Happy May! Hopefully everyone celebrated (or survived) "May the 4th Be With You" and Cinco de Mayo over the weekend. Now it's time to tackle the rest of the fifth month in 2018!

Please take just a moment to click the sponsor image here and note the new sponsors we have added in the last week! Thank you to these companies willing to demonstrate their enthusiasm for what the Chamber is doing by providing financial support.

As always, members, remember to email us your news by Friday for next week's edition.

Make this a very special week!
