Ladies and Gentlemen: 


Please welcome Chamber’s newest member: Dragon Village Chinese Restaurant located at 155 S. Main St. in Colville. Stop by and enjoy some Chinese food and meet the new owners, Jian Wen Zhu and his family. 


We put together a survey of seven Main Street issues and distributed them to the businesses, property owners and employees in our Downtown core area.  We asked them to rate the level of importance of proposed Downtown needs and projects. Rating from (1) being the highest to (8) being the lowest.  We also offered an option for comments.  There were 92 surveys returned and the results will be presented at the City Council meeting, next Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 6:30 p.m.   Please plan on attending. 


We are taking registrations for vendor spaces at the Home & Garden Show on March 17 & 18.  The Home & Garden Show is a marketing tool that delivers a focused audience to your business or services you provide.  We expect over a 1,000 visitors.  Contact us for registration forms or they are available on our website under the red Events tab.
