The sizzling spirit of the summer is here, and the Melville Community is bustling: most college students are back home, and the elementary through high school students are relieved their daily structure of school has commenced. Teachers are tired, parents are frantically making last minute plans to settle their children into camps, and "summer-driven" business is gearing up for a busy and productive season.
Ahhhh...so the time has come - SUMMER VACATION! Who needs to leave Long Island for the summer when we are home to the most beautiful harbors and oceans in America? In addition our waters, we have our summer outdoor concerts, barbeques, crafts fairs, art and music festivals, clambakes, farmers markets, wine tastings and an assorted array of sporting events, Long Islanders support each other by having fun while keeping the business community on Long Island stimulated.
Don't forget to support the Melville Business Community with your vacation plans. Melville provides many fun-filled summer places that have been "historic go-to" spots for summer fun entertainment:
Adventureland, Old Bethpage Village Restoration, and
White Post Farms. Melville also boasts new, exciting places like
The Adventure Park at Long Island right in our backyard where you can go zip lining and hike interesting trails. If you are into being "on the move", you get jet over to
Pole Position to do some go-karting.
These businesses are here for us to enjoy, and our Melville Chamber is here to support you. Summer is a time for planning for programs that we host in the fall. We are working hard to be a forum that connects our local members and businesses, and to offer programs that are of value to our members.
I will leave you with a quote that makes me think of our Summer on Long Island:
"Price is what you pay. Value is what you get. " -Warren Buffet
Our Melville Businesses understand that we need to spend to stay.
Wishing you all a fun and productive July!
