Chamber resumes office hours

The North East Chamber of Commerce is pleased to once again welcome walk-in and telephone inquiries at its offices, 44 W. Main St.

“Since Winefest the board of directors have been actively meeting, working to coordinate events such as Light Up Night and prepare for 2022,” said Jenny Sholtis, board president. “We were thrilled to see the record turnout to our events over the holidays, but nothing makes us happier than opening our doors again to the community.”

The volunteer board, which includes Sholtis, Vern Frye, Carl Gregg, Beth Lewis, Maria Pisano, Jennifer Rodenbaugh and Mike Yori, recently added Jennifer Smith as a part-time employee who will serve as a liaison between the board and the community. 

Together the board and Smith are working to promote North East, along with its events, businesses, charming atmosphere and way of life.

“The last two years have been a challenge for everyone,” Sholtis said. “We appreciate the community’s support and patience as we evolve to continue the legacy of cultivating a thriving community that began with the founding of the Chamber in 1958.”

The North East Area Chamber of Commerce office hours are Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and anytime via phone at (814) 725-4262 or info@nechamber.org.
