Being active in local Community programs for many years I always found that May and June are really busy months. As in the past May and June are proving to be busy months for everyone.

For those interested, Sunday, May 21 is the Lions Street Fair in North Babylon on Deer Park Avenue. There will be many vendors, food, entertainment and rides for the children. The fair opens at noon and runs until 6 p.m. This year’s fair marks the 5th Anniversary of the fair. If you have never been to this fair you should make it a point not to miss this event.

On Monday, May 22, the Chamber will be hosting a “Network Night” at the North Babylon Buffalo Wild Wings. The event will start at 6:30 p.m. Appetizers will be provided by the Chamber and there is a Cash Bar open to all. Come and meet fellow Chamber members, mingle, exchange ideas and get to know each other.

On Wednesday, May 24, the North Babylon High School is hosting its Annual Scholarship night and the Chamber is proud to be presenting three graduating seniors Scholarships to help them in their future endeavors.

Please save the date and join us June 26 for our June General Meeting at Applebee’s. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. and will feature NY State Senator Phil Boyle as our speaker. Come listen to Senator Boyle who will update us on many topics as to what is going on in the district. Time will be provided for a Q & A after he speaks.
In addition, the June meeting is also the Chamber’s annual election night.

If you are interested in running for a position on the Board you must give our Election Chairperson, Shari Sugarman your name in writing of your intent to run by the end of the May meeting.

If you are interested in becoming more active within the Chamber, please let any of the Board Members know. We are always interested in new people and new ideas to help the Chamber grow and further support our local businesses.
The Board is also currently working on our future monthly meeting schedule. Keep any eye out for future notices. As soon as the times, places and speakers have been set we will be sending out notices and hope to see more of you at our meetings.

See you all on Monday, May 22 at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Yours in business,

Garrett P. Simulcik, President
