Happy summer everyone!
As we look forward to vacations, long summer days, and time with family and friends I want to assure you that the Chamber will be working for you throughout the summer.
Last week I was happy to attend a meeting of the License & Permits committee of the City Council to discuss the issue of transient vendors downtown. It was great to see many members at that meeting who are interested in that topic. I hope that as a member you reach out to me about matters of importance downtown and throughout our city and region. Also, with the assistance of our membership committee volunteers, we will be popping in to visit many of you over the next couple of months! I look forward to seeing many of you.
Along with or Chamber membership responsibilities, we will be kicking off a new event in Downtown Newburyport. We hope that you will join us for “Music in Market Square” starting Thursday, July 7th from 6 – 8 PM. To help celebrate the Chamber turning 50 years old this year, we wanted to offer something special for our community! The concerts will be held every Thursday in July and two Thursdays in August. We are looking for members who may be interested in helping us offer this to the community through sponsorships. Please contact Ann Ormond for sponsorship information.
