Join us on the lawn for appetizers, cocktails, celebrate our members and being together after an extremely long year! The following week is our Women's Golf Outing on the 26th at the newly remodeled Riverside Golf Course. There's still time to get your team together, sponsor or donate a gift basket for the event auction. We are looking forward to over 20 teams of women at this event celebrating all that this new team of owners have done at the course, keeping some of the venue and community history while updating the space and course in so many ways! Register your team or sponsorship now!

    We have changed things up for Thunder in the City this year, scaling things back for a more family friendly event in and around Diamond Park. There will be the annual car cruise in & First Friday on Friday, August 6th, the Thunder in the City will take place on Saturday, August 7th from 8am-9:30pm. The car show is from 8am-3pm.

We try to meet once per quarter at a member business and all Chamber member businesswomen are welcome to attend.

    Our Leadership Meadville 12 class is taking shape and we are going to have a full if not overfull class! If you missed the deadline, or if you have anyone at your workplace that is interested in the program, reach out to us to be added to the waiting list for next year's class. This program is one of the Chamber's greatest assets that we are extremely proud of. The Leadership Meadville 11 class graduated and celebrated at Conneaut Cellars Winery & Distillery last month. We enjoyed a wonderful evening, including a private tasting from owner, Joal Wolf, a delicious dinner from The Crooked Paddle and delectable desserts from our of our newest members, the Strudel Factory!

    The Chamber continues to grow each month, yet we are still look forward to meeting with more of you we have not seen or talked with in some time.
