Why is Guthrie a great community to be a part of?
We both moved to Guthrie from California (Paul in 2015 and Daniel in 2018). We love Guthrie because it is a small town that is community-minded with a tremendous amount of community spirit. We have found it easier to make meaningful connections here than in big cities because it has an intimate feel. A town like this has allowed us to maximize our time doing what we love with those whom we love, and appreciate life’s smaller moments, which we tended to miss before we moved here.
Why is your company a part of the Chamber?
We are a part of the Chamber because it is a great way to cultivate relationships with people in the community, network with other local businesses, increase our visibility in the community, and take advantage of the Chamber’s promotional and marketing opportunities.

"I joined the Chamber to help bridge the gap between the business community, the City of Guthrie, organizations, our schools and neighbors because we are all invested. When we work together with the help of the Chamber, we thrive as a community. "
Menecca Gibbs, Owner of Cleveland & Co. Mercantile

"The Guthrie Chamber of Commerce is a great partner in the community. As an active Church, it is important to us to be connected to businesses and other organizations that value relationship within the community. The Chamber goes above and beyond to make sure everyone stays connected with weekly events and fun activities. We love being a part of the Chamber!"
Ronnie Fields, First Christian Church
"The Guthrie News Leader regularly partners with the chamber as our goals are the same: connect businesses to the community. We not only enjoy attending the events the chamber presents, but also co-sponsoring events together. We’ve met new customers, contacts and lifelong friends through the chamber and we consider them part of our team."
