Bethlehem Chamber Chair
The weather outside may have been frightful, but Christmas City was certainly delightful! What an incredible Season we had here in Bethlehem, as countless visited our City to make their Holiday as bright as that Star that represents us! Simply an incredible job done by all the volunteers that make this time of year a huge success, all whilst bringing the spotlight not only to our Historic District, but also our booming Southside Arts District as well. It’s hard to believe that we have now officially entered 2020, and guess what? It’s the perfect time for you to get more involved in our Community! There are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved and show your support, and there’s no time like the present. You needn’t look far to find a great opportunity for volunteering your time, or for sponsoring an event if that’s more your speed. Our Chamber reach is pretty incredible, and one that you most certainly should take advantage of. Just one of those membership perks is having the opportunity to be recognized as our BethleGEM, which will continue into 2020, where
we will highlight an existing business in Bethlehem while continuing to redefine what a true partnership looks like!
Our January BethleGEM is The Steel Beam! Like an art gallery, Steel Beam provides customers with a curated selection of handcrafted inspiration, fine detailed designs, and creative artistry- giving a nod to Bethlehem’s glorious past with a modern fresh approach to boutique shopping. Steel Beam has developed an eye for fine details and great design, giving their patrons an abundant selection from which to choose. Creative juices flow from their working studio, where you can watch some of their incredible treasures come to life. Look for a new location in the near future, and be sure to visit Steel Beam’s incredible team- you won’t be disappointed that you did!
Let’s make 2020 our most successful year yet- hold true to those resolutions, help as many people as you can, and be in the “I” in Community! Here’s to a great year!
