The Little Falls Area Chamber of Commerce recently published its 2014 Membership Directory. This directory serves as an easy reference for the community to do business locally as well as promoting member-to-member business opportunities. If you would like a free copy, stop by the Chamber office in the historic Cass Gilbert Depot.
The historic Cass Gilbert Depot is a resource for the community and is available for rent to the public. The Depot has been host to not only business meetings, but social events such as birthday parties, groom’s dinners, baby and bridal showers and even weddings. The room seats 40 comfortably and up to 70 for social settings. Rental fees apply. Contact the Chamber at (320) 632-5155 for open dates.
