The Anza Chamber of Commerce is opening its doors to businesses from Idyllwild, Mountain Center, Garner Valley and Aguanga.
“Our bylaws limited our boundaries to Anza. Even Aguanga, our sister city, wasn’t included,” said Anza Chamber President Robyn Garrison. Their bylaws were originally written in the 1960s, she said.
During the review, they decided to embrace the rest of the Hill in addition to the original intent to reach out to Aguanga. The revision will re-do all of their bylaws, according to Garrison.
“We wanted to give other businesses the opportunity to participate in our events,” she stated. “So many of us go to Idyllwild on the weekend; the movies and food, we show up there.”
While none of the local businesses have accepted the invitation yet, Garrison has visited town and walked into many businesses to tell them about the Anza Business Expo planned from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8 in the Anza Community Hall.
Anyone interested in the 3rd Annual Business Expo may contact Tish Clark at 951-763-4225.
The Idyllwild Chamber of Commerce folded in 2013 due to legal challenges.
