Weekly Newsletter - January 22, 2020
From the desk of Mary Wilbur
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Greetings, Tri-State Chamber of Commerce Members and Sponsors-

As I pondered this, my first “weekly update” installment, this quote seemed quite fitting, not only because we as a nation honored Dr. King on Monday, but because we as a Chamber are moving forward into a new chapter.
Though certainly not crawling forward, we (your new Board) are committed to being thoughtful and diligent in the process of delegating many responsibilities that had been undertaken by our recently resigned Officers and Director.
For those of you who were able to attend the Annual Meeting, graciously and spectacularly hosted by Sponsor Geer , we hope you had a great time, and we thank you for your feedback, encouragement and support.
For those who were unable to attend, please welcome your new Board of Directors:
President: Mary Wilbur
Treasurer: Jean Saliter
Secretary: Marie Castagna
Director: Linda Robertson
Director: Marlane White
Director: Danielle Stevenson
As we talked about at the meeting, we know we have big shoes to fill and we are eager to help lead TSC into the new decade! We appreciate and encourage your thoughts, ideas, suggestions and participation . This is YOUR Chamber! Please help us make it work better for you: encourage non-members to join; welcome and support new members; attend and/or volunteer to assist at TSC events; open the newsletter, then go out and support your fellow members at their events. It all matters.
Be sure to check in on the “weekly update” for updates about how the Board is progressing on getting all the new pieces into place, to see what’s happening in our communities, and more…
Cheers to New Beginnings!
Onward & Upward,
Mary

Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families.

Thanksgivings for Life and Love

Spanish and Latin American Secular and Sacred Music

Crescendo’s February 1 and 2 concerts, Thanksgivings for Life and Love , illustrate a parallel between spiritual issues set to music by Spanish Renaissance masters, and social justice and human rights matters expressed musically in a merging of folklore themes, popular songs and classical contemporary works by famous 20 th century Latin American composers.

TOM SHACHTMAN: FOUNDING FATHERS
Tariffs, taxes on the wealthy, the national debt, regional disparities, keeping manufacturing on these shores, our leaders’ private vs. public interests—these were issues present at the birth of this country that retain startling relevance in today’s world.

When it comes to selling your home, most sellers vacate the premises during a showing or open house. But there may be instances where you, the seller, are present and are asked by a potential buyer, "Why are you selling your house?" It's a pretty common question from home buyers, and although you might think your response is innocent, this is one of the diciest questions you can answer. Why? Because any response you give could be used against you and cause the buyer to question if they will have the same issue.
Author Mickie-Ann Budny
walks you through this interesting question.

I don't know about you but I have warm weather on my mind.

Survive the Drive, as a not-for-profit, depends on our donors to help bring our message of vehicle driver safety to our families and communities.
Survive the Drive has been a beneficiary of many charitable events in the past and we are hoping to recruit you, our supporters, to reach out to your local car clubs, car show organizers, motorcycle clubs . . . You could host a Paint & Sip or a Bar-B-Que. We've had many successful events but we wouldn't be here, since 1996, without your support.
We have just scheduled our first charitable event for this summer. Its going to be exciting and enlightening. I have a few details to work out before I share the event with you so keep an eye out for my next email.

I hope you all had the most joyful of holidays.

Come on Spring !
