In April 1920 a small group of local business leaders met and the Golden Chamber of Commerce was born. While we donâ€™t know the exact date of our anniversary, we do have some information in regards to how we started and the leadership of Herman Coors, Manager of Coors Porcelain, who was the first president of the Chamber.
To honor our â€śCentury of Serviceâ€ť to the Golden Community and the businesses that have built the Golden Chamber, we are celebrating all year long! Join us at the following events:
April 14thÂ â€“ VIBE@Five Happy Hour at MillerCoors in honor of our founding in April by Herman Coors
May â€“ Birthday Party luncheon event
November â€“ End of Year Roaring 20â€™s Gala Event
We are also launching a â€ś100 for 100 Campaignâ€ť!
This goal of the campaign is to solicit donations of $100 from area businesses and individuals to create the John Tracy Memorial Scholarship for Golden area high school seniors. Our hope is to award three scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each.
John Tracy was an important figure in the Golden community and loved by so many. He was a dedicated Ambassador of the Golden Chamber of Commerce and we are honored to have worked along side him for so many years. Many business owners here in Golden were welcomed by John Tracy during their Ribbon Cutting and Grand Openings.
