Greetings Chamber members,

It’s hard to believe the first day of school is just a week away. Before you know it, the weather will be changing, football will be everywhere, and the year will be coming to an end. It’s a great time to evaluate the year and ask yourself whether you are taking advantage of all that your chamber membership has to offer. Have you made it to any networking events yet this year? If not, there’s still time! Check out the chamber’s website for a list of events. I know fall is a very busy time for everyone, but I hope you can take an evening to relax and join us for our chamber membership appreciation barbeque on Thurs- day, September 26, 2019. It will be an evening of fun, great food/drinks, and gifts! Stop by for as long or short as you can.

We have recently lost board members Mary Gailley and Dave Shepard, both of whom relocated for employment purposes. I would like to thank each of them for their dedicated service and commitment to the chamber board. We much appreciate your past efforts and wish you the very best of luck on your new adventure! On that note, you will soon be receiving your ballots to nominate board members for the upcoming year. Service on the chamber board is rewarding, educational, and a great way to give back to the community and get to know other business owners. This coming year, we will likely be looking for upwards of seven new board members. Start thinking about who you might nominate!

I wish everyone a smooth transition back to the school year and I hope to see you all at the barbeque on September 26th.

Andrew J. Myers
