Chamber of Commerce Christmas Gala 2021

The Chamber of Commerce hosted the party of the year, possibly even the decade, at their 4th annual Christmas gala on December 2nd! Two years in the making (thank you COVID), the event was planned to perfection; and made me feel as though I had traveled through time to a lively and entertaining era of 100 years ago. Citizens of the valley - some representing local businesses, others there for a good time, and all dressed in their best 1920's attire- were greeted upon arrival at the Zermatt Resort by a ‘Moffia’ gangster…

Come together it takes a community

Knowing the children have full bellies and a warm hand to hold might make a spectator feel as if they have stumbled onto a paved, urban version of The Grinch’s Whoville; cue the singing. The children hear a soft buzzing — quiet at first and a bit confusing but all the more exciting as it moves closer.

A bit of an untraditional form of transportation perhaps, but no less special for these kids as…
