Chamber Executive Committee to Meet Wednesday
During July and August, the Chamber’s Board of Directors does not meet. The Executive Committee of the Board does meet, however and that meeting will take place on Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. at the Chamber Office. Beside taking care of routine business and approving new members, the Executive Committee will discuss a variety of issues related to rebranding the organization and setting a strategy for member recruitment. Any Chamber Member who would like to address the committee should contact Joe Hurd by noon Tuesday at (814) 943-8151.

Farm-City Committee to Hold 2nd Annual “Give-Back Day”
For the second consecutive year, the Farm City Committee of the Blair County Chamber will hold a “Give-Back Day” that will take place on July 28th at Ritchey’s Dairy in Martinsburg. Single scoop ice cream cones will be available all day for just one dollar. Allied Milk Producers will again be partnering with the Chamber. Ritchey’s will donate the $1 per cone as well as 25% of all sales that day to provide milk for the American Rescue Workers Food Bank. For further information on this promotion, contact Stacy Hoover at (814) 943-8151 or email her at shoover@blairchamber.com
