As 2015 enters it's final months and we begin a new year, I am happy to bring our buinesses and residents an updated website where all can keep in touch with the Chamber of Commerce's events. The Chamber will continue to have a strong presence through social media including Facebook and Twitter, where we will announce events and updates on the daily ongoings of Main Street. We are striving to support our local businesses and provide our resident members with resources and opportunities to further enrich our dynamic Hamlet. Our Chamber just held it's 3rd annual Taste of the South Shore at the Scully Mansion at Seatuck. We were able to raise money to benefit some incredible local organizations such as EJ Autism Foundation, Gavin's Got Heart and Seatuck Enviromental Preserve. The Chamber also sponsored the Fall decorating of Main Street's lamp posts and the welcome triangle on Commack Rd. We are looking forward to ushering in the winter season with this year's Holiday Parade & Christmas Tree lighting.Our decorating efforts on Main Street will continue with our traditional decorations and snowflakes added to each lamp pole. We are also proud to announce that our first ever Grand Marshal will be Suffolk County Legislator Tom Cilmi!
