More than 40 residents, local merchants enjoyed the Logan/Ute Lake Chamber of Commerce's kick-off dinner, silent auction on Feb. 27 at the Annex Bar and Grill in Logan.

More than 40 residents participated in the Logan/Ute Lake Chamber of Commerce's enchilada dinner, silent auction fundraiser on Feb. 27 at the Annex in Logan.

"Every little bit helps. Your support tonight is appreciated and will make such a difference," said Ashley Osborn, chamber director.

This dinner, silent auction is just one of many smaller events being planned to help raise awareness of the chamber's activities as well as fund future events, said Courtney Neece, chamber president.

Osborn said there are many new faces in the chamber; these events will also help to familiarize the community with the new chamber members. She said working on a direct communication basis with the community is one of the goals of the chamber.

"In essence we are rebuilding," Neece said. "During that time we want to introduce ourselves to the public."

Neece said having several smaller events will give the chamber a chance to interact not only with the public, but include the merchant businesses who are members of the chamber.

Osborn said Warren Frost, owner of the Annex Bar and Grill, donated the food and the building space for the event.

"We appreciate having the support of our local businesses," Osborn said.

Neece said events like the annual Fourth of July Fireworks, parade and Barbecue and Bean Feed are still planned. She said the chamber knows not everyone is in town during that holiday and holding other events gives residents a chance to attend.

Osborn said the chamber's promotion of Logan and Ute Lake helps to draw in people to the town. She said the Fourth of July Fireworks and Barbecue and Bean Feed are benefits for both residents and visitors.

"We want to hold events for everyone, not just out-of-towners," Neece said. "We want our residents to know we appreciate them too."
