NOVEMBER 22/23….ART/CRAFT SHOW

DECEMBER 2……..CHRISTMAS BY THE SEA

BCbythesea…overheard at the last Commission meeting…Vice Mayor McIntee…promising Paul Novak…to go back to the VFD membership to get some bucks for the Chamber Christmas By The Sea…”not $5000″…(previous post….the Vice Mayor independently promised the $$$$…only to back out….due to the membership never approving)…but something….HMMMM….more strong-arming to take place?….

LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT…

An Overview…

Paul Novak…wrote about the slow season being over….and the increase that is to come with season….of the upcoming Chamber events…and the need for small and large donations…

He went on to thank the Mayor…Town Manager and Commissioners on 3 matters….for letting the Chamber/Welcome Center remain at its longtime present location….renewing the Chamber’s contract for a year…(although the amount was reduced…from $35-$27 thousand)….and budgeting in $7 thousand for Christmas By The Sea….being very “Presidential”…he finished writing that all of these decisions will benefit the Town in the days ahead…leaving out the personal acknowledgment of all the “hurdles” he went through to get these decisions made….KUDOS…Paul…

Candidates are needed to run for the Chamber Board a bio…and sign -up forms have been sent out and are available …results on Nov. 25th….

Hoteliers are encouraged to provide “Rip Tide” information supplied by the Town in all rooms…to help in the effort to educate their guests…

Closing by pointing out how relevant the Chamber of commerce is to our town….and it is the only organization that exclusively promotes business and events in town….and the Welcome Center…is the only one in Broward County….
