January 2020 News
Message from the Director:

Dear Members,

I hope you are enjoying the mild winter we are having so far. If you didn’t get to attend our holiday party this year at Webster’s Bistro, it was truly a great time. The food was delicious, and Joe Bolognese entertained us throughout the evening with some wonderful holiday music.  

We have begun to work on our new events and programs for 2020. Our Scotch Bowling for Charity event is taking place on January 28th from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the Tonawanda Bowling Center, and the winners pick a charity of choice to receive a portion of the proceeds. Please call to reserve your spot as soon as possible. The cost is $15.00 per person and includes pizza and pop. Also, our Twin Cities Expo is taking place on Saturday, April 18th at the Wurlitzer. This expo will combine both the Twin Cities Expo and the Women’s Expo. We will have more information on booth rentals coming out shortly.

Again, if you have not joined our text messaging service to become a VIP member, please text CCTONA to 57838. This is a great way to be reminded of the events and meetings the Chamber is holding, as well as being entered in our drawings.

We look forward to seeing you all in the new year!

The Office of the Chamber of Commerce of the Tonawandas.
