    Beth Mignone

    Hello Farmingdale!

    I want to extend a big thank you to all of you from our over 200 members for your support over the first months of 2022.

    We know so many of our members are fighting inflation which means so are our clients and customers. Everything costs more, especially gas. We need your support more than ever. We know our small business members are doing their best to hold prices as much as possible. Let's continue to support the Businesses that Support Farmingdale. 

    Despite the hardships caused by inflation, and through the generosity of our members and supporters, the chamber was able to increase the number of scholarships we award to graduating Farmingdale High School seniors. Congratulations to our scholarship recipients, Vanessa Espinosa, Tania Gomez, Allison Rosinger, and Marcin Wasiuta, and all 2022 Graduates. 

    Congrats to all of our new Businesses for choosing Farmingdale, and we look forward to so many great Summer events.
