Message from the President
It is with sadness I have to report the passing of Bill Furiosi from Recovery Insurance Adjusters.  Our hearts go out to Bill’s family with his sudden passing.  RIA are one of our newest members, so we did not know Bill for long, but he joined whole-heartedly by sponsoring the Mayors Breakfast, a luncheon and really wanted to become a Trustee.  We will miss our new friend.

Hats, Handbags & Horses had a room filled with fabulous hats and bow ties.  Congratulations to Jeanne Soucie and Don Windle for winning the hat and bow tie contest.  I would also like to thank the following for donating such wonderful auction items: Red Rose Concierge & All Occasion Gift Baskets, Henegar Center, Zonta Club, Andretti Thrill Park, Dr. Clevens, Jersey Mikes, Kevin Chancellor, ASAP Pest Control, Aloha Maintenance Services, Wendy Barnes, Brevard Symphony, El Chico, Club 52, RiverView Senior Resort Living, Melbourne Home Staging, Unique Treasures, Roe 2 Fashion, Cottonways, Boniface Hiers, and Fogarty Home Inspection.

Join us on Tuesday from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. for Chamber Chat where we will discuss how to get the most out of your Chamber membership, organizational memberships and networking events.  It is all about planning. 

Finally, join us for our Business after Hours Mingle next Wednesday at El Chico’s from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.  Admission includes one drink ticket and appetizers.  Relax and get to know your fellow Chamber members.  

Have a wonderful weekend,

Nancy Peltonen
