What is the Chamber of Commerce?

The Middleburg Heights Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit, voluntary organization of people working together to promote positive and productive relations among the businesses in the city and between the community. Established in 1975, the purpose of the Middleburg Heights Chamber is to develop and advance the commercial, industrial, civic, and general interest of the city and its trade area.

Members of the Chamber form a dedicated and aware group of civic-minded business leaders as well as men and women of our local government and community who work together to promote the continual growth and development of Middleburg Heights.

A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT….

Dear Members,

After a year of preparation, the American Veterans Traveling Tribute Vietnam Wall will be arriving in Middleburg Heights later this month.  The Wall will be here from July 18th to July 24th. The Chamber is proud to be able to honor the men and women who have served, and continue to serve, our country so honorably. There will be various events throughout the week that will recognize Veterans.  The following is a list of some of the main events taking place:

-July 18th from 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm: Arrival Escort
-July 19th at 1:00 pm: Wall is open to the public
-July 19th at 3:00 pm: Opening Ceremony
-July 19th – 23rd (daily) at 6:00 pm: Reading of 46 local Vietnam soldiers
-July 19th – 23rd (daily) at 8:00 pm: Lowering of the Flag and taps
-July 20th – 24th (daily) at 8:00 am: Raising of the Flag
-July 24th at 1:00 pm:  Closing Ceremony

There will be additional events taking place throughout the week.  Please go to the Chamber website to find the full schedule for the week of the Wall.  We would also like to thank the many volunteers and sponsors who have been instrumental in the planning process of this project.  This event would certainly not be taking place without all of the support we have received.

The June Chamber meeting was at Brookdale where we welcomed Claudio Zanin and Dr. Michael Barkoukis of SouthWest Urology. Claudio and Dr. Barkoukis gave an informative presentation which was well received during the outdoor barbecue with food provided by Jaworski’s.  Thank you to Brookdale, the team at SouthWest Urology and Jaworksi’s for combining to help have a great meeting.

I am pleased to report that the Chamber had two more successful events this past month.  The Annual Joint Chamber Golf Outing took place on June 17th at Cherokee Hills Golf Course.  Also, the Chamber helped provide volunteers at the Lemonade Stand during Summer in the City.  Positive feedback was received on both of these events.  Thank you to all of the volunteers and participants for each of these Chamber-related functions.

Please make a note, as is customary, there will not be a monthly Chamber meeting in July.  I hope to see you at the Vietnam Wall.

Sincerely,

John Grech, President
