CROWNPOINT-The fledgling Crown Point Chamber of Commerce is online.
The chamber, which formed earlier this year, has created a website - crownpointny.org - to promote its activities and members.
The internet presence realizes the group's first goal under the leadership of a website committee.
"Committee members Paul Burns, Jen Palmer and Bonnie Sprinkle have stepped up to the plate to be part of what will be an ongoing evolving process," Nancy Ockrin, chamber co-chair, said.
About two dozen people attended the chamber's May meeting at the Knapp Senior Citizens Center.
"This is again an opportunity to meet each other, some for the first time, for continued networking, and keeping our goals current and focused," Ockrin said. "We were also pleased to welcome our newest members: The Crown Point Postal Service and The Crown Point Fire Department to our growing list of charter members."
Upcoming events such as the Memorial Day celebration, the June 30 Star Line Rhythm Boys band concert and the town's need for beautification were discussed.
Chamber members volunteered to join the Memorial Day committee. Other members decided to partner with the beautification committee the town has already started.
"It is great to see the townspeople using their talents, stepping up to the plate and helping where help is needed," Joe Bodette, chamber co-chair, said.
Donations for door prizes were made by The Woodland Coffee and Tea Room, Country Florists and Norm's Bait and Tackle.
The group's next meeting will at 6:30 p.m. on June 7 at the Knapp Center. All current and prospective businesses, community groups, and individuals in the Crown Point area are encouraged to attend.
