Sunrise Breakfast – 10/14/21 $1,000 donation to N.A.C.E.

A Message From Our President

The East Bethel Chamber enjoyed another great Sunrise Breakfast last week at Route 65 Pub & Grub! We heard from
Mayor Steve Voss, Senator Michelle Benson and Commissioner Julie Braastad. We were also honored to present several checks including a $1,000 check to N.A.C.E. and the East Bethel Booster Days.

I would like to invite all chamber members out to the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Hwy 65 Frontage Rd. on Friday,
October 29th at 10am. We’ll be meeting at 187th Ave/Viking Blvd for the ceremony. For November, rather than a formal meeting we’ll be getting together at the Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday, November 3rd from 6-9pm at the East Bethel Senior/Community Center 2241 221st Ave NE. Join us to show support for the business community.

If there is anything the chamber can do to help your business, please do not hesitate to reach out to us

East Bethel Chamber Members Come Up Big For Local Nonprofit! Over $50,000 Raised To Help Vets, First Responders and Their Families!

The last weekend of September you may have noticed a lot of activity in the area around Route 65 Pub & Grub and Emagine Theater. The Invisible Wounds Project held their annual Cruise For Troops weekend for the first time in the East Bethel area. The day started off with the 12th Annual Cruise For Troops, where cars, trucks and motorcycles of all years came out to show their patriotic support and participate in a cruise that traveled across northern Anoka County. A big thank you to Emagine Theaters for donating the space to host the cruise and to Advantage Construction for being the presenting sponsor.

After the cruise, Route 65 Pub & Grub was the place to be for live music! Arko Companies presented the United We Stand Music Festival, featuring Hairball! Also performing were One – Metallica Tribute Band, The Crown Jewels – a Tribute to Queen and Voice runner-up Chris Kroeze. The Invisible Wounds Project was founded by Russ Hanes with Northwoods Marketing Agency in 2019.

The mission of Invisible Wounds Project is to raise awareness and provide services to Minnesota’s military, first responders, front-line medical staff, corrections, dispatch, and their families, relating to mental health, PTSD and suicide issues. To learn more about the organization, visit or email
