Chamber committee to host monthly meet n greet

The community is invited to join chamber members for Try Local Tuesday, from 4:30-6 p.m. Nov. 4 at the Sears Home Appliance Showroom, in Gresham Town Fair, 500 N.W. Eastman Parkway.

This month, enjoy the humor and culinary skill of Roving Chaplain Harold Fuller, who will demonstrate the art of holiday pie baking.

Each month, the Try Local First committee spotlights an area merchant as a way to remind residents to keep money in the community by shopping close to home and supporting local businesses. Get acquainted with the crew at the Sears Home Appliance Showroom over complimentary light food and beverages.

For more information, call the chamber at 503-665-1131.

Whos your favorite young business professional?

The Outlook is interested in doing monthly stories on the best of the best young managers and staff members of businesses in East Multnomah County. If you own, operate or are a customer of a business in Gresham, Troutdale, Fairview, Wood Village, Corbett, Boring or Damascus, and know of an exceptional employee under the age of 35 who you think warrants some recognition, please let us know by contacting Business Reporter Anne Endicott at aendicott@theoutlookonline.com. These should be people who are at the top of their game. We'll need a short description of why you think this employee deserves the recognition. We'll feature these people in our "Who to Watch" segment that will appear on our business page.
