r The chamber is excited to welcome some great businesses to our chamber community: The Insurance Center, SYH Payroll Services Inc, 800 Lawn Care and Mama Cat’s Food Emporium. Stop by and see what they can do for you.
In April, we honored Leavitt Group Insurance as our Business of the Month. Even before their doors were open at their new location in Santaquin, Curt Riplinger rolled up his sleeves to make our chamber better, so it was a fun opportunity to award the Business of the Month at their ribbon-cutting celebration. We’re excited to have them in our community.
This year’s Easter Hunt was lots of fun with lovely weather and more eggs than ever before. Special thanks go to Payson City employees for all their help as well as our field sponsors who helped the Easter Bunny get all those eggs out for each of the fields. Miss Payson was on hand to help pass out prizes and won some huge fans from the kids she met.
Lt. Governor Spencer Cox spoke at the chamber’s April Networking Lunch. He shared his thoughts on the future of transportation and some of the state’s efforts to bring more business opportunities to communities like ours. We’d like to express our thanks to Kevin Thompson with Dalton’s Memorial and Representative Mike McKell for making the luncheon possible.
