The Rockford Chamber of Commerce could change the name of the bi-monthly After Hours events to Talk and Eat, which would be an apt description. Maybe talk and eat and enjoy an adult beverage. Anyway, the events are held every-other month at a Chamber member location, varied throughout the year to let members show off their facilities and products.

Reds on the River has been a popular venue with the beautiful Rogue River as the setting for outdoor seating and plenty of beverage choices to enjoy. The food was, of course, fantastic. After Hours are casual events, so people pretty much hang out and talk, sample some great appetizers or hors douvres and catch up on what is going on in each other’s lives. Each event ends with a drawing and announcements.

Membership to the Rockford Chamber of Commerce includes countless opportunities to network, such as the After Hours events, luncheons, Network Circle meetings, many committee options and annual events such as the Community EXPO.
