The President's Letter

Joe Poisal
2018 President

I’m pleased to report that there will be a new gourmet market coming to 818 Frederick Road! We haven’t had a grocery market on Frederick Road in decades, and it appears that it will be beautifully done. Catonsville residents Dan Zakai and Patrick Baldwin expect to start construction in March. They have reached out on Facebook asking for suggestions on what to carry in their market. You may want to ding them on Facebook under 818 Market. Speaking of Facebook, I would invite you to like our Chamber page, this is a great way to see some of the happenings in our community.

I’m also pleased to report that Blue Iris Florist is coming back to Catonsville. After a devastating fire, Allison Glascock is moving her business to 918 Frederick Road after operating at a temporary location in Arbutus.

Our Chamber board attended a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Event Center at UMBC which cost $85 million dollars. I can tell you first hand that the multi-use Event Center is amazing. Be sure to attend a basketball game the next time the Retrievers play at home.

Our Network the “Ville networking series kicked off the season at the Catonsville satellite office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. Kendall Skirven hosted the event, and attendees were able to speak about their businesses. Kendall has been a Catonsville real estate agent for over 40 years! The next Network the “Ville event will be held on Monday, March 12 at 5:30 pm at the UMBC Events Center. Please come out and make some new friends.

Our Outstanding Teachers Awards ceremony is coming up in April. If you know of a worthy Baltimore County teacher in either our public or private schools that you would like to nominate, please find the form on our website. Teachers are such a vital part of our lives, so be sure to help us recognize them!

As your new President, I want to ensure that the Chamber membership knows that my full-time position is with Caton Auto Clinic. We are a family owned automotive mechanical repair facility located across from Home Depot on Rt. 40. We started back in 1975 with six service bays and we have grown to our present size of thirty-six service bays. We are here to help you whether you have company vehicles, or personal ones. Please reach out to me if I can be of service.
