Orofino Commercial Club was formed in 1914 and over the years involved a number of community leaders including Sampson Snyder, Theodore Fohl, Ralph Shriver, Ket Hanson, Francis Portfors, Howard Bobbitt and Walter Sewell. Over the years, they met in various locations, but seemed always to have dinner at the Helgeson prior to their business meeting.
Sometime between 1937 and the end of World War II, it became the Orofino Chamber of Commerce.
