If someone had bet me $10 six months ago that I would be sending out multiple requests a week to people all over the country with information on Fortuna, I would be out $10!!! Between 30-40 people each month email us a request for information on our events, lodging, activities, and parks. All of these requests are going to receive our new Visitor's Guide and a unique postcard created by Mary Bullwinkel.

Ah shucks. Thank you. But I don't think I can take credit for someone in Georgia asking about Fortuna. 😄🤣

So awesome!! You are AMAZING!! So glad you are our fearless leader:)

These extra steps go a long way to those who receive the info. I had a friend relocating out of state a few years back who had inquired with Chambers in potential towns. The ones who responded made her short list. You never know the ultimate impact of being neighborly! Way to go Friendly City 🙌🏻 I ♥️ our Chamber of Commerce

Awesome. Send out the beautiful new relocation guide!!!

I love this❤️❤️Reminds me of when I was in grammar school and we use to pick a state and do a report on it. But in order to do so? We had to send a letter to the Chamber of Commerce .They then would send out one of these packets🙌🙌great memories 🥰

It’s because you are doing an amazing job! 🤗

Yesterday, while having lunch out of town, we were talking to our waitress about careers and college etc.. She is 20 y/o and going to college... We mentioned living in Fortuna.. She commented on Fortuna having it "together". We said, yes, we do... Nice to hear from someone who lives a couple towns north of us.

So awesome! 🙏🏻

Another fantastic mixer in the books! Thank you to everyone who came out to support Main Street Barber. The food provided by Smokin Barrels was delicious. We had great door prizes. Our very own Ambassador Chair, Becky Giacomini, won $85 in the 50-50 raffle. And we got to sing "Happy Birthday" to Regina Fuller!
.
Next month, we party at Tri Counties Bank on Wednesday, May 15. Save the date!
