  Chamber news
  By Brandon Shaw
  Financial advisor with Edward Jones

   The Eastern Plains Chamber of Commerce held its monthly meeting Sept. 5. The guest speakers for the month were from the El Paso County Colorado School District 49 Falcon zone leadership team.
   The chamber was privileged to hear presentations from the principals of all the schools in the Falcon zone. Each principal presented on what they are most proud of regarding their school’s accomplishments and the unique programs they offer. For example, Brian, the executive principal for Firebird Nation, showed the chamber the news channel the students create to present the schools daily news; and Cheryl DeGeorge gave a wonderful presentation on the medical programs that allow her students to gain useful experience in working in an ambulance and nursing. These examples were just a small amount of the great programs and work the principals and the Falcon zone has to offer.
   
   The chamber and I would like to give a big thank you to Cheryl DeGeorge, Falcon High School principal; Brian Smith, the Firebird Nation executive principal; Mandy Maranville, the Bennett Ranch Elementary principal; Sheehan Freeman-Todd, the Meridian Ranch principal; Michael Roth, the Falcon elementary principal; Angela Rose, the Woodmen Hills principal; and Sue Holmes, the Falcon zone leader.
   
   If you or your organization would like to be part of the Eastern Plains Chamber or you would like to be a speaker at an upcoming meeting, contact us at board@easternplainschamber.com.
   
   The Eastern plains Chamber of Commerce meets the first Wednesday of each month, from 7 to 8:30 a.m. at Grace Community Church, 9475 Grace Church View in Falcon.

  Happy dog grooming with Linda
  By Leslie Sheley

   Linda Quist has been a long time resident of Falcon, and has been in the dog grooming business in Falcon for 15 years, with 30 years of grooming experience. In college, she worked as a dog bather and loved it, so after she received a degree in geology, she went back to school to become a dog groomer.
   
   Quist said part of her success as a groomer is about the importance of having a relationship where owners trust the groomers and the dogs are happy to come in. “My biggest pride is when the anxious ones come in after two or three times, and they are happy and their tails are wagging,” said Quist, who has four dogs of her own.
   
   Linda’s Professional Pet Grooming is three miles from Safeway, located in a quiet, safe and relaxing environment. There is an area where owners can walk their dogs and the dogs can do their business. Quist said she is detail-oriented and caters to each client and their pets’ needs. They don’t rush the dogs through, if they need a break they get one.
   
   Quist also participates in horse triathlons at the American Eventing Championship. There are three phases of the triathlon; the dressage, which is designed to show control and the relationship the rider has with the horse; cross country jumping, which shows stamina, endurance and bravery; and stadium jumping, which shows rider control over the horse and determines the level of the horse’s stamina. Quist won all three, which is quite the feat!
   
   Her business has been a feat as well. “We will do everything we can to work with and around your schedule, and I’m more than happy to give people tours and show them around,” Quist said. “Call me and let’s talk, phone calls are so much more personal; and this is a personal business.” Her phone number is 719-661-1809; she is located at 3815 Pheasant Lane in Falcon.
