Thank you to all of the businesses who participated in “Cheers to Chambers” this year. It was a huge success. We added several neighborhoods this year which increased attendance and made the whole event more vibrant.
Photos from the Cheers to Chambers Business Expo can be found in the photo gallery.
A special thank-you to all of the volunteers who came out early and stayed late for set-up and take-down at the event. We couldn’t have done this so well without each of you.
