Happy Birthday, Tooele County Chamber of Commerce!

Last week Berna and I had the opportunity to participate in a "Happy Birthday" barbeque put on by the Tooele Chamber.

It was held at the City Park in conjunction with the "Friday nights on Vine St." concert series. It was the Chamber's 60th birthday. We grilled some great burgers and hot dogs, and served several hundred of our closest friends.

For a $1 donation (or 1 can of food), they got a burger or dog, chips, cookie and drink. Macey's and the Chamber supplied the food (including a great birthday cake!) and Denny's and  Steve Smith from American Family Insurance supplied the drinks. Everyone sat under the trees and listened to some wonderful country music from the Painted Desert Band. 

We raised over $300 plus 70 cans of food to supply lunches for the homeless here in Tooele County.

The concert series originally started at the Veterans Park on Main and Vine, but grew too big, so it's been moved to the Pool Park.

As it was designed to bring people to Tooele's downtown retail area, I hope that the city figures out a way to keep the attention downtown. They were the real beneficiaries and the city moved the series! They have until April to figure out a new plan. In any event, it was great fun!

The Tooele City Chamber of Commerce has been doing this "good Work"for 60 years !!!!!
