The Chamber would like to sincerely thank our Secret Santa, Mrs. Claus and all of their Christmas angels for their tremendous generosity again this year in making the holidays special for over 140 local students. We also wish to thank Julie Gaynor, the members of the Workforce Development Committee and the Maryland Air National Guard for their assistance with gift distribution.
WORK IN ESSEX CONTINUES
Here are some photos from recent Eastern Baltimore County Task Force projects in the Essex business district. Utilizing grants from the State of Maryland and Baltimore County, we purchased 8 new trash cans, 12 new liners and installed new "no littering" signs. We also printed and hung a new Public Parking sign at the entrance to main public parking lot in the commercial district.
THANK YOU, WELCOME AND CONGRATULATIONS!
We would like to sincerely thank John Gontrum, Esq. of Whiteford, Taylor & Preston and Angela Heydt of Apple Insurance Services for their dedicated volunteer service to the Chamber's Board of Directors. Both individuals recently completed their terms on the Board, John also having served as President for two years and Immediate Past President in 2020. Both John and Angela played instrumental roles in guiding our mission with their insights and unique expertise. What both have in common is their love for this community and their commitment to the success of the Chamber. We are very grateful for the time, talent and support they brought to the Chamber, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them as active members.
We also want to welcome our new Board members - Raymarlyn Curtis from Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and Steve Levy from Potomac Pizza Grill. Both Raymarlyn and Steve were inaugurated with the rest of the Board at our Annual Meeting on January 27, 2021.
