Chamber Celebrates 50 Years

The Carefree Cave Creek Chamber of Commerce will reach a major milestone this month – 50 years of serving area businesses and residents.

“In order to look forward and chart a course for our future, I think we need to reflect on our past,” says Jennifer McGirr, National Bank of Arizona and Chamber board president. “And what an amazing 50 years of growth our community has undergone.”

In 1965, neither Carefree nor Cave Creek were incorporated as towns yet, but there was a lot of vision and a sense of community, says McGirr.

“Over the past 50 years the players have changed but I believe the voice has stayed the same,” she says. “How do we keep our serene corner of the world; while promoting tourism and growth for our local businesses? Reach out, shop local, and become involved! It will come back to you tenfold.”

The Chamber will celebrate its anniversary Thursday, March 26, at 8am, at Harold’s Corral. Guests will enjoy a breakfast buffet. The event will also honor the Business of the Year, Volunteer of the Year and other special guests. The cost is $18.50 per person. RSVP by March 20. For more information, call 480.488.3363 or visit
