Valued Chamber Member,
Well we finally had some much needed rain the other week! Time is moving fast in 2018 and the Chamber is moving into the fall where we have several main events coming up. First off, I want to thank everyone that participated in our Annual Chamber Golf Outing. We had great weather and a good turnout. There were 27 teams that insured a smooth outing that played fairly fast. Thank you to all of you that played.
Our second Good Morning Defiance series was very well attended at Defi Threads and Things sponsored by BIGGBY Coffee. I can see us adding more of these in 2019. Thank you to everyone that attended.
On August 16
we will be having our Business after Hours at Kissner’s sponsored by First Energy and Gary Keys. You will not want to miss this one, Kissner’s always does a great job with the food and there will be more door prizes than normal!
Please mark your calendars for our Annual Awards Banquet. The Banquet will be held on September 13
at the Knights of Columbus Hall. This event honors our businesses and individuals in our community by awarding the Michael A. Schultz Leadership Award, Quality of Life Award, and the 4 Under 40 Award. We have some outstanding nominees this year. The Defiance Area Foundation will be honoring their nominee for the Good Citizenship Award as well. This prestigious award, endowed by the Laurie and Mike McCann Family began in 2015 and is presented annually to one of Defiance area’s outstanding citizens. Many of you will have your businesses honored at this banquet. If you received a letter for the Business Achievement Award this year please respond with your company history and picture. This is a celebration of the businesses in the Defiance community.
Enjoy the very warm weather and thank you for your support and dedication to the Chamber!
