North Babylon Chamber of Commerce Booth at the Street Fair

Dear Fellow Resident, Civic Leader and Business Owner,

I would like to introduce myself; my name is Garrett Simulcik and I have been a resident of North Babylon since 1981 and the owner of Cruise Planners/American Express Travel Agency, also located in North Babylon.

Why Don’t We Have a North Babylon Chamber of Commerce?

As a resident, Civic Leader and Business Owner in North Babylon I have recently questioned that we did not have a Chamber of Commerce in North Babylon. With the large number of business owners, active Civic Organizations and concerned residents, I find this puzzling. Most of the other areas that make up the Town of Babylon, including Copiague, Lindenhurst, Farmingdale and the Village of Babylon have functioning Chambers, some with less businesses per square mile, so why not North Babylon?
The Benefits of Joining a Chamber

A Chamber of Commerce comprised of local businesses, civic leaders, individuals and residents working together can improve the community’s economy and quality of life, helping businesses prosper and grow, while increasing job opportunities and encouraging expansion and development of all segments of the entire community.

Let’s Build One Together

We should act. Such an organization can benefit everyone in North Babylon and would certainly benefit every Business owner. I have reached out to a few individuals, and like myself, they agree that North Babylon should have its very own Chamber of Commerce.

If you have an interest or know of others that may be interested, please attend our general meetings on the last Monday of each month. If you are ready and excited to join us, please go here to join the Chamber directly online or call me at (631) 983-4283 to receive an application.

I look forward to your anticipated enthusiasm.

Yours truly,
Garett P. Simulcik
