Centrally located in "The Heart of Long Island", the Farmingdale Chamber of Commerce uniquely encompasses both Nassau and Suffolk Counties, the Towns of Babylon and Oyster Bay and the Incorporated Village of Farmingdale. The Chamber is dedicated to building a better business community together while striving to preserve the quality, character and vitality of Farmingdale, New York 11735.
I would like to start by thanking all of the sponsors, raffle donors, and volunteers who made Comedy night another success! We couldn’t have done this without you all. We had a great show, and a wonderful host in The Nutty Irishman.
This has certainly been a long winter. It started cold but we avoided a lot of snow until the very end. March nor’easters may not be the norm, but then we got hammered 3 weeks in a row. Hopefully the winter weather is past us and we can get down to business.
We have had a very active past month with our General Meeting at Caracara Mexican Grill and our After Hours Networking at Lithology. Both events had terrific networking opportunities for the attendee’s. Remember, I challenged everyone to make at least 1 appointment to meet outside of a chamber function to see how you can find new business opportunities. Remember at these meetings the purpose isn’t to pitch each other. When networking, often “who you know is more interesting than what you know”.
We also had a ribbon cutting at the new Halal Guys. If you haven’t had a chance to check them out you should! They had an amazing turnout, and they really went out of their way to take care of us. Remember all members are invited to attend our ribbon cuttings. Usually you get to meet a few Elected Officials at these events as well.
We held a Breakfast Networking Event at the Knights of Columbus on Morton Ave. It was a more intimate networking event which gave everyone a chance to really talk and get to know each other. Look for another Breakfast Event later this year.
I was so happy to see so many members took part in the St Patrick’s Day Parade down Main St. It’s such a great opportunity for members to gain exposure. In addition to our marchers I noticed Candy’s Jewelers, The Turning Point, and Edward Jones marching with their own Banners. Also my company had our Mascot “Kurt the Bear” marching, along with “Goldfish” from the Goldfish Swim School. The Parades are so much fun, and all members are invited to march in the Parade with the Chamber, so bring your company Banner, Sign, or Mascot.
Thank you to everyone who helped out at our Shredding Fundraiser. Shredding sensitive documents is so important, and I’m so happy we can bring this service to the community, and help raise funds for the Chamber.
I’m excited for the April Calendar of events. April’s luncheon will be hosted by Sasa Hibachi. Sasa was so generous at their ribbon cutting event last year, and the Sushi was delish! We expect a great time at The Turning point networking event and their ribbon cutting grand reopening. Make sure you come out for those events.
When it comes to providing direct help and support to people within the community I’m not sure anyone does it better than The Summit. We are so glad to be a part of the Summit expo again. Remember all members can drop off their promotional material to our booth at the Summit to give out on your behalf.
I encourage you to invite your business associates to join the chamber. Use this link to refer a member and earn a free lunch at a meeting of your choice.
Let’s continue to network and connect with each other and the community this Spring. I look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming events.
