Ponderings of the President
Where has this year gone? 2020 has been a roller coaster ride and looks like it will continue on that path for the foreseeable future. Certainly, the pandemic has brought its fair share of challenges, but don’t discount the positive things going on in our community. For instance, the #ChesaningStrong campaign started by Rehmann’s has promoted community unity and positivity, as well as being a catalyst for establishing our new Chamber Foundation. We anticipate and celebrate several new businesses and expansions this year, including the new Creative Passion’s Quilt Shop, Riverfront Grille’s new coffee shop, Top Coat Nail Studio, Perx and Pastries, and more to come. In keeping with this positive direction for our community, your board voted at our September meeting to adopt a new Chamber slogan: “Chesaning-Come Grow With Us”.
We are already seeing signs of the upcoming holiday season and have heard about many exciting things happening locally including the return of the Village’s Battle of the Bulbs, Riverfront Grille’s Tree Lighting Extravaganza (including a new Golf Cart Light Parade!) and other projects and events in the works. A group of motivated citizens is even working to bring the Candlelight Walk back to life. We are hoping that community will find opportunities to get involved in making this a memorable holiday season. If you would like to volunteer to help make Chesaning sparkle, the Chamber is once again organizing the lighting of the boulevard and downtown trees… please let us know if your business or organization would like to be a part of this endeavor.
I personally am looking forward to the holidays this year. Let’s get back to what matters most and make the season special for each other.
Yours in business,
