TULALIP — “A Time of Giving” is the theme for the Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce’s Business Before Hours from 7-9 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 22, in the Canoes Cabaret Room of the Tulalip Resort Casino.
Chamber President and CEO Caldie Rogers summed up this event by quoting Mother Teresa:
“At the end of life, we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by, ‘I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me, I was homeless and you took me in.’ Hungry not only for bread, but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing, but naked for human dignity and respect. Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks, but homeless because of rejection.”
The Chamber will use this Business Before Hours to highlight its nonprofit members, including the American Cancer Society, Marysville American Legion Post 178, Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County, Goodwill, the Marysville Historical Society, the Salvation Army of Snohomish County, Soroptimist International of Marysville, the YMCA and the Marysville Community Food Bank.
Chamber members who call 360-659-7700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP will pay only $23. Non-members and those who pay at the door must pay $28.
