The President’s Letter

Joe Poisal
2018 President

After such a cold, and wet early spring, the warm temperatures have finally arrived! Our Sunday Farmer’s market continues to draw people from all over the area. This is a great way to purchase locally grown, organic fruits and vegetables and other delicious foods.

The warm weather is also an indication that it’s time for our Frederick Road Friday’s concert series! The concerts run from June 1st through August 31st. Our committee has decided to compliment the beer selection with Guinness! I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Guinness has opened in the Relay section of Baltimore County, and they are excited to be a part of Frederick Road Friday’s. We are also upgrading our wine selection to offer you a better-quality wine. Keep in mind that Frederick Road Friday’s is a great way to advertise your business through a sponsorship or through volunteering. Contact the Chamber office for further info.

We ended our last Network the ‘Ville for the spring season at the Five Star Frederick Credit Union, and VIM Chiropractic and Wellness Center. It’s great to learn more about our members businesses, and to network amongst fellow business owners, and professionals. After our summer break, I invite you to attend our next Network the ‘Ville to be held at Pat’s Porch, Wieland’s BBQ and You Scream Ice Cream on Sept. 10.

I would like to thank Delegate Eric Ebersole for his persistence in helping Catonsville Gourmet get their liquor license. The County had some existing laws on the books, but through local support, the County agreed to give Catonsville Gourmet the go ahead for the license.

I am pleased to announce that we have hired Caitlin Kirby to our administrative staff. Caitlin and her family reside here in Catonsville. We are very excited to have her join our team.

See you around the Ville!
