November 2016

True to the theme, the 107th Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner was a "timeless" event!  Over 300 Chamber members and their guests enjoyed an engaging evening by the lake at the Emerson Park Pavilion.  In addition to the opportunity to see other people in the business community, guests also enjoyed a delicious meal and lively auctions.  Those present were able to hear from Tracy Verrier, Executive Director, and Ryan Pine, Board President, reporting on the state of the Chamber and to vote in new Board Members.   The night was also a chance to mark the milestones of several area businesses: The Citizen, Wegmans, Seward House Museum, and the Cayuga Museum.  Michael Trapani, President of Jacobs Press, was honored with the 2016 Chair's Award for individual contributions to the Cayuga County business community. 
The Chamber thanks its sponsors and the dinner's organizing committee, and invites you to see them listed in the program (link below).  Please use the link below to view the evening's slideshow showcasing Cayuga County's timeless economic heritage, and subscribe to our YouTube Channel.  It was a wonderful night and we look forward to celebrating the 108th with you next year!
