Visit with local business owners

The Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce will have its Good Evening Sandy networking event at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, at the Clackamas County Health Wellness Center at Sandy High School, 37400 Bell St.

The gathering is held to give opportunities for local entrepreneurs to meet people from other businesses, while enjoying some fun, door prizes and refreshments.

Bring a dollar to enter a drawing, which gives prizes to the winners and saves 50 cents from each entrant to pay for gifts and food for a needy family next Christmas.
