Ponderings of the President
President’s Speech, 2020 Virtual Annual Awards:
2020 was a very trying year for businesses in town. I am amazed at how many of our members rolled up their shirt sleeves and took this pandemic head on! I know things were difficult but we are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
We had some very positive things happen at the chamber in 2020 even during what seemed to be the worst of times. We participated in the Consumers Energy “Our Town” Gift Certificate program that matched dollar for dollar on gift certificate purchases of up to $9000, resulting in $18,000 circulating around town for our members. We also established the Chesaning Chamber Foundation so that in the future we can offer more assistance to our members and the community when challenges arise. We also had one of the most successful golf outings that we can remember, thanks to our generous members and golfers.
This year we are planning on having our Fireworks display and, so far this year, we have had the best raffle ticket sales in recent history to support it.
I want to thank all of our members for Sticking With Us in 2021; remember, the Chamber is here for you! Please take advantage of your membership perks. We have a lot to offer.
I know that in 2021, Chesaning will come out of this pandemic stronger than ever!
Yours in business,
