Year of Dining is made possible in part to the generosity of
Chamber Showcase: Great Local Television in Malden

The Chamber Showcase is back filming at Urban Media Arts (UMA). With host and Chamber Board member Lisa O’Loughlin, this show features a wide range of topics important to Chamber members. From promoting the Summer Festivals, to introducing new members, to sharing member news and milestones, the Chamber showcase keeps you connected—and entertained.

A new feature of the Chamber Showcase is the Member Showcase Shout Out. Do you want to give a shout out to a member? Or maybe you want to give a shout out to yourself? Lisa O’Loughlin will do the shout outs at the beginning of each show. This past show, Lisa did shout outs to members who have recently helped her: UMA, Exchange Street Bistro, Bobby C’s, and 110 Grill. This is yet another way the Malden Chamber of Commerce supports its members.

Here is the video of the most recent show featuring Coleman Nee of Triangle, Inc. talking about its 50th Year of doing good work for people in our community with disabilities.

Congratulations to Malden Graduates!
Through the generosity of Chamber members, the Malden Chamber was proud to salute 3 Malden graduates with scholarships. We awarded scholarships to students from Malden High School, Mystic Valley Regional Charter School, and Malden Catholic High School. We are sure these young people will go on to achieve great things!
Summer Festivals continue! Please plan to visit the fun on July 24th, August 7th and August 21st. Art, game, music, food and fun. Don’t miss this! 
One note: The Car Show, originally scheduled for August 21st, will be rescheduled for a date in the fall. Stay tuned!
