Summer Scavenger Hunt

Do you remember going on scavenger hunts when you were a kid? Do you remember the excitement and the thrill of the chase? The Conifer Chamber is excited to bring that back with the Summer Scavenger Hunt! This summer, between July 1 and August 31, participating businesses will be hiding a fox in their physical location or on their website if they are home based businesses. You can download a game card or pick one up at the stores and start. Visit each store/website listed on the game card, find the fox and then ask the business owner to sign off on your card. Once complete, turn the cards into the Chamber office and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win various prizes. The prizes and game details will be listed on our website at

The Summer Scavenger Hunt is another way we can promote businesses and partner to get them back to business. I’m sure you have seen the Conifer Chamber hard at work advocating for support for our local businesses through funding and educational opportunities, advocating for a variance to reopen industries that are still closed, and advocating for our businesses by speaking to the restrictions and how those restrictions are impacting our businesses and community.

This past membership meeting (held on June 12) dealt with the PPP and applying for the loan forgiveness. We had a local representative from the Small Business Development Center in Boulder online to answer any questions and walk businesses through the process of applying for the loan forgiveness. That meeting, along with other online meetings are available to members through the member portal. Just log in and click on “resources.”

Another opportunity the Chamber has to offer is the June Business Networking event to be held online June 25 from 5:30-6:30 pm. Join us for this event and get a chance to talk to other businesses and connect online. Log on to to register for the event and the meeting link will be emailed to you.

This past month, the Conifer Chamber recognized local businesses, organizations and individuals that have positively impacted our community and helped to make the 285 Corridor a better place to live. The winners for the 2020 Annual Awards are:
