Ponderings of the President
#ChesaningStrong. Over the past 4 months, this phrase has become a message of unity during these uncertain days. We have seen businesses demonstrate #ChesaningStrong with resiliency and creativity, including embracing new ways to deliver their products via online and contactless service, and using the quarantine time to remodel and update their locations. Our members have taken a negative and turned it into a positive to both survive and thrive during the pandemic. We have even seen some of our members add new products and services AND have been excited to see other new businesses opening. Our community has embraced #ChesaningStrong by supporting local businesses and being creative with new events such as Wheelin’ Wednesdays, Chesaning Cruze Nights and A Taste of Fair at the fairgrounds.
The pandemic has put many roadblocks in front of our chamber’s annual events such as our golf outing and Fireworks in Showboat Park. As you know, we rescheduled our golf outing from May 17 to September 20. The Golf committee is working with Twin Brooks to offer a great fundraiser for our scholarship program that also meets state guidelines for public health. We also hope to be able to offer a new fireworks event at a later date, depending upon many factors.
The road ahead may be difficult but if we keep the spirit of #ChesaningStrong and continue to support each other and stay positive, Chesaning will emerge from the months ahead stronger than ever and positioned to handle anything that comes our way.
As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to the chamber board of directors and staff if we can help you in any way. Stay healthy!
Yours in business,
Greg Bruff, 989-280-4938
Board of Directors President
