Dear Chamber Members:

Fall is in the air.  The pace of the day has quickened.  School has started, new plans are in place and the holidays are not far away.
With the change of season so begins the new membership year at the Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce.  Throughout the day, throughout the year, the Chamber reaches out with opportunities for business connections.
