Letter from the President


Hello Members,

Photography by Samantha J. WaltonHoping everyone's summer is treating you well!  I wanted to let you know we have new email addresses for all our
Chamber Officers (see below). Please use these instead of our personal emails to prevent your email from getting buried in with everything else.  Our Chamber website also reflects these new email addresses.

You might have seen our website’s new tab called MEET OUR OFFICERS.  We are in the process of adding pictures and bios for each officer. We thought this was a great way for you to know who each of us are, where we come from, what we do and to give you a face to go with the name!

I will be sending out the July/August Newsletter the first week of August. With so many people on vacation in the month of July, I felt a July/August Newsletter would be more beneficial than two separate ones.

Mark your calendar for our next mixer on August 12 at the Allard Center YMCA in Goffstown, NH. This will be a catered event by the Pool. We will keep you posted on the event as the date gets closer.

Update ~ Business Phone Directory 2014

Promote Your Business with Weare ChamberThanks to everyone who has indicated they would like to be a part of the upcoming Weare Area business directory.  It’s going to be a great directory and should provide current homeowners as well as those new to the area with great information!

We had hoped to have the directory out by now, but unfortunately, there are a number of incomplete forms and/or businesses who have not yet paid.  We are in the process of contacting those businesses directly.   In addition, the Board decided unanimously that, in order for the directories to get the biggest bang for our buck, we needed to hold off until September for delivery.  This will ensure everyone is back from their vacations and summer activities.

Danielle here from History Channel's American Pickers. As you may know, my job is to send Mike and Frank on the road with rare and exciting leads. But let me tell you, finding killer leads is hard work and takes a great deal of time…so how about you help a sister out!

 We're heading to New England soon, looking for hidden private collections for Mike and Frank. If you're sitting on a honey hole or know someone who is oozing rusty gold, give us a call at 855-OLD-RUST or e-mail us at americanpickers@cineflix.com and tell us all about it!
