Now that the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerces membership committee is active once again, the chamber will be holding more ribbon-cutting ceremonies to welcome new businesses into the community.
The first ceremony took place in Sandpiper Square Saturday, Sept. 14, at Katies Beach Salon, which officially opened in this summer.
Eric Johnson, executive director for the chamber, called the new campaign a goodwill gesture to promote business in Cannon Beach.
As new businesses pop up, well be making sure to be down there and doing a ribbon cutting, he said, noting that chamber members which consist of businesses and individuals are the lifeblood of the chamber.
After a several-year period of dormancy, the membership committee is working to spread the word, and really just put the best foot forward in helping members to succeed with their businesses, Johnson continued.
The committee is currently revising the benefits package for the roughly 260 Chamber members, according to committee chairwoman Sheri Russell, branch manager at Columbia Bank in Cannon Beach.
Were functioning very well, and were making sure that were sustaining the community, she said.
The next scheduled ribbon cutting is slated to take place at The Bistro near the end of October. Ceremonies at Accent 1925 and Cakes By Jay are also in the offing.
