Port Henry The Moriah Chamber of Commerce, making an effort to become more active in the community, will host an after-hours business mixer.
The event, which will include cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, will be at the King’s Inn in Port Henry Thursday, March 21, 6 to 7:30 p.m. The cost is $3 a person.
“As part of a revamping of the Moriah Chamber of Commerce and our cooperation with area towns, the chamber is hosting a business mixer,” Tim Bryant, Moriah chamber president, said. “Westport, taking the initiative, invited us to their holiday mixer last December, which was well supported by a large turnout. It is now Moriah’s turn to play host and maintain our momentum.
“At the mixer we will share a summary of our current projects and the direction we are heading,” he added. “We would like to hear from people, which areas they think we should focus on to help us grow. The mixer is a good opportunity to talk with other business owners in a relaxed environment; sharing ideas, problems and solutions.”
People planning to attend are asked to RSVP by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Bryant at 618-6757.
The Moriah Chamber of Commerce is conducting a membership drive this month.
Capitalizing on the momentum created by the Edge Group and PH7, the chamber is planning a number of new initiatives in 2013 that will help support/benefit the community. Businesses and individuals are encouraged to join.

After-hours business mixers are common for chambers of commerce. The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce holds one each month, rotating the location between member businesses.
The Ticonderoga chamber’s mixers provide a networking forum for area business people in addition to showcasing the site of the host as well as promoting the door prize sponsors. All area business people, chamber members and their employees are invited to attend.
The Moriah Chamber of Commerce was formed to strengthen area businesses and promote the community.
The chamber sponsors Champ Day in Port Henry, an annual local festival the first Saturday in August honoring the mythical Lake Champlain monster, a Labor Day celebration, a fishing-shanty raffle and other events throughout the year.
The chamber’s Main Street program also works to improve and maintain community resources.
