Howard Garthwait & Rick Huston

The Happy Camp Chamber of Commerce, for many years, met for the monthly evening meeting the first Tuesday evening of each month at the Lion's Hall down at the end of Parkway at the River Park Area - - -but of course, there was only blackberry bushes in an old dump site in that place back then!! The Chamber also had no office. There really wasn't the need for one. We had brochures and information at Evan's Mercantile, and at Siskiyou House at different times.

The Chamber had a Job & Career Center when the Mill Closed at the Happy Camp Mini-Mall but that was mostly for helping people start businesses and find employment. Elizabeth "Liz" Ramos Cothren was the President at that time and from her Career Business she had given workshops on everything from Business Plans to how to interview for a employment and shared her expertise with community members. Workshops that were well attended were held at the Veterans Of Foreign Wars Hall because the office in the Mini-Mall was too small for the enrollment.
