Labor Day--Celebrating the Contributions of the American Worker
Our members have been busy as they work to make Chester County a great place to live and do business!  There's much to celebrate in the last month alone.  Thanks to everyone who supported our newest businesses by attending recent ribbon cuttings and the Business After Hours.  We also hosted two successful workshops taught by the Small Business Development Center's highly-qualified staff.  Don't forget our upcoming Town Hall Meeting on September 22 and our Chamber Classic golf tournament on October 13th.  Working together works!  What a perfect way to celebrate the importance of Labor Day.
Thanks to Chamber member Bill Marion for many of the beautiful photographs!
