Heber Valley Insider: We're All In

  • Posted On: 1/25/21 at 02:35 PM
Welcome to a new year! 2020 is in the past, and let’s leave it there! Despite all the hardships we all were faced with in 2020 there was a lot of good, or silver linings, that came from 2020. Many businesses had to flex their creative muscles to provide new solutions to their customers from figuring out curbside delivery, visits by appointments, mask mandates, there was a lot to think about and adjust. It was awe-inspiring to watch how our businesses and community rallied around each other to support friends, neighbors, and even complete strangers for the good of the valley.

September Business Insider - Learning to Adapt

  • Posted On: 9/2/20 at 11:16 AM
COVID has taught us many things. Being adaptable to new conditions and circumstances is just one of the many things we have learned. We have seen businesses adapt remarkably by adding appointments, curbside pick up, PPE, and more. It seems like the most successful businesses are those who learn to adapt and move with the shifting economic tides. We are grateful to the chamber membership for being adaptable by allowing us to shift with the tides of COVID by having our luncheon at Heber City Park this past Tuesday. After six months without a chamber luncheon, there were a few cobwebs we had to dust off, but thanks to an amazing chamber advisory board and the staff at the chamber the event went very smoothly. It felt good to be among friends again!

The past few weeks have been quite interesting to say the least. As the coronavirus has moved across the globe it is evident how much our planet has become smaller and that we are all part of a larger global community. But like all important things the solution always starts local. As our community faces the challenges of dealing with the coronavirus we should take comfort in the coordinated and collaborative approach our community officials have taken to help Heber Valley residents.

This past luncheon we got to hear from three elected officials who shared with us many of the projects they are working on for their communities. During their presentations it was clear how important good leadership with a strong vision is for our growing community. Our valley is ever evolving. Without people willing to step up and get involved our future is like a ship with no captain, at the mercy of wherever the currents will take us.

You know that saying, “hindsight is always 20/20”, meaning that things become clearer when we realize we could have acted, said, or done something different in the past? Why does the past always have to be clearer? Why can’t we have a clear and focused future? In the optometry world 20/20 vision refers to the clarity or sharpness of your vision. This year as we celebrate a new decade and enter into 2020 let’s create a clear future for Heber Valley.

Heber Valley Insider: November 2019

A few years back I asked my now 7-year-old daughter what she wanted to be when she grew up, she said with a straight face “a ladybug.” I am glad we live in a world where my children, both my boys and my girls, have more access to opportunity and face fewer barriers than any other period in history.

During the eight years I’ve lived in the Heber Valley, I’ve been more than impressed by the hard work and volunteerism that takes place during Swiss Days. Hundreds of volunteers work countless hours to run one of Utah’s best festivals. This small-town event is a wonderful model for working together to create outstanding results. Like Swiss Days, our local businesses can also accomplish amazing things as they work together, and the Heber Valley Chamber is grateful to work hand in hand with you to realize your goals.

Just last year, the unthinkable happened at the Heber Valley Chamber Golf Tournament: Paul Christensen—the General Manager of the Homestead Resort and a player in the tournament—made a hole in one and took home a new Chevy Colorado from Labrum Chevrolet. While we can’t promise that lighting will strike twice and that we’ll have another hole-in-one winner, we can guarantee that this year’s golf tournament will be filled with great company, fun games, awesome prizes, and of course, a lot of missing golf balls.

What is the value of great service? I’m often asked what new and exciting businesses are coming to town. Some people dream of large retail stores while others fantasize about their favorite restaurant. Most people, however, don’t ask about financial planners, insurance agents, realtors, CPAs, massage therapists, specialty health care providers, or other service-oriented businesses.

In this meeting, community and business leaders from Wasatch and Summit counties gathered to learn about issues facing both communities. The word connecting applies throughout the Heber Valley as our members continue connecting through networking lunches, service projects, and a host of other community events.

For the past few years, the Heber Valley Chamber of Commerce has sponsored the “Heber Valley Golf Tournament” which has quickly become the most fun golf outing in the valley. The money raised from this tournament has been reinvested into community beautification projects ranging from street banners to blade signs for small businesses. This year, we expect another great turnout and hope for a lot of fun. With your support, we’ll continue enhancing our community with the money raised at the golf tournament. Unlike previous years, however, this year’s tournament is almost sold out. Please register for the tournament soon and start swinging your clubs in preparation for the outing in August.

Local Events, Opportunities, Business of the Month, FREE Golf, and More!

The Heber Valley continues to grow in great proportions (about 1300 new people per year). While these statistics can be both exciting and alarming, we need to continue finding ways to address the growth and the challenges and opportunities it brings.

Deer Valley Ski Resort is one of the jewels of the Wasatch Back, and the Deer Crest area (near Jordanelle) provides tremendous tax relief to Wasatch County residents by way of the many second and third homes located in this area.
