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.

March is an exciting month for the Post Falls Chamber. We are honored to welcome Director Bobby-Jo Meuleman from Idaho Department of Commerce as our keynote speaker at our March 20 Connect 4 Lunch meeting.

March 21 is our Annual Reverse Job Fair presented by the Business & Education Committee. Last year,

seniors from Post Falls High School, New Vision High School and Genesis Preparatory Academy were awarded $12,000 worth of college scholarships funded by local businesses.

We couldn’t be more proud of this annual event, hosted, planned and executed by the Business & Education Committee. Event Chair Jessie Morrow of Kootenai County Fire & Rescue is well underway with planning the event.

Looking ahead… Wednesday, April 25, is our Community Business Fair. Thank you to our Grand Sponsor, Northwest Specialty Hospital. This is a wonderful event to promote commerce in our community with 90+ businesses under one roof. Awards will be given for: Best Booth, Marketing Guru, Most Creative and Best Food.
