Pub Talks – Summer Stand-up Meeting

$10 – $15

Join your fellow business professionals for a Stand-up Meeting to get focused, share what help you need, and support your peers who need help!   Usually they take around 15 minutes and are held standing up (surprise!). The idea is to keep the meeting short and to the point, and address the questions:   What did I accomplish in the last (day/week/month)? What am I focused on achieving next? What obstacles are impeding my progress? What help do I need from the group?   Stand-Up meetings are a popular way for teams to return their attention to focused goals and clear and specific action steps to reach those goals, as well as an effective way to give and receive help/mentorship, and identify solutions to potential roadblocks ahead.   Mix and mingle from 5-5:30, Sink-Your-Teeth into workshop starts at 5:30pm. Thursday, July 26th 5-7PM Lane Community College 3149 Oak Street  …

It is with great pleasure the Florence Area Chamber of Commerce presents the 2019 Annual Independence Day Fireworks!  Special thanks to the Port of Siuslaw for providing the launching location! Each year, with additional help from many generous business owners and private citizens, our Florence Area Chamber of Commerce funds and produces the annual Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration. For the past several years, we've been able to present an outstanding display over the Port of Siuslaw which draws thousands of spectators to our beautiful town. The 4th of July is a special day for Americans to celebrate our nation’s birthday and honor the patriotism of those who made our independence possible. Economic conditions have been it difficult for many smaller communities to continue to fund a fireworks display, but our Chamber Board is committed to maintaining this long standing tradition in Florence.
