A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT….
As we approach the month of April, we look to “spring forward” with many upcoming events beginning with our State of the City luncheon April 12. This event brings residents, city staff and civic leaders together. Mayor Gary Starr will summarize a review of the City’s accomplishments highlighting our progress and plans for the future. Members are encouraged to attend.
Preparations are underway to celebrate the return of Your Salute to the City on April 27 at the Middleburg Heights Community Center. This event – now in its 30th year – recognizes an individual who goes above and beyond demonstrating the ideals of a particular organization either at work or as a volunteer. Nominations for consideration have been received from civic organizations, local companies and churches in search of this year’s award recipient to be announced on April 27. Tickets are $40.00 on sale via our Chamber web page.
