Dear OBENCC Board,
I am proud and honored to have represented the chamber at this morning’s town board meeting where I led everyone in the pledge of allegiance and received a citation on behalf of the OBEN Chamber of Commerce for our contribution to the community. I said some kind words about supervisor Saladino for stepping up to the plate and assuming his new role and made known that we are extremely grateful for the incredible honor.
I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and contributions and hope you are enjoying your time off, I look forward to reconvening with you in August!
