Snowflake/Taylor Chamber of Commerce Dinner & Auction

From spirited bidding on 40+ items and winning numbers in the Chinese Auction to getting their fill on smoked brisket, coleslaw, pasta salad, cowboy beans, rolls and Trapper pies, a great time was had by all who attended this year’s Auction and Dinner fundraiser for the chamber. 
We appreciate everyone who donated auction items and all those who attended our event; your support is invaluable.
Our thanks go out to Dan Turley, our live auctioneer; Royce Kincanon, Mr. Music Karaoke and DJ Services, who provided music; and our Board and Ambassadors.

Snowflake Taylor Chamber of Commerce Awards Scholarships

The Snowflake Taylor Chamber of Commerce recently awarded two $500 scholarships to Snowflake High School seniors, Tyree Hancock and Taylor Lopez.

Interested seniors were asked to submit an application and essay describing their pursuit of a future career path, the next steps toward their success in that field, and how the assistance would impact their plans. Tyree and Taylor were chosen from 10 applications submitted.

The Chamber’s scholarship fund was started to support students who have been working toward their future profession. The purpose of the Chamber scholarship fund is to identify students who have demonstrated initiative in pursuing their post high school vocation and to support them in the pursuit of their passion.

This was the first year for the scholarship program; the Chamber will be continuing the program annually. All scholarship funds are derived from local Chamber member businesses through various Chamber events.











Performers included:

  • Dance Amour
  • High Country Barbershop Chorus
  • Canyon Creek Performing Arts
  • Snowflake High School Madrigals
  • Britten Shirley, Trick Roper
  • Calvary Chapel Worship Band
  • John Kay and David Peterson

Snowflake Town Lighting

Vice Mayor Kerry Ballard did the countdown and turning on of the lights at this year’s town lighting event held November 30. Kicking off Santa’s arrival on the fire truck was a dance performance by a group from Dance Amour.

Santa and Mrs. Claus, along with two of their elves, stayed cozy in the Freeman home as kids divulged their wish lists for Christmas.

Local businesses and organizations prepared and served hot cocoa or cider and donated cookies to event goers as they strolled between the two entertainment areas or headed over to view the nativity displays in the Social Hall.

A new addition to the event was the Ugly Sweater Contest. Judging the event was Chamber Board Member Tyler Rausch. Marcus Marshall was the winner.

We wish to thank the businesses, entertainers, Santa and Mrs. Clause, and those who donated cookies for helping us make this a great event.
