces on our city council, now to see what kind of changes will take effect in the coming months. Hopefully the phrase “Business as usual” will not be spoken anymore. The council needs to focus on its core responsibilities. Only time will tell.

Our December meeting this year will also be our Christmas party as well. If you would like to donate a gift to be given away please let one of your board members know or feel free to bring it that night. We will be having a special dinner  as well. If you have any ideas feel free to notify any of us. We will be discussing the party at our next board meeting.

We held our first Home Show committee meeting this past month. A lot of ideas were thrown around and a few decisions were made. We will discuss these items at the next general meeting on Wednesday Nov 12th. Be sure to attend so you know what’s happening and bring your ideas as well.

Our guest speaker this month will be Riley Frei. Businesses in the community are needed as the Bullhead Elementary School District #15 and the Colorado River Union High School District would like to take education outside of the box.  School Superintendent Riley Frei will be sharing how you as a business owner get involved in our youth’s education.  Make sure to attend as he some important information and would like to talk to everyone in our association.

So clear your schedule for Wednesday Nov 12, 6pm. Make sure to RSVP online so you can have a chance at a free dinner next month. And bring a friend or co-worker, maybe have them sign up for a membership.
