Dear Fellow Members,

When I first began my term as President of our Chamber, I would have never envisioned that the end of my second term would find us in the midst of a national pandemic.  In two short years, so much has changed for both our Chamber and our community.  Our offices relocated to our present location at 675 Broadway.  And in spite of everything that has transpired over the past months, we were able to remain open - albeit remotely - so that we could continue to serve our businesses and provide valuable information to those in need of assistance.  It has been a very turbulent time for us all.  Some of our dearest members have lost their businesses and their livelihoods, while many others have had to adapt to new practices and standards.  Loss of income has had a dramatic impact on many of our long established businesses and friends. And as we have rallied for local support, we have gradually begun to see a re-opening of many of our shops.
