Our 94th Annual Chamber Banquet definitely was a “Time to Shine.” Thank you again to our Chamber staff and to everyone who helped from the beginning to the end to make this a very successful event. I would also like to congratulate all of our award winners. We are very happy and proud of you and your accomplishments individually, in your businesses, and in our community.

The last few months of the year are a busy time for all of us, including the Chamber. There are many exciting upcoming activities including iChamberShop (shop local campaign from mid-October – mid-December), Shop Local Marketplace and Vendor Fair (shop local luncheon on November 14th), Christmas on the Square (December 6th), and our Christmas Mixer (December 9th). I encourage you and your business to participate in upcoming Chamber events and to see the Chamber’s website or contact the Chamber directly for more information about these and many other activities.

In closing, and because November reminds us to count our blessings and be thankful, I would like to leave you with a quote from Bil Keane, the creator of ‘Family Circus’ – “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
