A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT….
What a great year this has been and there are so many more exciting opportunities on the horizon!
The Islander Bar & Grille recently joined the Chamber.
Our remaining meetings for the year are on November 2nd and December 7th. The presentation for November will be the “State of Southwest General Health Center” presented by their President and CEO, Mr. Bill Young. On December 7th, we will celebrate each other and the upcoming Holidays and be entertained by the Berea-Midpark High School Show Choir Centerstage directed by Catherine Robison-Ranney.
Please register early online or by calling the Chamber office.
The next edition of the Middleburg Heights Directory is in process. This is an excellent community resource and also a fundraiser for the Chamber. Promote your business and support your Chamber by reserving your ad space now. The theme this year will be “Then and Now”. In preparation for 2018, we are looking to all of you for various historical media documents or pictures of Middleburg Heights past. For example, the Chamber started in 1975 with 3 founding members. They met at Marcal’s Restaurant near the intersection of W. 130th and Pearl and sadly the restaurant was destroyed by fire.
Today we have 240+ members and routinely meet at the Community Center due to our growing numbers. Our present success is a result of the efforts of so many. Please go on our web page and review the categories for award nominations. As we anticipate the revival of the “SALUTE TO THE CITY” early next year, we are looking for nominations for the Business Person of the Year, Volunteer of the Year and Community Spirit awards. PLEASE let us know who you feel deserves these most. Deadline is 12/1/17.
As was evidenced for several months this year, this has been a year of growth and development for the city. Please consider joining the Chamber and one of our committees to learn more about the possibilities to grow your business and network with other local business owners. Your success is our purpose and our goal!!!.
