Dear Chamber Members: 

One of my favorite events of the year is our Recognition Lunch where members from Winnetka and Northfield are honored for their dedication and service to our communities.  Their stories of leadership and motivation are inspiring.    

For 93 years the chamber has stood as a united voice for the business community where we have continually adapted and improved due to the dedication of hundreds of volunteers and chamber members who share a belief that a community is only as strong as the alliance it maintains between its business and civic leaders, schools, local government officials and the people who enjoy living and working together.  The Recognition Lunch brings all of our organizations together on one day to celebrate.

The Winnetka-Northfield Chamber will be hosting the 40 th Annual Recognition Lunch on Wednesday, April 6  at the Winnetka Community House, 620 Lincoln Avenue in Matz Hall. Meet and greet will begin at 11:00 a.m. with seating at 11:45 a.m.  If you are interested in attending...read Terry's letter in its entirety
