Thursday August 25th may have started off as a dreary day but at the Bangor Savings bank (downtown location) Business After Hours everyone seemed bright and sunny!
The BACC montlhy Business After Hours was held this month at Bangor Savings Bank on Main St in Belfast. The event was very well attended despite the weather and the cancellation of the Summer Nights Music in the Streets (due to weather). The Chamber would like to thank all of the members and guests who attended as well as the very competent staff from Bangor Savings ( Amy Bowen, and Cathy Reynolds). We would also like to thank Bangor Savings for their generous raffle items that were drawn towards the end of the evening including 2 grill gift sets, deck chairs and 2 / $50 saving certificates.
Executive Director Jack Driscoll introduced Dave Crabiel new owner of the Chocolate Drop Candy Shop and Dawn Demaris store manager as new members of the Chamber, as well as Marina Macho from Durango Business Support ( Marina is also our wonderful bookkeeper for the Chamber). Board of Director President Rob Constantine, Board member Ken Mitchell, and Board member Dave Hendrix all were in attendance.
The Chamber of Commerce added three new members to the board of Directors.
