Welcome to the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce

Since 1982, the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce's mission of strengthening, promoting and serving its member businesses has positively benefited the entire region and local quality of life. The Angel Fire Chamber represents over 200 members who employ approximately 1,000 workers who account for millions of dollars in economic impact in Angel Fire and the surrounding areas of Northern New Mexico. This is accomplished without tax dollars, as the Angel Fire Chamber is supported strictly by membership revenues. Serving as a unified voice, the Chamber advocates for pro-business issues affecting member businesses on the local, state, and national levels.

We are proud to feature a news or one of our member businesses in the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce's exclusive "I Know Jo" Campaign. This campaign started as a way for our Executive Director, Jo Mixon, to get to know the membership. It has, over the past three years, become one of the favorite news/advertising events in Angel Fire. The catch phrase being, "I Know Jo, do you?" She visits a different Chamber member to learn about their business. She then shares information in a story she writes for our Weekly Chamber Monday Memo e-Blast. This e-Blast is sent out to thousands of people on our mailing list. She also posts the story on our Face Book page, it is picked up weekly by AngeFireNewMexico.com and we feature it here on the homepage of our website.i

"I Know Jo, do you?"

Jo with Brent and Tammy Dunn/Owners

 

 

Living a healthy family oriented- lifestyle is the message I got from my visit with Brent and Tammy Dunn. And it's the message they wish to portray in their business, too.  Brent said, “Tammy and I want everyone in Angel Fire to know that although we are the new guys on the block, we are truly invested in seeing this town grow and thrive.  The reason we moved here was the unbelievable beauty, not only outdoors, but in the people that fill this valley.  We look forward to growing and becoming a part of this wonderful community.” And they have definitely begun that journey!

 

The Dunn’s purchased Mountain Sports last year. They are a full retail store offering Camping Gear, Clothing, Footwear, Fishing Gear, Tennis Gear, Golf Gear, Sporting Goods, Skis, Snowboards, and Winter Outerwear.  Plus they are also a full rental shop with: Rental Skis, Rental Snowboards, and Rental Bikes. Their focus is on giving excellent customer service to all of our customers. They listen to their customers and try to carry what promotes the customers activities. For example, the pickleball group asked for pickleball equipment, so they now stock it.

 

This year they started the RoadRunner Couch to 5K Walk/Run program designed to help beginners and those who haven’t run in a while prepare to “Conquer the Mountain!” I asked if they had always been runners. Brent answered, “No, we started running about 3 years ago.  It started as more of a macho guy challenge to work out at the gym for me and eventually became something that we do as a family nearly every day of the week.” Tammy added, “The idea of the RoadRunner group really was born out of our desire to find a way to help Mountain Sports promote healthy living and be something that related to our business.  Although we did most of our training in Texas as a family, we learned through others the power of having a group that helps support and encourage each other and wanted to bring that to the Angel Fire running community.” This group started May 15, 2014 and they continue to meet every Thursday morning at 7:30 am.  This running club is open to all ages and abilities, free of cost.  Their focus is on strengthening their bodies, while strengthening their sense of community.  The group is having a charity fundraiser 5k race this Thursday morning, July 24. It will end with the first ever Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce Business Before Hours from 8:00 am to 9:00 am and continue on throughout the morning with lots of fun activities. They told me the race goody bags are worth twice as much as the registration fee! And the race is open to the public. Sign up now at Mountain Sports and we will see you there!

The Dunn’s have owned vacation properties in Angel Fire for many years prior to their permanent move in May 2013. Tammy is a native Texan. Brent grew up in mostly in New Mexico. They are however, high school sweethearts. Brent’s family made the best move of his life when they moved him to Texas in high school. It was there he met Tammy. They married after college. Brent went into the field of Computer Sciences. He worked seven years for Cessna. Then went on to own, co-own and start up various online companies from GroceryWorks.com to a Digital Witness Security business. Tammy majored in Music Education, become an educator then principal in the Kansas School system. She also went back to receive her Masters in Education. Being from that genre, she was adamant that the school system they moved their children into must be top notch. She says the quality and relationship of the teachers to the kids they have found in the Moreno Valley is excellent! Tammy said to me, “I am a lucky girl. I am lucky to have Brent, our children Sarah and Colin, and I am lucky to wake up to this incredible, marvelous beauty every day!”
