The Christmas tree is standing tall at the top of town and Santa will be arriving to join in to celebrate the most magical time of the year! The annual Magical Country Christmas will be held on Saturday, December 1st, from 5-7pm, in Historic Uptown Susanville. The celebration includes musical entertainment, Christmas Parade, Toys for Tots drive, and fireworks to ring in the Christmas season. Main Street will be closed to thru traffic during the celebration. This is a fun filled event for the whole family. If you are interested in participating in the parade or being a vendor, log on to the chamber website to download an application at www.lassencountychamber.org .

2019 Labor Law posters that feature the required federal and state notices on one poster will be ordered soon and available to Chamber members for $30.00 or/ non-member for $40.00 per poster. California businesses are required to post updated employment posters at each place of business. Contact the Chamber office at 257-4323 if you would like to have a poster ordered for your business.

The chamber board of directors is accepting applications to fill two board vacancies; one is an unexpired term that runs thru December 2020, vacant because of the recent passing of board member Vicki Lozano, and the second, is to begin a new three year term that will be created after Phil Fetterman’s term expires.  If you are a chamber member and are interested in applying to fill one of the board vacancies, stop by the Chamber office, located at 1516 Main Street, to pick up an application.

In rural Northern California there is a critical need for dependable broadband to serve business, telehealth, distance education, economic/workforce development and emergency services communication.  Geographical Information Center at CSU, Chico is doing a Business Broadband Survey and CalSPEED Internet Usage Study. In conjunction with the California Public Utilities Commission, the Geographical Information Center at CSU, Chico is collecting important data from our region to prove the case that improved service is desperately needed, and to show that in some areas, businesses are not receiving the speeds that their carriers are advertising.

By completing the Business Broadband Survey at https://www.necalbroadband.org  you will be confirming or refuting carrier supplied information and helping provide a more accurate description of coverage in California.   To check your internet speeds download the CalSPEED usage study at (https://www.necalbroadband.org/#calspeed).
