Happy Thanksgiving! This is the time of year for families to join together and give thanks for all that we have. I hope your plans for this year include special time with your family members.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the State of the City, 2015! Because of your support it was another sellout, 5 years in a row! With 14 restaurants there was food of every variety! I always say, if you cannot find something you want to eat at that event then you are not hungry! We had several first time restaurants this year and they say they will join the Chamber! I want to say a special thank you to Melina, who took on a number of additional tasks around this event in order that I could take time to be with my family visiting from Wales. Thank you Melina!!
Jini Dance Academy Ribbon Cutting went well. What a nice place to take dancing lessons. We learned that she has special “mommy and me” classes for the very young ones; children’s classes; adult classes; and senior classes. Something for everyone. Thank you Mayor Eaton for being there to cut the ribbon. Thank you to Surijini for putting together a lovely lunch for everyone. It was a fun time.
The Chamber in November will be thanking the Montclair Fire Fighters and staff for all they do for the businesses and residents of this fine City. Join with us on November 17th and have breakfast with the Fire Fighters. Make your reservations by calling the Chamber office. There are no walk-ins to this event. Remember that is sells out quickly, so please call soon. See you there.
And November is the last breakfast meeting for this calendar year. We will have a very interesting topic on the 12th. Call for your reservation and save!
