There are some Christmas wishes that can’t fit under the tree. Not everything is as easy to wrap as a Red Rider BB gun, Xbox or Barbie.
The Norristown Chamber of Commerce celebrated the end of their first year with a Holiday Mixer at Elmwood Park Zoo Tuesday night. They plan to continue their mission to empower Norristown’s business community by promoting the growth and success of members and cultivating an environment where businesses can thrive, writes Katie Kohler for The Times Herald.
It’s not exactly something that can fit into a gift bag but it is the present that could keep giving by invigorating the local economy and community.
“As we see tonight, this is definitely a need of the community,” said Chamber President Kym Ramsey. “We want to thank everyone who has been supportive of the Chamber. The first year has been very exciting in making sure people knew about us and supported the mission of the Chamber which is to support businesses and help them grow.”
Elmwood Park Zoo Public Affairs Director (and publisher of MONTCO.Today) Stan Huskey said a Norristown Chamber was a long time coming and is an organization that can benefit the small businesses of Norristown.
“Norristown doesn’t have a large commercial base like some local municipalities,” Huskey pointed out. “The members of the Chamber are all interested in promoting each other and I hope (that’s) how it evolves.”
