One of my favorite quotes is from Harry S. Truman: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who takes credit.”
However, it is also REALLY fun to surprise deserving citizens and businesses with recognition for years of service and positive impact in our community.
For nearly three decades, the Post Falls Chamber of Commerce has been coming together to celebrate community leaders who leave their unique mark along the way as our community grows and flourishes. We were thrilled to celebrate some deserving community leaders at the Community Recognition Gala presented by Numerica Credit Union.
Congratulations to Real Life Ministries, Spirit of Post Falls award; Chris Pappas, Volunteer of the Year; Jordan Sales & Service, Business of the Year; and Pam Houser, Citizen of the Year.
