Hello Chamber Members, 

Welcome to 2022 – what a gift the sunset was last night on Camano.  Wow – it was breathtaking.  

Thank you to all of you who have already renewed your Chamber Membership for 2022 – and congratulations to American Casket and Cremation Alliance who won the 3 Glass Ball package for paying by Jan. 1st (valued at $300!). We have 127 members as of today – and I’m sure there are some checks in the mail but our goal is to get to where we were at the end of the year which was a record breaking 153 members.  Thank you to each and every one of you for supporting the Camano Island Chamber of Commerce.  Membership certificates, a schedule of meetings for Jan-May, and new window clings are in the mail to all of you! 

The 13th Annual Great Northwest Glass Quest  is coming up soon – starting on February 17th thru the 28th.  We are busy bees behind the scenes working on this event.  The website should be updated soon with 2022 information and the digital booklet.  We are so thankful to be able to have this event again – it is one we know we can do safely, drive traffic into businesses, and most importantly HAVE FUN.  

You should have received our Member Meetings scheduled thru May in a previous email – information is also included below.  We are excited to offer informative meetings on topics that are interesting and pertinent to our community and your business.  Our January meeting is NEXT THURSDAY (2/20 at 11:30) Register below – we will be presenting our annual State of the Chamber Address – and hear from Island County Commissioner Janet St. Clair on Island County initiatives and goals for 2022.  PRE-REGISTER for this meeting (held on Zoom) here.
