Wearing our Heart on our Sleeve!

A little history from the 'Dealer with a Heart'!The Legend of St Valentine

Coaches vs. Cancer

If you look around, you'll find that there are so many amazing people in our community and Coach Chris Knudsen is one of them. First of all, we'd like to congratulate him on receiving the 'Coach of the Year' award, but it doesn't stop there. Chris's heart is much bigger than just the next win for the football team. And one of the things that is near and dear to him is the Coaches vs. Cancer program. This is especially close to Kris and the school as one of its coaches/teachers, Justin Rosenblad, is battling stomach cancer.

Good Businesses make Good Communities Happen!

Every year, the Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center conducts a polling of the local business community for nominations for outstanding service exhibited throughout the year. This year, the Gresham Rotary joined in with some categories as well.


The Port of Portland (Port) is seeking all labor, equipment, apparatus, containers, appliances, tools, transportation, and other facilities and services, excluding Port-owned compactors and containers, necessary to perform waste hauling and recycling services.

Ladies Night Out!

This winter has been tough on all of us, but for businesses, it's been especially tough. Keeping the doors open and the lights on for many of the small businesses, and even the home based businesses in our community has really been a challenge. It has also been hard to get out and about and socialize and enjoy good friends, good food and good company. So, with that in mind several women came up with an idea, not only for those that may be suffering from a bit of cabin fever, but also to give our business community a little shot in the arm, to have a 'Ladies Night Out'.

Oh, that Weather outside!

We have experienced some frightful weather this winter season! And while this may cause some of us inconvenience, those that struggle to make ends meet through this time of year have even more challenges as icy roads make it impossible to get to work, schools close and kids are home so even if you can get to work, there's the issue of extra expense for child care. Utilities, food and pretty much every basic need seem to be just out of reach.
