July news & updates
Getting Back in the Game… 

On Friday, August 7th Pocono Farms Country Club will be host to this year’s Pocono Chamber golf tournament. Please join us for some fun as we get back on the golf course, enjoy one another, and patronize an awesome golf club as we come together to support the Chamber’s efforts. We are blessed to have such amazing members and thank you all for being by our side in these unchartered waters. It’s going to be a fun and safe day thanks to the planning of our golf committee (Michael Ostrowski, Phillip Pope, Dr. Marcia Welsh, Joe Ronco, Richard John, and Katrina Weithman) and the amazing staff at Pocono Farms. 

Now it is certainly time to re-build our downtowns, communities, businesses and Nation – we can all do this together with open hearts and lots of love.  

We look forward to seeing you on August 7th and appreciate your continued partnership and support!
