Happy New Year!!! I hope everyone had great holidays. Reflecting back over the year, it has truly been one of change and growth. From a Chamber perspective the latter part of this year was one of growth. We’ve started to see an increase in our membership which has called for more open houses and ribbon cuttings, attendance at these and other events has been extremely well, and our continued support from the City of Temple Terrace and the communication between the Chamber office and the City Council has been great for unity within the City of the Greater Temple Terrace area. I think our new president Lee Bell has been a great asset in continuing with that growth. Kara and Lee have been working really well together and working hard to continue to serve you the member, and to try new and exciting things to keep you wanting to be more involved and continue your support with the Chamber and the business community.
We kick off January with a bang. Firstly, we have the Ed Hanna Business of the Year nominees Luncheon on the 21st and a week later on the 28th we have the Reception to announce the winners of these awards! I encourage everyone to please, attend both of these events to support your fellow Chamber members, it is a great honor and if you didn’t get nominated this time please know your time will come!!! Thank you to Dallas 1 Corporation for being our Title Sponsor for Business of the Year Luncheon and Awards Reception. Sponsorship is a big help and we appreciate your support for this event.
In the next few months, I would like to find out how we can get the word out to the Greater Temple Terrace area residents about their Chamber Of Commerce which in turns means getting the word out about the businesses in the area. If you have any ideas you would like to share please feel free to contact me: Charleehall@verizon.net, until next month…
