It’s hard to
believe that we are headed into holiday season, but it’s true. I think we might
be tricked by the occasional 70 degree day here and there…
said, Thanksgiving is right around the corner so I’d like to take this
opportunity to express my gratitude for a few things. I’d like to thank my
fellow board members who have stepped up to the plate this past year and lent
their time, energy and expertise in a number of areas. There have been several
issues that have surfaced throughout the year where the Chamber has rightfully
stepped in to be the voice for the business community. Whether it’s parking changes, zoning
initiatives or environmental causes, my fellow board members can always be
relied upon to step up and contribute when and where it counts.
definition of a strong organizational board truly lies within its members: when volunteers come together for a cause and
lend their respective skills, their profound effort enables us to come out stronger
on the other side. Together we have initiated
some lofty projects as well as lobbied for certain causes and hopefully we will
leave a strong legacy which will last well beyond this calendar year.
To all of
you who raised your hand and volunteered, and continue to do so when asked, as
your President, I thank you.
