Joseph HowellDear <<First Name>>,

June was a challenging month for our community. The shootings at Pulse in Orlando broke our hearts. Friends knew friends who were in the night club that night. We are not a community of strangers but a community that strives to show respect for all, constantly show compassion, and work toward greater equality for everybody.

Throughout the tragedy we have been inspired by the many ways our community has pulled together to support and help one another. In the Chamber's corner of the world, we had record attendance at last month's Breakfast and Out & About. We exchanged hugs, laughs, tears, business info. Together we are strong. We will keep on creating that network of connection that makes our community so resilient.

Thank you to everyone who shows up, in all the ways that you do. Your presence matters. Your participation matters. Your success matters. 

Yours in service, 
B. Joseph Howell
Board President

P.S. Remember that everyone can now RSVP for Breakfast and the Out & Abouts through our website! Your confirmation email will contain a link to pay for your breakfast if you owe a balance.
