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.

If you think the Soldier Hollow Classic is simply for shepherds then you would be mistaken. The classic is more than this, actually a whole lot more. Hands down the main draw of the classic is to watch the handler and border collie become one as they masterfully guide the sheep through, over and around obstacles. It’s an amazing sight to behold to watch how all this is done with just the sound of whistles.
