Chamber News

There’s so much to talk about and the best way to begin is by welcoming these new members to the Chamber starting with Mark Sutton. I remember Mr. Sutton telling me back in 2020, “When the Sundowners come back I’ll rejoin,” and true to his word he was. With check in-hand,... — Updated 4/15/2022


Chamber Mixes it Up

After a two year hiatus, the Chamber of Commerce held a St. Patrick’s Day Sundowner/Mixer. With 70 plus attendees filling up Arches Restaurant and spilling over into the patio and bar area the scene was set for a lighthearted and enjoyable evening. Our host location, the... — Updated 4/1/2022


Chamber Comments

Just when we thought our stress levels might fall as the masks came off and the infection numbers came down, we are now faced with the tragic situation in Ukraine, which once again ultimately affects us all. So many of you are finding ways to help, and from a daughter whose... — Updated 3/18/2022


Chamber Compares Growth Versus Visitors

March has come roaring in and so have the snowbirds, the season almost feels like old times. However, for many new residents who moved to Borrego during the pandemic, this population boom has come as a big surprise and a lot of questions. Recently, I had a new member visit the... — Updated 3/11/2022


Chamber Discontinues Faxing Service

In a recent Borrego Springs Chamber of Commerce E-Blast, the Chamber has announced that they will be discontinuing their faxing service. This change comes after several fraudulent fax requests. “We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to resume in the fut... — Updated 3/1/2022


Chamber Welcomes Area Spotlight

February is finding itself to bring many spotlights on the Borrego Springs area which is an economic boost for everyone. However before I share some of the happenings I do need to make a correction (as yes I freely admit I do make mistakes) regarding a new President’s Club... — Updated 2/25/2022


Chamber's A Busy Place

February ‘the month of love’ is here and wow, can we all use some love. So many locals and visitors have remarked about the high stress level everyone seems to be under and how a small occurrence can set off a tirade. Please take a moment and a deep breath when you sense a... — Updated 2/8/2022


Chamber's A Busy Place

Hard to believe we’ve passed the January midway point, but time is shifting us into season-high gear. So far this month we’ve had visitors from British Columbia, Alberta, Australia, France and from across the U.S. It is interesting to hear why people come to Borrego Springs... — Updated 1/24/2022


Chamber's Ready for 2022

Chamber Closes Out 2021

This is it, our last Chamber Update for 2021! The past year has certainly had its ups and downs affecting all of us in different ways.

Chamber Thanks Christmas Circle Foundation

From June through Borrego Days I must have said, written, posted and read the words “Christmas Circle Community Park” over a thousand times! However, what I failed to do was make sure that everyone on the Christmas Circle Community Park, Inc., Board of Directors and all... — Updated 12/1/2021

Now that the Chamber/Welcome Center is back open five days a week, we’ve caught up on the daily phone calls with over 50% of them asking about Borrego Days. “Is it happening, please send a vendors permit, how can I volunteer and of course will there be a super bloom next... — Updated 9/21/2021


Chamber Brings Good News

For the Chamber which is normally closed in the month of August, it has been a whirlwind of activity behind the closed doors. It all began with the disturbing SVP Merle Wakefield announcement where we quickly set the response ball in motion, arranging the Community Town Hall,... — Updated 9/7/2021


Chamber in August

As we moved into August it was so wonderful to feel the raindrops in July. Not nearly as much rain as we would have liked or needed, but still a refreshing occurrence. Welcome to new members, Konki & Rick Jarvis and The Propeller Bar & Grill. I’m happy to say that Konki will be... — Updated 8/13/2021


Chambers Busy Summer

Isn’t summer normally the time of the year when Borregans sit back and take a breather before we gear up for the new season? Well that’s what I thought, but so far it’s not happening and for several great reasons. We’ll start with welcoming more new members to the... — Updated 7/28/2021


Chamber Welcomes New Members

Yes it’s summer and hot, however that doesn’t mean the world nor Borrego Springs shuts down. Many years ago that’s what did happen in desert communities but as the years went by more homeowners became year-round residents and the visitors just kept coming. With that said... — Updated 7/19/2021


Chambers 55th Annual Borrego Days Desert Festival

If you haven’t heard the news, it’s on, the 55th Annual Borrego Days Desert Festival, themed “Welcome Back!” Before you read any further, I need to clear up one small miscommunication in my last writings (sometimes the brain says one thing and what’s written says... — Updated 6/30/2021


Chamber Who & What's New

June is here and the calls are coming in daily about Borrego Days and will there be one, but I’ll get to that in a minute. First, we want to welcome Daniel Wright to the Chamber Board of Directors.

Chamber Bids Farewell to Snowbirds

As the weather is being windblown into the 90’s I see many of the snowbirds or part-timers heading for cooler climates. This past season has been interesting in so many ways such as Borrego being a full-time residence for many (because of the virus) and the first time for those... — Updated 5/21/2021


Chamber and Borrego Days

Like everyone else, when the board of directors and me hear the words “full reopening” we think of Borrego Days 2021. Then reality hits us and the doubt creeps in. In the Editorial column of the Borrego Sun's previous issue it was mentioned that Borrego Days is doubtful. With... — Updated 5/6/2021


Chamber Stepping Into April

How can we not like a month that starts out with a ‘Fools Day’, then brings us ‘Good Friday, Easter and Ramadan’, and hopefully some beautiful flowers. If you haven’t noticed, the dump site on Palm Canyon Drive is gone. We thank the county for taking action and the... — Updated 4/7/2021
