President's Message
Carrie Sassi
I hope you all had a fantastic summer.

I'd like to welcome two new Chamber Board members that have joined us last month. Ann Sullivan is joining us from True Value here in Killingworth. True Value is a long time Chamber Member; it will be fantastic to have Ann as a part of our BOD, as not only a liaison between businesses and True Value, but she comes to us with many years of experience on committees and volunteering throughout various places.

We also welcome real estate agent Bob Allison to your Chamber BOD. Bob is currently with Page Taft Realty. He has a pulse on the current market and we welcome his expertise in that area of business and beyond. I look forward to working with both of them!

Your Chamber Board is planning some event opportunities for you to attend. We will be gathering this month for a Business After Hours event on Sept. 25 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. at The Chatfield Hollow Bed and Breakfast.

On Oct. 25, we are partners in hosting the 2nd Annual Pumpkin Carving event at Parmelee Farm. Then, closing out the year, we will once again host the Christmas at the Farm event. These events are for you, the business owner and Chamber member to come meet others. We want to help you grow your business and connect you with potential customers. You are welcome to co-sponsor any event with a donation. There are also numerous volunteer opportunities for you or your family members. Please contact me or any Board member if you'd like to get involved.

As you know, sometimes it is a simple handshake and conversation that gets the ball rolling for bigger business relationships.
