Happy New Year! We wish all of you a wonderful and prosperous New Year.
Thank you to all of you who participated in the Firefighter’s Recognition Breakfast last month. It was a great turnout, thank you for showing your support to the Firefighters and the Chamber. Thank you Dolce Bistro & Bakery for a great breakfast!
Laptop Xchange held a very nice Holiday Mixer that was well attended. The City was represented along with the Police Chief and fire Department representatives. Many businesses attended, it was a buzzing event! And as usual there were great door prizes including a DVD player. If you missed this event you missed a fun one!
Upon our post-holiday return to the Chamber office we had waiting for us some terrific news. Larry Martin is back at the Montclair Plaza, as Vice President, congratulations, Larry! He started on 12/24/14. Scott Lewis remains General Manager. I will be meeting with Larry very soon to welcome him back to Montclair, he says he is planning on being active again in the Chamber and the community. This is wonderful news! No doubt he will be very active with the upcoming renovation at the Plaza.
There are many wonderful activities coming up in 2015, we hope you will plan on attending many, if not all of them. Monthly Breakfast meetings will resume on January 8th with a speaker from the Gold Line to bring us all up to date on the exciting progress. On February 28th we will have the 4th Annual Murder Mystery Dinner Dance. We are excited about presenting this one, it will be at a new location, to be announced soon, negotiations are still in the works. March we will see the Spring Fling return, polish up your bowling balls and be ready to have some fun again this year. Looks like we will be expanding the event this year. April, if all goes well will bring a surprise, first time event. And so the year moves forward, more to come!
Do you have a business neighbor who is not a member of the Chamber? Have you spoken with them to see if they are interested in joining? If so let me know and I will pay them a visit. Then you both will have a free ad in the Chamber newsletter which goes out to about 400 people every month, these are local people who shop in Montclair. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to market your business and support your Chamber.
See you all at the Breakfast meeting on Thursday!
