“All members and prospective members are encouraged to attend,” said Nancy Ockrin, chamber co-chairwoman. “This is a chance to network with old friends and meet new ones. The business community, local non-profits and invested community-minded individuals have been working well together for the past two years for the benefit of Crown Point and surrounding locale.
“We are here for you,” Ockrin said. “This is a labor of love and our desire is to simply continue to promote all the benefits and beauty of living in this section of the Adirondacks.”
The chamber slogan is “Building a Bridge to a Strong and Dynamic Community,” which was adopted during the construction of the new Lake Champlain Bridge. The Crown Point chamber was formed two years ago while the bridge was being built.
The group has two new officers this year — Cindy Bodette as treasurer and Wendy Terbeek as secretary.
”We continue to grow,” Ockrin said, ”and most recently welcomed Adirondack Dental Health Associates, Wagon Wheel Restaurant, Lakeside Regional Church and Mountain Petroleum.”
