Western Lehigh Chamber Chair
First, thanks to Santa, meLVin from the Phantoms and Radley from the Lehigh Valley Zoo, and to all of you who came to our holiday luncheon at Brookside Country Club. There was an abundance of raffle prizes donated by our generous volunteers and businesses, which helped us raise money for the East Penn scholarship fund and the Western Le- high Community Grant fund. Hopefully, you came away with one of the great prizes! As always, the Emmaus High School Chorale did a tremendous job and put everyone in the holiday spirit.
The South Whitehall Township Tree and Bridge Lighting Ceremony in early December was a spectacular community event to kick off the holiday season, and we hope you were able to stop by Covered Bridge Park for pictures with Santa, live music, hot cocoa and every- thing else that the event offered. The Township Department of Parks and Recreation does a really tremendous job with that event every year, and we are thankful to have it in our community!
Now that January is here, we start to think about our goals for the coming year. Whether it’s a desire to grow your team, delegate more, be a better communicator, improve your digital presence, create a succession plan or any number of other possible goals for your business, it is true that a goal without a plan is just a wish. If there is anything that we can do as volunteers with the Chamber to help you formulate a plan to reach those goals, please contact us. It is possible through the vast number of Chamber connections, that we may be able to connect you with someone or something that can provide you exactly what you need. As an example, if you are looking to recruit and add to your team, you might consider the Parkland High School job fair coming up on Thursday, February 27, 2020. If your business is interested in setting up a booth to edu- cate and recruit students, contact Alison McPeek at McPeekA@ParklandSD.org.
Wishing you a happy and successful 2020!
