Renton Chamber of Commerce ‘makes a difference’ | LETTER

In the spirit of this Thanksgiving season, we want to give our sincere thanks for and to the Renton Chamber of Commerce.

The Renton Chamber has been serving our businesses and community for more than 76 years. With such a long presence and history, it’s easy to take their services for granted or simply overlook their many contributions to our community. But the Renton Chamber is a very essential partner in Renton.

The chamber is constantly working to promote our community to those who visit, live, work and play here. From producing new and exciting community events like Tequila Fest, RenCon and Yappy Hour to providing their “Upcoming Events” calendar and weekly electronic “News Blast,” the chamber is continuously promoting Renton. From providing meeting room space and sponsoring or partnering in other community organization produced events, such as the Downtown Renton Storm Trooper Cleanup(s), Downtown Renton Wine Walk, Old Fashioned Halloween Party, Small Business Saturday, Holiday Tree Lighting, Santa Arrival and many others, the Renton Chamber enriches our city through their tireless efforts.

The Renton Chamber makes a difference. Renton is a better place because of their devoted service to our community. In this season of Thanksgiving — and in every other season of the year — the Renton Chamber of Commerce, its Board and its staff deserve our recognition and shout outs of gratitude.
