April showers bring…well, I’m not sure what, exactly, from the look of things out there! It’s been a rough one, for sure. But now that there is light at the end of the tunnel, let’s focus on some of the great things to come. Spring is a busy season here in Winchester, as well as for the Chamber.

 

Looking for a great networking opportunity and a chance to learn what’s happening at the Chamber? Join us on April 8th at noon for lunch at Lucia’s for the Chamber’s Annual Meeting. Meet your fellow board members, business owners and community members.

It’s our own little “State of the Union”…with Italian food! Contact the Chamber to register.

 

B.Y.O.C:

We promise to reschedule our “Buy Your Own Coffee” networking series. This casual, “pop-up” gathering is a great way to mix and mingle with both members and non-members. We will be promoting a new date shortly, so be on the lookout for an announcement with all the details.

 

In the spirit of supporting our community businesses…

PLEASE REMEMBER OUR WINCHESTER MERCHANTS AND DO YOUR BEST TO SHOP LOCAL WITH EVERY OPPORTUNITY. Let’s help make up some of the deficit from this winter by making the spring a banner season for our business owners. I can’t think of a better way to beat the winter blues than by pulling together as a community and lifting each other up with support.

 

Cheers to Spring!

Kim Miles
