Happy 4th of July Lisle! Summer is here and things have heated up. I hope you enjoyed the Lisle Uncorked Wine Event, the Kiwanis Club of Lisle’s Car Show, strolled the downtown and had a chance to see the Warhol themed scenery. Our downtown is a great place to be this time of year.

Vacations are in full swing, summer sports are happening and the real estate market in town is going strong. It is a little lopsided with more buyers than there are homes on the market. This will create a longer spring and summer market than usual. Why? Because there will be unsatisfied buyers still looking for that special place to call home.

July has another big Chamber event happening. It is the Annual Golf Outing at Seven Bridges Golf Club on July 18th. I hope you sign up and take advantage of the Early Bird prices before the rates go up. There are spots left to advertise your business. This is a great opportunity so don’t pass it up. Contact the Chamber for more information.

Chirag Darji

This month's featured Ambassador is Chirag Darji. Chirag is the Owner/CEO of DnD Transfers, a payment processing and merchant services provider for all businesses. He personally oversees each account, from the initial stages to the application process and he is the main point of contact for any support related items for his merchants. Chirag has been in this business for 2 years.

Chirag has recently joined the Lisle Area Chamber. In addition to the Ambassador Committee, Chirag is involved with the LINCT Committee. Since he has recently joined the Ambassador Committee, it has been a fun experience for him so far. He has been able to meet a lot of people and the networking opportunities continue to grow. He is working on networking, building his brand, and sharing with everyone that he is in the business of payment processing to put money back into owners pockets.

Chirag lives in Woodridge with his wife Palak, and they have 2 small children, Dhruval (5) and Divya (2). When Chirag is not working, he loves to explore parks and recreational activites and focus on building a balance in life between fun and education for his kids. Chirag's believes success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself. Success will never be determined by position or status, but rather the obstacles you overcome to achieve it.
