Welcome to 2017!

Today is the last Friday of 2016--not a moment too soon!  Saturday brings the end of a truly historic year.  It is quite possible that 2017 will be equally historic as well, and if so, we all hope that it is in the postive rather than the negative way.  Your Ironwood Chamber of Commerce has some very useful events coming up in January:  5 January, join us for a "Morning Brew" at Contrast Coffee, downtown Ironwood, from 8:00-9:00 am--meet other chamber members and Contrast Coffee Co. owner Adam Holroyd; 18 January is the annual Ironwood/Bessemer Chambers of Commerce Awards Banquet, which will be held at the Bessemer VFW, starting with a social hour at 5:00pm [get your registration form from the Ironwood Chamber or the Bessemer Chamber offices]; and the very next day, 19 January, will see the gathering of the Western U.P. Chamber Alliance at the new Cold Iron Brewing Co., corner of Lowell and Ayer Street, downtown Ironwood.  Chamber members are welcome to attend this meeting and enjoy the operational tour and special samples while meeting other Chamber members from around the Western Upper Peninsula.
