President’s Report – November 2021
The season of gratefulness is upon us! November is a time to reflect and be thankful for the people we cherish and the daily life we are fortunate to live. Every day in November, let’s make a conscious effort to stop and think about just ONE thing we are thankful for… it may be your family, friends, business or it may be the car that takes you from point A to point B. There is so much joy in being thankful!
I’m so excited to announce our new incoming Board Members: Brittany Lewis, Central Bank; Rory Shwartz, Berkshire Hathaway; Dr. Robyn Lawrence, Get Well Family Chiropractic; and Scott Palermo, A Skeetz Production. They will serve a 3 year term, starting January 2022.
As we near the end of 2021, please be sure to stop by and bring new un-wrapped toys to the chamber office for our Holiday drive. I know we’re all excited about the holidays, let’s include those in our community that may be struggling during this time of the year.

As we look forward to our Thanksgiving meals gathered together with family and friends, let’s remember this quote by William Arthur Ward, “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”
