Join the Chamber Netwalking Group!
Look out for new dates to be announced soon.
Do you want a chance to socialize with fellow business people, get a little exercise and have fun? This is for you! 

Since we can't meet indoors for Luncheons, the Chamber started a new program to bring people together safely.

Last Thursday we met at Hook Creek Lake in Cheesequake Park for the first meeting of The Chamber Netwalking GroupAll levels of hiking ability are welcome. It is a great networking opportunity, great exercise for your body and great for your mind to get some fresh air (all for free). We will be announcing the next meet-up date soon!

Also: Stay tuned for more announcements on exciting Virtual Events the Chamber is planning for winter.
