From Chamber Chairman Robert Bontempi
Thanksgiving is the time of year that many point to as the official start of the holiday season. It is a time to give thanks and express appreciation for our family, friends, colleagues and clients. It is also a time to gather with loved ones and reflect on another year gone by.
The Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce would like to share with you – the members of the Huntington community – a message of thanks.
First, I would like to wish everyone a holiday season filled with health and happiness as you spend time with business colleagues, good friends and family. I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to the members, sponsors and volunteers of the Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce and the Huntington community for their continued support for this wonderful organization. I hope each and every one of you has a chance to enjoy the many precious moments that the holiday season provides.
During this special time of year, we, at the Chamber, feel it is important to take a few minutes to give thanks to the many that have made a significant impact on our Chamber of Commerce and the local community:
- To the members of our Chamber Board and Executive Board: I would like to thank you for your talent, professionalism, and relentless commitment to ensure that the Chamber provides value to our membership
- To our sponsors: I would like to thank you for your support and dedication to our Chamber. Thank you for your trust in us to implement effective programs for our membership
- To the Chamber staff: I would like to thank you for coordinating our initiatives and supporting every member’s needs. It is truly a pleasure to work with a staff which is such a great reflection on us and helps to strengthen our organization
- To Huntington’s community service workers and volunteers: Thank you for your efforts and your support of our initiatives and thank you for providing necessary resources to give back to the local community
- To the community: We are extremely fortunate to be living in the Town of Huntington where we are given the opportunity to work cooperatively with the pillars of our town, including Huntington Town Supervisor Frank Petrone, the Huntington Town Board, employees of the many departments within the Town of Huntington as well as the many community organizations which play such a vital role in our day-to-day lives. Thank you for supporting your local Chamber of Commerce in our efforts to support the local business community
- To our not-for-profits: We thank you for your crucial involvement in the community and for always being there to help those that may need our assistance
- To our many valued members: Thank you for inspiring us to do the things we do on a daily basis. We truly appreciate each and every one of you. Whether you are an entrepreneur who works in your own business or you work for a local business or major corporation, each of you has a spirit that harnesses the potential to make a difference
And don’t forget to Buy Local and Spend the Holidays at Home in order to support the local merchants within the Huntington community. You can start this Saturday during “Small Business Saturday.” Please visit the Huntington Passport (http://www.huntingtonpassport.com) which provides a wide array of information about local merchants, events and where to find that special gift for that special someone.
I wish all of you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving and peace and happiness throughout the holiday season.
