The President's Letter

Cathy Schneider
2017 President

Letter from the President. May 2017

Your Chamber Board and Committees were hard at work again! Thanks to Linda Sauer and her committee for coordinating our 2nd Annual Southwest Networking and Trade Show Event on April19. The Catonsville Chamber and the Greater Arbutus Business Association partnered together to network, build relationships, and exchange ideas at the Arbutus Fire Hall. Thank you to all of the businesses who purchased a trade show table to showcase their business. Thank you to our in-kind sponsor Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department for the Hall. And a thank you to our local restaurants, which included Edible Arrangements, Babas, and Catonsville Gourmet for the donation of wonderful food and desserts.

I’m happy to announce another successful Network the ‘Ville Event on April 10th at my Edible Arrangements Catonsville Store. We used this opportunity to have a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to introduce our NEW Edible To Go® product line. Our attendees enjoyed samples of our NEW smoothies and frozen yogurt. In addition, we displayed and indulged in many of our yummy Edible Arrangements products, which included fresh fruit arrangements, dipped caramel apples, fruit truffles and pineapple pops. Thank you to the Chamber for your support and to the members, family and friends for attending this special day!

Mark your Calendars on May 7th for the start of BEST Farmers Market around! Our sold-out market, which is located in the parking lot of 730 Frederick Road, attracts many people from the around the area. It’s a great day to shop while listening to live music and enjoying a treat! We are excited to partner with UMBC transit, which will be providing a bus for the students and staff to this weekly event. And to Teal, chamber executive director, who continues to grow this event to benefit the Catonsville community.

Our Chamber of Commerce continues to help our members generate partnerships and relationships! Thank you to Omar Jennings, Jr. of AXA Advisors (and a Chamber board member) for inviting me to speak to college students at their annual AXA Institute. I had the honor of speaking about my business journey to these future businessmen and women.

Lastly, thanks to Oliver Arnold of MassMutual Financial Group Mid-Atlantic for creating and being the captain of a 2017 Relay for Life Chamber team for the June 10th event. If you are interested in participating in any way please email Oliver at oarnold@financialguide.com. Watch for details on the Chamber’s Facebook page.

Thank you to our Board Members and Committee Members who continue to volunteer their time to represent our Business Community.
