November 28th  
and will continue to carry promote it

been embraced as part of the holiday shopping tradition as each
year shoppers, businesses and public officials come together to
Shop Small® and show their neighborhood pride.
“The River Heights Chambers vision is not only to be the premier
advocate for small business, but also to be the small business
champion of promoting the local business community.” Said Kelton
Glewwe of Roadware Inc. and the 2015 Chairman of the River Heights
Chamber of Commerce.

on Disability and other groups to draft a proposal they
plan to present during the 2016 legislative session.
They hope to give business owners an opportunity to
bring their facilities into compliance with the
Minnesota Human Rights Act before a lawsuit could
proceed. Read the full article here.
