Home is not where you live, it’s where you belong. When you have an opportunity to meet people, develop relationships and acquaintances, your sense of belonging increases. These acquaintances can provide connections to other people, things to do, places to explore, ways to get involved.
BIG LIFE Connections is a program developed by the Truckee Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Town of Truckee designed to:
Connect with businesses and the people behind the business
Share Truckee’s character, culture, values — what it means to be a Truckee Local
