Chamber's Ready for 2022

Happy New Year! This is normally the time when everyone is sharing New Year’s resolutions, but here at the Chamber we are ready to get our full season underway and that means continuing to deal with the ever changing Covid guidelines, welcoming new visitors, residents and... — Updated 1/6/2022


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. One thing for certain is that the community of Borrego Springs stayed united (despite the differences of opinions) throughout it all. We’ve... — Updated 12/29/2021


Chamber Cheer!

December is here and if November is any indication of our snowbirds coming back, then the season is going to be a busy one! Let’s welcome the following new Chamber members, the Under the Sun Foundation, Bill Hall – Owner of W.J. Hall Construction and Home Repairs, as well as... — Updated 12/15/2021


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


Chamber Brings October Excitement

Our first excitement in October is welcoming two new members to the Chamber, and they are the Borrego Ministers’ Association and Kendall’s Café. You’ll find more information about these exceptional new members on the Chamber website: Time is flying by as... — Updated 10/18/2021


Chamber Welcomes Fall

At this point anything below 100 degrees is a welcome experience and before you know it we’ll be grabbing sweaters for our morning outings. Since we’re on the subject of welcomes, the Chamber is thrilled to have the Borrego Valley Airport back as a member, with the airport... — Updated 10/1/2021


Chamber Says "Get Ready for Borrego Days"

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. Daniel and his family have been advocates of the community for many years. Think... — Updated 6/11/2021


Chamber Travel Tips

The world is changing rapidly and many Borregans are thinking about traveling somewhere, well almost anywhere for a change of scenery after this past year. Keeping health concerns in mind, and deciding what is best for you and your family, here is some industry news and current... — Updated 6/3/2021


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 Events are Happening

It happens every year, the weather warms up and the snowbirds scatter for cooler climates. However, this time, they’ll be missing out on a few events in Borrego Springs that are a welcome sight for everyone. Starting with a twist is the Borrego Springs ‘Drive-In’ Film... — Updated 4/16/2021


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


Chamber March Madness

I’m not sure if I should laugh or weep at how quickly time is going by right now. I recall looking at the Borrego Sun submissions deadline and thinking “I have plenty of time to write something.” Next thing I know Jolene is emailing me about my article, oops! March started... — Updated 3/24/2021


Chamber "This and That"

The stories I’ve heard about the Sundowners at the Borrego Springs Airport go unmatched, and with each account come’s the statement from the storyteller “We never missed it!” As I mentioned in my last column, there is a shift happening in Borrego and this is a major one.... — Updated 3/8/2021


Chamber: Do You Feel the Shift?

With this column comes the uncertainty of what I’ll write about and what you end up reading. Sometimes I know the topic weeks in advance, other times I have a few ideas and then change at the last minute as I did with this one. At first I was tossing around the idea of an... — Updated 3/3/2021


Chamber: "If Only We Can Predict the Future"

Let me guess, your first thought was “oh no, not another report about the virus.” Sorry to disappoint, but this column has to do with the weather, blooming flowers and visitors. Within the last week the Chamber has been getting calls daily from people all over the country... — Updated 2/15/2021


Chamber Welcomes New Residents

To say “change is in the air” is a huge understatement, and a certain fact of life. One of the major changes Borregans are going to see is all of the new faces of new residents. The Chamber would like to send a warm welcome to our new residents and a few words to help you... — Updated 1/26/2021


Chamber Deny or Comply

As we transition into 2021, a last-minute decision was made to postpone the Borrego Springs Film Festival. Our hopes are to have it later in the year. On to the deny or comply topic, which is about a split-second decision I was recently faced with in the grocery store parking lot... — Updated 1/6/2021


Chamber Moves into the Holidays

As the holiday season is truly upon us, there is one thing we know for sure – these holidays will be like none other. We’ll all be fighting the urge to visit family and friends, along with the inner struggle of making the right decision. There is no easy answer except to... — Updated 12/1/2020
