On behalf of the Board of Directors and all of our members I would like to thank everyone who attended comedy night, especially our sponsors. Thanks to them we were able to raise thousands of dollars for our Farmingdale High School Scholarship program and community causes for 2021. This marks a change in how we handle the fundraising for this cause and will allow us to better plan and hopefully continue to increase our funding of high school scholarships and other support within the community.
I also congratulate Ken Marcus of the Marcus Family Agency Allstate for being chosen as Farmingdale’s Nassau County Council of Chambers Business Person of the Year. Ken Marcus is a fixture at our Chamber functions, Board of Director Meetings, and one of the main drivers of what has made our Chamber so strong. Ken, thank you for all the work you do, and thank you for your support of Farmingdale and Small Business.
I am very excited to let everyone know the Chamber is in the process of rebranding. This will mean a new logo, new domain name, website changes and more! The goal is to be more connected to Farmingdale, and be more consumer and resident facing to help drive more business and better connection from Farmingdale and your business. Be on the lookout for more as its available!
Our elections are in November for Board of Directors. If you’re interested in serving on the board please let Ralph Ekstrand know as soon as possible.
Let’s not forget to have some fun! As part of your Chamber membership you’re invited to our Holiday Party and Installation Dinner every year. This year we will be back at Bethpage Black! Well, Lessing's Heritage Club located at the Bethpage State Golf Course at least! Please keep a look out for your invitation.
I hope you enjoyed the Columbus Day weekend fair and hope you spent some time at the chamber’s tent meeting members and residents. I look forward to our last few months of 2021 coming to a close and look forward to Health and Wealth for all of us in 2022.
