Greetings Chamber Members and Friends!
During this season of thanks, we are extremely grateful for the support this community has given the Chamber over the last year and are looking forward to working together in the new year toward continually making this a strong vibrant community to live, work, play and raise a family. Thank you for all you do in contributing to these efforts!
The FIS Alpine World Cup at Killington World Cup, once again, a phenomenal event bringing close to 40,000 people to the mountain and our region.  Hundreds of people help make this event happen and it takes months to prepare.  THANK YOU to the Town of Killington, Killington Resort staff, volunteers, vendors, sponsors, athletes, coaches and first responders who are responsible for bringing this international event to our region.
The Real Rutland Regional Marketing Campaign combined with the Vermont Department of Tourism & Marketing Stay to Stay Program and Red Carpet Concierge Program are continuing to work to bring new families and individuals to our region.  To date we can count 52 people, making up 22 families have relocated from Arizona, Florida, Colorado, Massachusetts, Oregon, Washington and more!  This is necessary work to fill vacancies at local employers and to continue to grow our economy.  We are grateful to all the new residents and all the volunteers who have helped us achieve success thus far. 

Please take time out to enjoy this holiday season, remembering the important people in your life and having a sense of gratitude for everything we are thankful for. Happy Holidays!
