Volunteers Needed – Huntsman World Senior Games

Volunteer and Make a Difference
Volunteers are the life-blood of the Huntsman World Senior Games. For the past thirty-two years they have been an integral part of the athlete experience.
“Each October a volunteer workforce of 2,500+ men and women is needed to accomplish the lofty goal of providing a memorable experience for over 11,000 participants who come to compete,” said Jeff Harding, Huntsman World Senior Games director of operations. “The athletes are quick to express their appreciation to volunteers and many long-lasting friendships have been forged throughout the years.”
Volunteer assignments range from delivering fruit to greeting athletes as they arrive to check in. We need volunteers to work in the gift shop, transport athletes to and from their competition venues, answer questions at the information desk, usher the opening ceremonies, and provide medical support at venues. We also need people to check athletes in at sporting venues, assemble athlete welcome bags, run each sport’s social and much, much more.
If you would like to be part of the largest annual multi-sport event in the world for people 50 and over, then go to www.seniorgames.net/volunteer and sign-up.
Send an email to volunteer@seniorgames.net or call the Games’ office at 435-674-0550 with any questions.

Main Street Cafe Honored as Hurricane Valley 2017 Small Business of the Year

Main Street Cafe
Small Business of the Year Award
Sponsored by Davis Farmers Market

When brothers Enrique and Miguel Tinoco were 15 and 17 years old respectively, their plan was to move to California, work two years, save money, and then return to their beloved Mexico. Once back in Mexico they could then get the good education they desired and follow their dreams. In their two working years, the brothers advanced from dishwashers and bus boys up to cooks in great restaurants. They believed their opportunities in the United States were far greater, so they stayed in California restaurants.

Enrique had advanced to managing an Italian restaurant in Long Beach by the time he was 20. The restaurant owner saw the talent in Enrique and sent him to visit and learn from other chefs in notable Italian restaurants. Eleven years cooking and learning from the best Italian chefs in California built Enrique’s confidence. His experience earned him a job offer he almost took as a chef at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. However, a Nevada friend convinced Enrique that a chef with his talent should open and benefit from his own restaurant, so Enrique, Miguel and families left California for an adventure in Las Vegas. Working side by side, they opened Tinoco Bistro in Las Vegas in 1998. For 17 years their business grew, relocating three times for larger spaces to accommodate their growing clientele.

Over the years they found the Las Vegas market was consistently too busy. The brothers yearned to relocate to a calmer atmosphere, where they could work and live and take an occasional day off. In February 2016 they found that place in Hurricane. Main Street Café was the perfect place and again both families relocated to open up their new shop.

Main Street Café is jointly owned by the Tinoco brothers, who also share the cooking responsibilities. Their specialty dishes are pasta and seafood, but their customer favorites are their outside-cooked barbeque grilled burgers.
The Tinoco’s are happy in Hurricane and appreciate the way people of the community have embraced and supported them. Their staff and regular customers (both locals and returning tourists) have become “like family” to them. The Tinoco’s are grateful this venture has turned out so well and are honored to be the Small Business of the Year for 2017.

Stout Home Furnishings Honored as HVCC February 2018 Member of the Month

The Hurricane Valley Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce Stout Home Furnishings as the February 2018 Business Member of the Month.

Selected for their contribution of time, energy and resources to the Hurricane Valley community, Stout Home Furnishings additionally enjoys a stellar reputation as a business who deals honestly and fairly with their customers and stands behind their product. The good people and staff at Stout Home Furnishings provides a comfortable shopping experience with friendly, courteous, customer service. The Hurricane Valley Chamber of Commerce also recognizes Stout Home Furnishings for their continued support and monetary contributions to many community organizations, events and charities. Locally owned and operated, the business has been a positive economic contributor for over 50 years.

In 1963, brothers Dell and Boyd Stout bought the established home center, Petty Mercantile, from Charles Graff and later changed the name to Stout’s. For four generations, the vision has been to give the community a trusted family-operated furniture store that they can count on to make their house a home.

In 1975 the Stout’s trucks got bigger and better, and the brothers made sure they were always able to get the best furniture into the hands of their customers at all costs!

After many years of experience in the furniture and appliance business, Steve Stout, Boyd’s son, took over management of the operation. He kept it successful through maintaining his father’s principles and bringing new ideas to the store. When Steve became very ill, his son Jed took over managing the business. Steve’s health returned, and he remains active in the business as the President and CEO, while Jed continues to manage the day-to-day operations.
The Stout family has proudly furnished thousands of Hurricane, St. George, and surrounding area homes and they continue to believe in building great relations with their customers.

The Hurricane Valley Chamber of Commerce congratulations Stout Home Furnishings on their many years of success and will honor them at the HVCC luncheon meeting, held at the Hurricane Community Center, 63 S. 100 W., on Thursday, Feb. 15th, 2018

The Gift Giver

Another great gift idea!

The Gift Giver

Written by Jacob Haslem & Nicholas Allen

The Gift Giver is a children’s story book about the origins of the man we have come to know as Santa Claus, written and developed by Jacob Haslem and Nicholas Allen. Jacob Haslem came up with the idea during the Christmas season in 2013 while trying to teach his 4-year old son about the true meaning of Christmas.

“I grew up believing in Santa Claus for a long time. I loved the wonder that surrounded a man with such a big heart whose singular purpose, it seemed, was to award children with gifts for being good people. That is a just cause. I don’t believe the two have to be at odds. In defining Santa Claus’ motives for giving gifts, and in telling his origin story, we completely redefine the way we think of him. In delving into who Saint Nick really was, we came to the conclusion that he must have been close to what we wanted to portray him to be in the book: selfless, humble, and ever-grateful for all that God had given him; never wanting praise or attention, but working, rather, to help people remember and celebrate the Savior.” Jacob Haslem
The Gift Giver is a book to help families teach their children the true meaning of Christmas without taking away from the “magic and wonder” of the holiday, and to do it in a fun and enticing way.

Jacob Haslem, book author and Active Pro Pest Control owner, is a Hurricane Valley resident and HVCC member.
