Bishop Chamber of Commerce News & Updates

From the Executive Director…

Hello Chamber Members and Friends,

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We’ve heard from many people that thought the parade on 12/3 was one of the best ever and the Railroad Express event at Laws Museum last Saturday was awesome!

We’re looking forward to a few more upcoming holiday festivities and we sure hope you enjoy this season as much as we do! Please remember to bookmark the events page on our website. And, be sure to let us know if you have an event to list or something special to include in our e-news. We’re happy to help promote our members’ projects!

Hope to see you out and about –

Hospice Holiday Happenings

Hospice of the Owens Valley is a local non-profit organization that offers options that maximize comfort and maintain dignity for loved ones with advanced life-limiting illness. Hospice treats the person instead of the disease; focuses on the whole family instead of just the individual; and emphasizes quality of life instead of its duration. Hospice care allows terminally ill individuals and their families to experience the end of life together in the comfort and security of a home setting. Our local hospice has several fundraising events coming up and we hope you’ll consider supporting:
