The Carbon County Chamber of Commerce’s monthly luncheon was hosted once again at the Tuscan Event Center on Thursday afternoon.
Members of the chamber, along with various guests, were welcomed to enjoy a hearty lunch while learning more about the businesses and organizations in the area as well as upcoming events. First off, Rory Bradley, Wellington City Police Chief, took time to speak about the city’s annual Pioneer Days celebration.
Pioneer Days is traditionally hosted in Wellington during the summertime. This year, Pioneer Days took place on July 18-20.
Bradley and his wife Sarah spearhead the celebration each year. He spoke briefly on organizing the celebration and incorporating new ideas, such as the paint the street event that was the kickoff to the celebration on Thursday evening, as well as staples like the parade. Bradley thanked all that have helped to spread the word on the event.
Next, Jane Lancaster and Julie Green with Southeastern Utah Title Company took to the podium as the business spotlight of the month.
Both ladies have been with the title company for over 20 years. First, they took time to explain how they came to own it together and what they do in their day-to-day business lives. The two work diligently to assist those that are in the process of buying a home to secure their title. Those at Southeast Utah Title Company are revered for their work.
Then, Austin Preston with the Small Business Development Center presented an upcoming training entitled “Growth by the Numbers,” urging those at the luncheon to sign up. The training is slated for Aug. 7.
Kurt Jensen also spoke briefly on an exciting upcoming event. A mountain bike course has been created north of the posse fields in Price and a high school mountain bike competition is slated to bring an influx of three to four thousand people to Carbon County this October.
Jensen invited all to a cleanup of the course that took place on Saturday and encouraged business owners to cleanup their storefronts and throw their doors wide come October.
Finally, Andy Urbanik of Castle Country Radio closed out the luncheon with a presentation on all things sales and marketing. The chamber’s event in August is an exciting one that is slated to take place at Tavaputs Ranch.
