    From the Director’s Desk

    Summer is finally here, and we have a busy one planned for you! June is one of my favorite months for many reasons. Personally, I have many family birthdays to celebrate this month, which means more quality family time to celebrate. Another special day is Father’s Day, where I am blessed to not only have my dad but another special person who is a second dad to me to celebrate. The end of the month brings memories of my late husband, who would be celebrating his 60th this year (we would have been having a huge celebration!) and we got married late June so I will forever cherish that day. Professionally, Summer means we are gearing up for fun events. Golf Outings are being planned, and we have two of the best! Our Women’s Outing is Tuesday, July 12th at Whispering Pines and the Fall Golf Outing is Wednesday, August 31st at Mt. Hope Golf Course. Be sure to make your reservations for these events if you are thinking of participating. There are several sponsorship opportunities for the events that include teams or just your company logo on the marketing materials and at the events.

    We celebrated the completion of Leadership Meadville 12 with economic development day and a luncheon at the Meadville Country Club. This program, which has transformed many participants’ lives, is one of the Chamber’s assets. We are now accepting applications for Leadership Meadville 13! If you or anyone at your company is interested in growing professionally and personally as a leader, want to connect with people from a variety of business sectors and learn more about all that Crawford County has to offer, this is the program for you or them. Contact us soon, limited space is available.

    We have been busy with numerous ribbon cuttings, grand openings, anniversary celebrations and have also enjoyed learning more about some of our members at their Business After Hours. We really enjoyed dressing in our favorite seventies attire for the 50th Anniversary Celebration at the Interim Healthcare one. If your company is interested in holding any of these events in the next year, please contact one of us at the Chamber and we would be more than happy to help you schedule your event.

    We are also finalizing a community favorite, Thunder in the City. Special thanks to our long-time sponsors of this event, CHANNELLOCK, The J.M. Smucker Company and Street Track ‘n Trail for helping to continue to make this family friendly, free community event possible. This year’s event will be Friday August 5th kicking things off with Mayflower Hill playing near the Diamond. That night is also First Friday and the Annual Car Cruise in at Lang Motors. The next morning will bring many of the annual festivities, while adding a few new ones this year! It begins with a favorite, the car show and some oldies music from COOL 101.7. Add in the local vendors & food trucks, the corn hole tournament, live entertainment by local acts, and there is something for everyone. We are also adding some new events to the lineup this year, including The Chalk Shop Private Splatter Room! We are looking for some local artists to “Chalk the Block.” Stay tuned to our Facebook page for more being added. Another favorite is always the bike parade rolling into town from Street Track ‘n Trail, which will also include a Thunder Poker Run this year with a cash prize to the best poker hand. Get some tasty food from a downtown restaurant or try something from the local food trucks that will be here for the day, including Donutology to start the day off with something sweet! I know the Chamber staff is looking forward to this addition this year!

    As you can see, a great deal is happening at your Chamber office. Please follow our Facebook page to see our upcoming events and programs. Stop in the Chamber office, call or email us if you have any questions or to schedule a one-on-one meeting. I look forward to seeing you soon. Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads out there and those that are like a dad to many of us!  Cheers to all of you!

    Sincerely,

    Christa
