The Town of Palisade played host to the Chamber of Commerce mixer last Wednesday, January 18, inviting members to the public meeting room of the Civic Center at 341 W. 7th Street. The room usually hosts meetings of the Board of Trustees, the Planning Commission, the Tourism Advisory Board, and the Parks and Recreation Board, to name a few.
Caught hovering over the platter of brownies was Dan Adams, host, and Mayor Roger Granat, and Joe Archuleta.
