Chamber Briefs
Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Ever wonder how those movie stars look so good? With a little help from their friend AART, Inc………..

…………..Yes, right here in little ole Carson City is the manufacturer of “innovative medical products.” Translated that means aesthetic, reconstructive and therapeutic devices used by plastic surgeons. Winston A. Andrews is proud of his team that develops, manufactures and markets body contouring implants, facial implants, and custom implants to improve the quality of life for its customers. Andrews says if you want the bootie of Jennifer Lopez, his implant may be the one your plastic surgeon will use. He recently moved his plant from Reno to Arrowhead Drive to be closer to his home here in Carson City. We welcome this innovative manufacturer to Chamber membership.

Mixer at Red’s tomorrow night…….

…………if you don’t have this calendared, do it right now. Red’s mixers are always a culinary treat……and you never know what will be coming out of the kitchen. We’ll catch up with each other after the summer hiatus on the informal outdoor patio. Meet new members and make new contacts.

What’s October without an Oktoberfest?..........

………………From the man who brought you the successful Food Truck Festival at the Casino Fandango, Court Cardinal says it’s time to clink beer glasses and enjoy typical Bavarian foods as you enjoy the toe-tapping live music that might just get you out of your seat to do the polka. Prost to your family, neighbors, friends and those who will be sitting beside you. This traditional Oktoberfest at the Casino Fandango will be held in the front parking lot between 11 am-9 pm on Saturday, October 4. It’s a free event – you just buy the food and drinks! We’re planning to be there. (poster)

Many children seeking foster parents……..…

…….according to the State of Nevada Division of Child and Family Services. To learn more on how you can become a licensed foster parent with the State of Nevada, please call 1-888-423-2659, or go to

Smoky skies ahead with controlled burn……

………….don’t call 911 to report smoky skies. The Nevada Division of Forestry is conducting a controlled burn in the Fallon area around Carson Lake either Wednesday or Thursday, winds permitting. Flyer
