    Fall has arrived. Cooler weather. The smell of pumpkin & fall spices in everything, leaves changing, getting out warmer clothes, fall sports and tv shows & so much more. We love fall here at the Chamber, as it brings some of our favorite signature events! This month is our largest fundraiser of the year and a win-win for all our members and the community. There will be something for every member and every budget. From advertising services like television, radio, print, billboard space, website design, IT services to packages that are geared towards thanking and ensuring employees know they are appreciated and fun & unique ideas to retain new clients as well. There are trips, catered meals, golf packages, overnight hotel stays, stress relief & pampering packages, auto detailing, venue spaces, event tickets, personal fitness packages & so much more! Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 27th for our Member Services Auction at the Movies at Meadville and online! You won’t want to miss this!

    We have been extremely busy with ribbon cuttings & grand opening events lately! This is fun and always a rewarding experience to be part of celebrations for our members and the community! Several places have outgrown original spaces and had to move into larger spaces, and some have just opened their doors! Congratulations to all & we wish you each the best of luck in your newest business endeavors!

    We will not slow down in this final quarter of the year. Two weeks after the Auction is another signature event, our Women in Business Expo at the Meadville Country Club on November 10th from 4-8pm.! Join us or please share the event with your friends & business colleagues! We kickoff the holiday shopping season and promote supporting our local merchants & vendors, that are women owned or managed. We will hear from some dynamic business and community leaders. This year we will be enlightened by several women with a community update on a variety of topics such as local economic development, the local University, our nonprofit sector, our Chamber Foundation involvement in the school system, and a downtown business update.  We will enjoy delicious food and signature cocktails. Join us any time that evening. The speakers begin at 6:15pm. Shopping & socializing begins at 4pm. The drawing for door prize baskets will be at 7:30pm, as each vendor donates a wonderful gift basket! This event is open to ALL WOMEN in any community. Bring friends.

    Light up Night Meadville is Friday, December 3rd! Our theme this year is a Winter Wonderland. There are countless interpretations of this, and we look forward to seeing our community become this Wonderland! This is also a First Friday event. We partner with the Meadville Independent Business Alliance to bring you the unique ice sculptures once again around downtown. Join us to see Santa arrive, hear Christmas carols in Diamond Park and more. Thanks to Pampered Palate Catering for once again supplying the hot cocoa & cookies for the community and to our Leadership Meadville class for volunteering to distribute these on this wonderful night in our community!  

    Our Annual Christmas Party & Member Appreciation event is Wednesday, December 8th at the Hotel Conneaut from 5-7pm. We will recognize the Chamber Board of Directors, Ambassadors, announce our new Board members and thank those who are leaving the Board. We will also announce the winners of the Downtown Decorating Contest and draw for the winner of the FREE Silver membership from the business cards we have collected at this year’s events. 

    We look forward to seeing you at one of our numerous events and programs soon. Join us for our last couple Business After Hours events and our Member Orientation meetings to learn more about the Chamber or have a refresher course to see ALL that we are doing.

    Sincerely,

    Christa
