Here’s a Chamber History Fact: In 1978 the Chamber supported moving the location of the Utah State Fair to the new Salt Palace. Reaction, however, was strongly against the move. 2002 is the 100th year the Utah State Fair has been at the State Fairgrounds.
You may have noticed a lot of things turning 100 this year such as the Rambler Automobile and Congress’ establishment of a permanent U.S. Census Office. It’s also the Salt Lake Chamber’s 100th Anniversary and on September 14th we are coming together for a Century Celebration Gala at the Little America. Stoel Rives and Questar sponsor the event. At the Gala we will honor over 100 of the people who gave extraordinary volunteer service to the Chamber. Call the Chamber now to reserve your space at 328-5050 or see us on the web at saltlakechamber.org.
