Ferndale chamber, visitor center hope move will make them more accessible

The Ferndale Chamber of Commerce and the Ferndale Visitor’s Information Center have moved to the newly renovated Pioneer Pavilion Community Center, at 2007 Cherry Street, in Ferndale. The space was home to the Ferndale Public Library before it moved in Oct. 2014.

The Ferndale Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Information Center were previously at 5683 2nd Ave., in Ferndale.

“We are very excited to be moving to this location,” said Ann Cline,  executive director of the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce, in a press release. “It has been a long time in the making and I believe that it will be a great long-term partnership between the City and the Chamber. We are now able to be a key resource for all things Ferndale, whether you are a resident or a visitor.”

The Pioneer Pavilion Community Center is between the Nooksack River and Pioneer Park. The chamber and visitor’s center will benefit from being near Pioneer Park, Cline said, because they will be able to send visitors to the park and park visitors can stop by the chamber and visitor’s center or general information.

The central space at the Pioneer Pavilion Community Center is available to rent for public and private events. Rental includes tables and chairs for 100 guests and room for activities, the news release said.

The chamber and visitor’s center are having an open house from 2:30 to 6 p.m. on Aug. 6, with a ribbon cutting at 4 p.m.
