The Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiv­ing!

“There is certainly a lot to be thankful for in 2018,” said the Chamber’s Executive Director Alex Ward. “This summer, in light of the devastating West Fire, the community of Alpine and many others came together without hesitation to support our neighbors who lost their homes.

“The Chamber wants to ex­press our sincere gratitude to all who supported the fundraiser for those affected. The West Fire Benefit demonstrated that the bonds of our community are strong and unshaken by adver­sity.

“The Chamber is proud to serve you. Happy Thanksgiving to all of Alpine and the Moun­tain Empire!”

While the Chamber will be closed Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving, please remem­ber to shop, dine and enjoy Al­pine and the Mountain Empire on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24!

It’s a great way to support the many small businesses for all that they do to help this rural area thrive.

Small businesses provide local jobs, major community events and hope for better futures.

Please stop by this Saturday, say “Hi,” shop for something you want or need or eat something delicious at a small business. Thank you!
