44 New Members Join Chamber in Membership Challenge
Leadership Susquehanna Valley Seeks Applicants
Seafood Fest Set
It's not very long, but boy, there sure have been changes. George Bush was President, Bob Casey was Governor, Ernie Preate was Attorney General, George Gekas was our Congressman and Jim Kelley was chairman of the Northumberland County Commissioners Commissioners.
The Chamber had 230 members, a Board of Directors of over 50 and an Executive Committee of 14. Besides me, there was one other staff person. The Daily Item was an evening paper, Sunbury Broadcasting's middle of the road station was only on AM. There was Beiter's in Sunbury, and no WalMart.
A major concern for some is the need for easy access from and to the by-pass and Sunbury to connect with Route 61. Shamokin Dam officials have expressed reservations about some of the alternatives that would accomplish the connection and work is progressing to reach consensus that will satisfy all.
The top producers were John Shipman (Mid-Penn Insurance Agency) and Dan Day (Sunbury Community Hospital) from Region 1 with $1,320 collected and Wayne Yohn (Yeager and Yohn, CPA) and Mike Molesevich (Molesevich Environmental Services) from Region 5 finished with 10 members.
In all, 21 individuals produced at least one new member. Two person teams and their new members included: Region 1 - (5) Gayle Fedder (Sunbury Broadcasting Corp.) and Gini Sears (Purdy Insurance Agency), (3) Frankie Jones (Apfelbaum Realty) and Jan Tippett (The Daily Item) and (2) Bob Zimmerman (Zimmerman Motors). Region 2's producers were (2 1/2) Barbara Fisher (Swineford National Bank) and Ed Mihalik (Attorney), (1) Jim Charles (Snyder County Trust Company) and Susan Womer (Heister House Millworks, Inc.) and (1) Steve Bilger (Swineford national Bank),. In Region 3 new members were sponsored by (4) Jan Wilson (SUN Home Health Services) and Dick Robey (North Shore Railroad) and (1) Ann Moyer (Square Diehl Realty) and Brenda Reichenbach (PG Energy). Region 4 had (1) Renate Amman (Re/Max Real Estate Team) as a sponsoring member and Region 5's other producer was (1/2) Troy Whitesel (CellularOne).
Leadership training for individuals charged with responsibilities for the future of our businesses and our communities' organizations is a challenge that is being met by today's leaders. Members are encouraged to consider nominating one or more existing middle managers, or potential managers for the future, to be considered for enrollment in the this year's class. Of course, Chamber members may even consider joining themselves or recommend the program to someone not associated with their firm.
The individual must commit to active participation in all of the sessions and be anxious to utilize new leadership skills in your business and in the community. Sponsoring firms must provide the necessary time and corporate commitment to help participants fully utilize this valuable training. Also, it is expected that the corporate sponsor provide the majority or all of the $900 tuition for Leadership Susquehanna Valley.
Questions about the program's specifics can be answered by the Guy Temple, Executive Director of Leadership Susquehanna Valley. Please call 743-4100.
The menu includes Maryland Steamed Crabs (steamed by Steve VanSant), shrimp, a dozen steamed clams for each, roast pork with filling, macaroni salad, coleslaw, fruit salad, baked beans, herbed red skinned potatoes, rolls and butter, and dessert. Draft beer, soda, iced tea and coffee are also included. The Shangri-La Campground is off Route 405, between Route 147 in Point Township and Route 45, south of Lewisburg, and the "All-You-Can-Eat" feast will run from 5:00 pm until dark, RAIN or SHINE.
The facility features a covered pavilion for eating, relaxing and enjoying reflective conversation with your friends and new acquaintances. Adjacent to the pavilion are horseshoe pits, areas for volleyball, bocci and other summer activities. A new swimming pool is also available for participants. The Committee reminds members that VERY CASUAL DRESS is appropriate and invites all to Join the Fun. PLEASE RESERVE BY JULY 30
