MARCH 2022 ~ Newsletter
While cold and snowy, February was a busy month for the Malden Chamber of Commerce.
We made new connections with Chamber members from neighboring cities in our first Multi Chamber networking event of the year.
And, our most anticipated event of the year, the State of the City, was truly memorable. Thank you to Mayor Gary Christenson and his staff for making us all proud to live or work in Malden. Did you miss this event? Click here to watch the show.
