September 2013

Hello everyone. I hope the summer was great for all of you. The Great Geauga County Fair has come and gone and I would like to say thank you to all the volunteers who gave their time to sit and talk to people at the Chamber booth. Thanks to Amy and Mike for stocking the booth and for Dave and Tom for setting up and taking down the booth.

It is now time to get into the swing for the Oxtoberfest, October 12th and 13th. We need people to take 4 hr shifts to take money and help serve the sandwicthes .

Please contact Amy or Tom Blair to take a slot. This is our main fundraiser for the Chamber, so please call and sign up.

This month’s meeting is going to be a joint meeting; the regular Chamber dinner and the Economic Development committee presentation of the new web page with Gabe Arnold, presenter, and the other speakers being the Economic Development Committee .

…just a reminder that the Scarecrows should be out before September 20th. We are not going to give straw this year, but please help by putting a scarecrow out in front of your business. Ohio Tourism has this on their website and people will be coming out to see them. (not scary scarecrows)

Burton uncorked was fun this year. We had 6 wineries come and the band Sophisticated Swing played. Everyone came and sat in the park and listened to them play.

Also tEkk3, on September 18th from 6-8 pm in Chagrin Falls, is offering a workshop about Facebook for your business if anyone is interested. Please call Gabe Arnold at 888-618-9123 ext 700.
