— The Lights on Craft Fair featured a number of local businesses selling a variety of handmade products, including canned goods, natural soaps, felted apparel, jewelry, baskets and candles.

Mary Ann Bowers, who was representing her shop — Poiema — with a wide selection of all natural handmade soaps, said that the fees paid by all the participating vendors, as well as the proceeds from a silent auction, would go to the North Creek Business Alliance. It is this group of dedicated business owners who have been working hard to promote the community and encourage business growth.

Pat Hamilton, the executive director of the Gore Mountain Region Chamber of Commerce, said the goal of the Winter Expo was to get the word out about how many events and activities are available during the winter months. She stressed that their goal is to promote the entire Gore Mountain Region, not just North Creek. Chamber officials plan on holding another business expo in May because spring and summer bring a new venue of events and activities.
