Business over Breakfast
Chamber Members are invited to join us on Wednesday, July 17 from 8 – 9 a.m at UMB Bank. This event is a great way to meet other Chamber members and make new connections. Meet bank representatives, learn about services, chamber programs, activities and additional speaker share.
Community is what brings people together, and for Wickenburg residents, there is no better way to become a part of your community than by volunteering at this year’s annual heritage events.
Fiesta de Septiembre starts off the season with great entertainment, contests, kid’s zone, food and drink and Hispanic families’ photo exhibit.
Conscious of the heat, for our Sept. 7 Fiesta de Septiembre, volunteers are being sought to work just two-hour shifts, between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday. Other events follow with many shifts to cover for: Wickenburg Fly-In & Classic Car Show, Bluegrass in November, Cowboy Christmas Poetry Gathering, & Christmas Light Parade in December, and our signature event 72nd Annual Gold Rush Days & Rodeo, Feb. 7-9, 2020. “When you live in a community, you really need to give back to your community,” says Chamber President Brent McKeever. “You owe something to your community when you live there, and volunteering is a good, easy way to do that.”
The Wickenburg Chamber Education Committee will again host a luncheon to welcome new teachers to our school district.
