Since being awarded a $35,000 grant from Lane County to support and boost tourism in the area, The McKenzie River Chamber of Commerce has been considering a broad array of proposals from local businesses and organizations. With such a lot of worthwhile causes, these were not easy decisions, but it is hoped that the scope and variety of these fund allocations will make a significant positive impact in our area.
