Chamber members, please join us Thursday, October 11th from 5 – 7 p.m. at Hutchinson Family Dentistry as they host Chamber Business After Hours! The new business was just established in 2012, and includes a team of dentists: Dr. David Mach, Dr. Steven Flinn, and Dr. Chuck Neufeld. They have renovated the former Hutchinson Leader building at 36 Washington Avenue into a modern-day dental office, with lots of historic appeal. This building area, built in 1883 as a stable, has served as an auto repair facility, a steam laundry, Sears, and now a state-of-the-art dental office. Come and see the features of the new building, as well as meet the staff, and enjoy some fellowship!
