The Melville Chamber of Commerce has had a busy season and an even busier year so far, but we're not stopping for anything. We are moving full speed ahead with planned events. We just finished a breakfast meeting at a T. Weiss Realty building, at 324 South Service Rd., Melville, where both an estate planning attorney and a disability income specialist educated us on some of the finer points of financial planning, moderated by yours truly. We also were fortunate to have great weather for an after-hours networking event at Refuge this past week which was very well attended, not only by existing members but many prospective members as well. I guess the word is getting out and we are growing faster than ever!

Our next events are an afterhours gathering at Nicky's By The Bay on August 22nd. and the Red Cross breakfast on September 7 th, (venue to be announced shortly) at which time they will discuss the Sound the Alarm(smoke alarm) campaign and Business Preparedness. We will be having our annual Business Expo at The Huntington Hilton on October 25 th; please book your table space and sponsorship early.

Please don't forget to check our website: www.MelvilleChamber.org to find details about all the events planned for the month ahead, along with the venues and times.

Hope you can take some time to enjoy all the local places and attractions that make Long Island a great place to celebrate summer. I'm going to keep working on my tan!

Best regards,

Your President-David Gustin
