The Cambridge Commercial Club was busy and productive in 2019. 2020 had been interesting for all of us. So now we are working on our 2021 Goals. They are even bigger and better.
As you have seen the Cambridge Commercial Club is an active organization that is promoting our local businesses and working hard to bring outside dollars into our economy. You do not have to be a business owner to participate in this organization. If you have desire to volunteer in this community, please become a member.
• Hells Canyon Days – The Cambridge Commercial Club, Cambridge Rodeo Association and Washington County Fair Board are joining forces to host the 3rd Annual Hells Canyon Jam, Saturday, June 5th, 2021. The Hells Canyon Jam concert was added to the Hells Canyon Days events in hopes that we could create a new excitement and encourage more people to attend all the different happenings over the annual 2-day event. We also hoped that we could bring more outside dollars into our community. It has done exactly that. The Cambridge Rodeo Arena proved to be a perfect venue. So far, appropriate logistics have been put into place and executed seamlessly. We had a great group of volunteers that ensured our event has been safe, well-staffed, and family-friendly each year. The Hells Canyon Jam has been well received by the community. In 2019, the Hells Canyon Jam’s net profit was a little over $8000, $4200 was given to the Rodeo Association which helped them complete an arena project. The 2021 Hells Canyon Jam is going to require more volunteers, more sponsorships, and more energy so it will be as successful as the past concerts have been. We not only need you to become a member of the Cambridge Commercial Club, but we also need you to show up to meetings and volunteer your skills.
• Scholarships – The Commercial Club has awarded scholarships to Cambridge High School seniors for many years. We hope to increase the dollar amount we award and award more scholarships in 2021. If you want to donate money specifically for scholarships, please let us know. If you want to help us grow this program, please volunteer to help. • Marketing - Check out the Cambridge Commercial Club website that was created in 2020 and our growing Facebook and Instagram accounts.
