‘WAYMISH’ workshop coming
The Summit County Chamber of Commerce in Partnership with CMC’s Customized Business Services is offering an interactive workshop titled “Why Are You Making It so Hard for Me to Give You My Money? (WAYMISH for short). This workshop is intended for all businesses who deal with customers. If you’ve ever wondered how many customers your organization loses everyday — it may be more than you think. Sometimes a customer approaches your place of business, fully intending to buy something. Then, it happens … something frustrates the customer to the point that she changes her mind without spending a dime. The “it” is a WAYMISH, and two out of three times it results in the permanent loss of a customer — and you may not even be aware of it. Attend this important workshop on May 31, from 8:30-10:30 a.m. at CMC Breckenridge and find out how you can keep your customers. Please register before Thursday, May 30, by calling CMC at 453-6757. Chamber members $45 and non-members $55; light breakfast will be provided.

National Trails Day project
How often do you use trails in Summit County? Once a month? Twice a week? Three times a day? (Don’t we all wish?) If everyone in Summit County volunteered ONE DAY on a trail-maintenance project, Summit County would have the most bomber and amazing trails in Colorado! People from all over the nation will be out busting a move on a trail, begging for attention on National Trails Day. You don’t want to be the odd one out, do you? Join us on Saturday, June 8, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Frisco peninsula. We will start the day with a light breakfast and end the day with a lunch from Pug Ryan’s Steakhouse and Brewery. This is a collaborative project involving the Friends of the Dillon Ranger District, the Friends of the Eagles Nest Wilderness, the Summit Fat Tire Society, Maverick Sports Promotions and the U.S. Forest Service.
