Dear Fellow Chamber Members,

With fall right in front of us and 2020 winding down, I have started to take some time to reflect on the challenges I have faced as a result of the COVID pandemic. There is no question that many of these same challenges will continue into 2021. The true test for us all is not if we overcome our challenges, but when and how much stronger we will become. As you have heard me say in the past, the strongest communities are the ones that persevere. With your continued support and leveraging the Chamber to help YOU be successful we WILL persevere! I continue to encourage our members to think about engaging the Chamber and allow us to help promote your business. The Chamber has a great toolbox of services to support YOU! Please take a few minutes to reach out to the Chamber and let us know what more we can do for you. Your continued feedback is very important to us.

As always, you can send me an email ( and share your thoughts about how, together, we can support each other.

Stay safe, stay healthy,

Mary Ruggiero
Lou's Lawn Care

This month's featured Ambassador is Mary Ruggiero of Lou's Lawn Care. Lou's Lawn Care joined the Lisle Area Chamber of Commerce in February 2020. Mary joined the LINCT Committee and Ambassador Committee shortly after they joined the Chamber. Being an Ambassador has enabled her to meet and brainstorm with a wonderful bunch of people who she might not have otherwise known. It is a great way to create and foster connections with others and local businesses. It has also been a great networking platform, introducing her to more immediate and surrounding businesses.

At Lou's Lawn Care, Mary is the receptionist and sales person. She answers the phones for Lou and also markets the company's services. Mary has been with Lou's Lawn Care for the past three years. Lou's Lawn Care specializes in lawn cuts, fertilizing, brush trimming, premium grade mulch and Fall and Spring cleanups.

Mary and her husband Rocky have been Lisle residents for 23 years and have two adult children and a very cute and funny Dachshund. You can often find them playing tennis, painting, cooking, enjoying a great cup of coffee, volunteering at church, or just soaking up the good outdoors. She enjoys gardening in her backyard and at the Lisle Community garden plot. Mary is also a member of Wheaton's nonprofit, Sustain DuPage, a local platform actively advocating sustainability practices throughout DuPage County. She also enjoys participating in WWOOF, World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms and taking courses through College of DuPage's continuing education division. Her favorite quote is from King Solomon, "If you wait for perfect conditions, you'll never get anything done."

You will receive access to a Yiftee online portal that you will use to redeem the cards by entering a code that the customer presents to you and the value of the transaction. You do this via the internet with the customer on the phone or in person. There’s no PoS
integration, it’s up to you to make sure that you process the cards on your Yiftee portal before completing the sale to make sure that the card is valid and shows the customer’s card balance.

Your portal allows you to run real time reports on what cards have been purchased, redeemed and are still outstanding. For more information on the gift card redemption process, please read this step-by-step guide.
