On November 3rd, the Chamber of Commerce in New Haven met at noon upstairs in T&T Bar. Steve Roth began the meeting with a call to order. After the call to order, Angie Scheer then gave the Secretary report and received a motion to approve. Following the Secretary report, Debbie Winters called for the Treasure reports and happily received a motion to approve her call. Since there were no Presidentials to report, the Treasure report was the last report that is given.
The first thing Steve Roth spoke about was the Fire Fest food booths. The food booths were open from 3:00 pm until they sold out. Mr. Roth and his wife helped run and serve the food. The Visitor Center was open from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm during Fire Fest. They sold souvenirs for visitors and the local community as keepsakes.
No decision has been made regarding a rescheduled date for the Adopt a Highway, yet.
Thanks to Reays, the Business After Hours event had a great turn out!
For this year, they want to add a membership benefit that will offer out indoor/outdoor stickers that have the chamber’s logo and “Member 2016” on it as a little added extra for joining the Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber was also very excited to see that on Channel 9 this past weekend, Patrick Murphy gave New Haven a great review! Thank you, Channel 9, for showing the great parts of this small town and exceeding some expectations!
Each month, there is a drawing for Business of the Month. For the month of November, the Robller Winery was the Business of the Month. If you are interested in visiting the winery, Robller is open every day between 10:00 am and 5:30 pm.
The next Chamber of Commerce meeting was held on December 3rd at the T&T Hilltop Lounge’s upstairs at noon, as usual.
The membership fees were finalized with the pricings they had mentioned during the November meeting.
January is going to be a big month for the Chamber of Commerce because the dues will need to be turned in and the Mayor of Washington is going to attend the next meeting.
The talk of the New Haven Channel 9 special was once again a topic that was discussed. All of the footage can be found from Tony Carosella, who is in the Chamber of Commerce.
Lastly, the Business of the Month was drawn.
The December Business of the Month went to the Bank of Franklin County! Congratulations and good job with all of your accounting and banking work which helps a lot of people keep their money in check.
The next meeting is set for the first week of January.
