"As a small business owner in a small town, we find it very important to belong to our local chamber.  It helps us to know what's going on with other local, small businesses and reminds us to support each other.  The communication from the chamber is great to inform us about local events going on in our community and provides and easy way for us to share the word on social media"

"There is a big difference between a group of individuals and a team.  I have had a very positive experience with the team effort put forth by the Spirit Lake Chamber of Commerce and its members' contributions to bettering our community.  All of our situations improve when our community grows.  We have the opportunity to live and work in one of the greatest communities in the state.  I encourage everyone to join the team and help keep it this way.  Nobody can do it alone."
