Meeting – Fall 2014
The Chamber has received many inquiries regarding the tragedy that unfolded last week at the Cedarville Rancheria reservation. The good folks at the Cedarville Rancheria are not Chamber Tribal members. Nevertheless, the Chamber extends our heartfelt condolences for those lives lost-- and we express great sorrow over this act of violence in Indian Country.
We can all agree that violence is never an answer for disagreements and is happening way too frequently in today's society. Please join us in praying for the families of Cedarville Rancheria.
