MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT/CEO - LINDA ASHLEY
The Holiday Luncheon & Farewell Salute to Mayor David W. Smith was a very special event. If you would like to see Mayor Dave's presentation recorded by the Newark Patch go to http://newark.patch.com/articles/mayor-david-smith-s-farewell-party#video-8660969. Over 140 Newark Chamber members & guests celebrated the Mayor's 33 1/2 years of service to the Newark Community.
Tuesday evening from 5pm to 7pm will be the annual Holiday Mixer along with a Ribbon Cutting at the new Bistro Restaurant at the Courtyard by Marriott. It will also be Mayor Al Nagy's first Chamber event as our new Mayor! Mayor Nagy will be on hand to welcome the Bistro & cut the ribbon at about 5:30. We will still be collecting unwrapped toys for the children of the Viola Blythe Service Center and we would love your donations for the Chamber Holiday Raffle.
