NEWSLETTER ISSUE 12                                                                                                                                                 December 2014

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

The Board of Directors and staff of the SBCC wish you, your families and staff a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous and Happy New Year!

 As we wrap us 2014 with our Annual Slate Belt Toy Drive on December 9th and our Holiday Celebration on the 17th, the directors and staff wish to thank all of our hosts, sponsors, members and speakers for supporting the chamber. Looking back, the success of the Golf Tournament and Awards Banquet are just two reminders of what an organization can do to promote the community and at the same time provide a good time for everyone.

The Annual Christmas Party held for the less fortunate children of the SB is another wonderful event. The Santa’s Elves committee do a great job all year long, but it could not have been done without the donations of area businesses and their support.

As we enter 2015, we are looking forward to the many opportunities that are available to everyone in the Slate Belt area. The Chamber is planning many opportunities to meet your fellow business associates and share in the wealth of information that only an organization such as our chamber can provide.

Remember to support our members, they support our community.

Special “thank you” to Sam’s Club for hosting our Annual Networking Mixer, always a great time.

Congratulations again to the 2014 Award recipients, Joann Ginder, Jennifer Newland, Mary Ortega, & Samantha Johns. Kudo’s to The Pub for the delicious food at our awards banquet.

Slate Belt Rotary: Rotary of the Slate Belt Presents Dictionaries to 3rd Graders–The Rotary Club of the Slate for the third consecutive year as part of the Dictionary Project gave dictionaries to approximately 400 third grade students in all the Slate Belt School Districts and School.  This project was the Club’s first project and started 3 years ago.  Club members visit the schools and present the dictionaries to the students either in an assembly or class by class.  The children learn a little bit about Rotary and also learn that the longest word in the English language is 1,909 letters.

If you would like to know how you could become involved with Rotary Club of the Slate Belt please join us at one of our weekly meetings to learn how you can help give back to our local communities.  We meet every Thursday Night from 6:00 to 7:00 PM at The Scorecard Restaurant in Wind Gap.
