Post Falls Chamber of Commerce
Congratulations to all our local graduates. Having judged the PFHS and CHS senior projects, I am encouraged and amazed by our youth. We are in good hands.
According to the calendar, summer will officially arrive on June 20. However, according to most of our visitors coming through our doors, “summer” is here and the gates are open to North Idaho.
Post Falls will start the season off with our annual parade and Post Falls Days the first weekend in June. Our guest of honor will be Jerry Lyon, Citizen of the Year, leading the Saturday morning parade beginning at 11 a.m.
The Post Falls chamber is pleased to host our 20th Annual Golf Tournament on June 22 at 1 p.m. at the Highlands Golf Course. A Red Neck “Hole in One” will take place just prior to the shot-gun start where 100’s of golf balls will be dropped from a crane over the greens. The ball that goes in the hole will win half the proceeds. Golf balls can be purchased at the chamber for just $20 and you need not be present to WIN. We welcome golfers of every skill level to participate and proceeds benefit local programs and projects that support economic development, tourism and business education.
We are accepting applications for the 2013 River City Leadership Academy. The academy is a two-part program designed for professionals to explore and discover Post Falls, Kootenai County and Idaho treasures. Participants learn about current issues, hot topics and opportunities that affect us as citizens and business leaders. In addition to the 80 hours of community exploration, the Post Falls chamber is proud to provide 16 hours of customized classroom training led by a personal development coach and certified facilitator. Our goal is for each “business professional” to gain leadership skills within themselves and then lead others. Application deadline is June 7. Program runs September 2012 to June 2013. Please request more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Post Falls chamber will host a Tapas Contest for local chefs in July, in preparation for our “Tapas and Tailgating” party in September. More than $3,000 in prize money is up for grabs, so contact us for an invitation to participate. Information: email@example.com
Several businesses will celebrate grand openings, anniversaries and special milestones in our community in the month of June. I encourage our readers to visit our website for weekly updates as to what is going on where, and join us! Information: www.postfallschamber.com
