Chairwoman’s Message
I’d like to send out a very heartfelt THANK YOU to the many people who made our 2012 Nite of Stars such a success. We were blessed with many generous
sponsors, donors and attendees, not to mention the committee, who worked hard
to put this event together. It’s impossible to list all of these people in such a limited space, so please know how much we appreciate the support you all showed. Mark your
calendars now, because December 6, 2013, will be here before you know it, and we’ll be celebrating once again.
2012 was a year of growth toward an even stronger tomorrow. Our Chamber’s future is bright. I know that if we all continue to help each other and grow our relationships and businesses by
“Shopping Chamber First,” then 2013 is sure to be our best year yet.
