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.
We have held and participated in some great events over the last couple of months. The Lexus Multi-chamber event, Ribbon cuttings, Meetings, Networking Events, Parades, Fairs and more! I want to say thank you to all the people who spend so much time and energy planning and executing these events. I know it’s a labor of love.
Living and working on Long Island is truly a privilege during the summer months. Boating, beaches, waterside dining, golf, so many parks, wineries, fishing, hiking, biking etc, there seems to be endless activities to cram in just a few months. Well, if Long Islanders have it good, those of us who live or work in Farmingdale (or both) are even luckier. Main Street comes alive with the warm weather. The Sunday Farmer’s Market, Fairs, Farmingdale Music On Main and Movie Nights start up July 12th, Village Pops Concerts starting July 27th, Open Mic Nights: there is no shortage of things to do around town! Thank you to all the Town and Village leaders who keep finding ways to showcase Farmingdale and bring people in to shop, eat, and drink.
I am very excited for the next networking event at the Nutty Irishman on July 19th to see the new ‘Montauk Beach Club’ they built on the back patio. These events are always a great time, but also a wonderful chance to make connections and to find a business opportunity.
Speaking of new business opportunities, there are a bunch of opportunities coming up. The Chamber is taking a Booth at a few Town sponsored Events this summer. This means all members have the opportunity to come to the booth and speak with attendees about your business, programs, events, etc. It’s a great way to connect your company to the community. If you have any questions let me know. If you would like to have some of your promotional materials handed out at these events we can arrange for that as well.
Also thanks to everyone’s support and hard work we were able to donate scholarships to two Farmingdale High School graduates this year. Congratulations to Dominick Baranello and Edward Brown. We wish you a bright future!
Remember: General Meetings (luncheons) are not hosted during July and August. Our September luncheon meeting will be held on Thursday, September 6 at 12 noon, Palmer's American Grille, 123 Fulton Street, Farmingdale, NY, and then Board elections is this November. Many of you mentioned you would like to get more involved. Let me know if you’re interested in running for the board and I will be happy to discuss it with you!
