    From the Director’s Desk

    What a summer it is, and we are still in full swing! July proved to be a fun month with our Christmas in July event at the, always beautiful, Iroquois Club. We enjoyed the lovely view of the lake and delicious food. Confections of a Cake Lover never disappoints, as they made numerous amazing, themed cookies & cupcakes. A few lucky members took home tickets to attend upcoming Chamber events, and fun was had by all. Earlier in the month we hosted 25 teams of women for the women’s golf outing at Whispering Pines. Over 100 people enjoyed a great day of golf and fun on the course, and many walked away with great prizes. Thanks to all those that helped make this event a huge success, including our event sponsors, volunteers, and auction donors. 

    Coming up, Thunder in the City is back! This community event remains free to all thanks to our many generous sponsors, including our long-time supporters, the J.M. Smucker Company and CHANNELLOCK. Along with the usual car show, corn hole tournament, vendors, kids’ games, the motorcycle parade & more, we have added several new additions to the event this year, making it bigger and better for all. Chalk the Block will feature local artists displaying their talents with chalk art on Chestnut Street. We are having fun with the Color Bubble Rush with bubbles and waves of color splattered on folks, and you can also have fun in the Chalk Shop’s Splatter tent! The Poker Run will be heading to Street Track ‘n Trail, Hunter’s inn, Hitchy’s, Willy G’s, Ranz and back to Firehouse Tap & Grille where the best poker hand will win $250! Thanks to Griffin Motors for sponsoring a first-time event, the Cans for Wishes Jeep Show. This event will help raise money toward granting wishes for youth in Crawford County. Please bring your aluminum cans to donate to the cause.  Bring your jeep to display & be judged.  Be entertained Friday night and all-day Saturday with live local entertainment on stage near the Diamond.  

    Mid-month brings us a unique Business After Hours (that has been planned for a year) at the Crawford County Fair. Join us & enjoy some delectable fair food, meet with the Fair Board & maybe win a prize. Then stay and enjoy the grounds and all that is available. 

    The last day of the month is our Fall Golf Outing at Mt. Hope, which is already full, and we anticipate a great day with players from across the region. We are still accepting sponsorships for that event, as well as donations for line prizes and the auction. 

    Looking ahead, September will bring us a downtown favorite, the annual Wine, Brew & Spirits Walk on Saturday, September 10th.  Be sure to sponsor this event which includes tickets to the event for yourself, employees, coworkers, and friends. About 1,000 people from across the region will sample crowd-favorites and new creations by local wineries, breweries, distilleries, and local restaurants. This is an event that fills our hotels and restaurants and allows locals and visitors alike to see a variety of businesses that they may not have encountered. 

    Our Leadership Meadville Class 13 is full, and there is already a waitlist for the next class. This year we had an abundance of people interested in being part of our premier program, which we think is one of our Chamber’s greatest assets. Thanks to our sponsors, employers that believe in the program, and all that assist in making it one of the best leadership programs in the region. 

    We are always busy, but we are never too busy for you, our members. Please make an appointment with me at any time. I want to learn more about what you do, how you are doing, and if there is anything that we, your Chamber, can do for you. Please keep us informed of any changes taking place at your workplace. Keep us informed of programs and events happening. If you want our assistance with anything, please reach out. Be sure to follow our Facebook page, read your emails and if you have time, attend any of our events. We would love to see you!

    Sincerely,

    Christa
