JUNE 2018 – FROM THE PRESIDENT

Summer is upon us and it’s time for everyone to enjoy the fine weather.   The Board of Directors has decided not to hold any meetings for the months of July and August.  The next meeting will be on Monday, September 24, at 7 p.m. at Nonna Bella’s.   The Speaker will be George Andriopoulous of Lanuchpad Five One Six to speak about ways businesses can grow and prosper using varying marketing techniques and Social Media.

Our last meeting, before we take a break for the summer is scheduled for Monday, June 25 at Nonna Bella’s will feature Babylon Town Councilman Anthony Manetta.  In addition, there will be an update on the Pathmark Shopping Plaza.  What is proposed to be built on the site.  This is important for every member of our community, business and residences alike.

Chamber renewals are due by July 1.  You should have received your renewal in the mail.  The Board switched the renewal date to run from July 1 to June 30 of each year rather than having renewals come up on a monthly basis.  The former process was becoming a huge   headache and an accounting problem.

Keep in mind that the Chamber will be sponsoring its Third Annual Street Fair in October.  It will be held on Sunday, October 7 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. (Rain or Shine).  If you are a member of the Chamber, the registration  fee is only $50 (half price) to secure a spot.   This is a great way to promote your business in and around the Community and the proceeds go to building a better and stronger Chamber.

Wishing everyone a safe and enjoyable summer and hope to see everyone in the fall.

Yours in business,

Garrett P. Simulcik, Sr.
