A Message From Your Chamber President

Dustin Beck
U.S. Bank
Dear Members,
 
Summer is finally in full swing and with so much going on it is easy to forget how lucky we are to have so much opportunity available to us. Our Grafton Area Chamber of Commerce staff and event committees deserve a big thank you for all they do in keeping these events running smoothly. The return of Celebrate Grafton's Holidaze event to the downtown area and the fireworks to Lime Kiln Park was a perfect example of how we strive to give the community the events that they nostalgically ask for. At the same time, the success of our new Food Truck Tour shows us that our community is willing to embrace new traditions with the same excitement as more established traditions. Make sure you are taking full advantage of your Chamber membership by getting involved with one of our great events. In addition, I want to invite you to take the time to enjoy summer and the development of this wonderful little community that you helped to create.

-- Dustin
