COMMUNITY PROFILE

Though small and seemingly quiet, our little community often bustles with activity. One just needs to know where to look. A great place to first inquire is with our community calendar.  

Demographics are fun to review. While they do not define who we are, they do help us understand more about where we live. Take time to consider what it means to have so much with so few.

Our rich history intertwines with regional and national sagas; it is impacted by war, flood, and drought, as well as prosperity, innovation, and abundance. It is worthy of study and respect.

ANNUAL CHAMBER EVENTS

February

Every year the local business community comes together to celebrate its successes. It is a warm atmosphere in the cold winter - an excuse to laugh, to eat, and to cherish one another.

August

Decades worth of Apple Day Queens have represented our little community and its businesses in parades, at grand openings, and during our annual harvest festival.

October

Miles of orchards and train-loads of apples led to harvest. Harvest led to rodeos, baseball games, and dances. Rodeos, baseball games, and dances led to our annual Apple Day festival.

December

Horse-drawn carriage rides. Hot chocolate. S'mores. Santa. When in the country these holiday traditions are somehow more special, more wonderful, more... Well, come and see for yourself.

COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT

Do not let our small population fool you: the people of Penrose are a talented bunch! Indeed they have been recognized for their professional and personal achievements. We are proud!

Photographs. They fill boxes in our homes and albums in our phones. Why? Because they bring joy. They remind us of fun times, of beautiful sights, and of forgotten memories. 

We are a blessed generation. One blessing in particular is that we can record our experiences - videos that help us express ourselves, gain support for our passions, and inform the future.

Everyone wants to tell their story. Some share even if no one is listening, while others wait for a willing audience. By taking time to both share and listen, we are all drawn closer.
