Dear River Heights Business Community,
It has been a hard time to be in leadership, and I imagine for most of you, it’s been a hard time to be a business owner or employee, a school administrator, a government official, a parent, a student, a friend. What we are currently experiencing is definitely new territory for all of us.
First and foremost, I want to assure you that the River Heights Chamber of Commerce will continue to be a voice of reason, sharing factual information as it becomes available and we will work tirelessly to advocate for and support our local businesses and communities. We will be funneling information down to you through our resource page, from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, MN DEED and other useful resources and partners. In March, we compiled a list of local restaurants, coffee shops & bars, and food establishments to continue connecting the community to who is offering take-out and/or deliveries (email Colleen with updates) in the River Heights Region Restaurant & Food Guide.
We will continue to update events, add virtual meetings and webinars, update job postings and share successes of our business community to our website and social media.
We encourage you to come to the social media table with gratitude and positivity. Why? Because we need to band together as businesses and community to support one another – we are stronger together!
What can you do?
- Post your business doing some random act of kindness
- Highlight your staff or a product we can learn about
- Send us a short video on your business
- Share fun facts or historical anecdotes about your business
- Shout out to another local business
We are in this together. If you have any suggestions for the River Heights Chamber, feel free to email us. We may not have the answer, but we can listen. I am so proud of the measures so many of you are taking already to adapt and showcase leadership to those around you.
Adam Bengtson, 2020 Chairman, River Heights Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors
