The Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce Celebrates 125 Years

Muskegon Metro Area News

They say, that the first person that will live to be 150 has already been born.  Can you imagine that?  Think of what they will have seen in that span of time.  The amount of history that is held in a span of even 100 years is monumental.  The amount of change, innovation, invention, process' and everything.  Even the people who will come and go over the course of a century.  It's a really long long time.  Well, the Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce has a little celebrating to do...in fact, they are sandwiched right in the middle of that 100 and 150 year mark as 2018 commemorates 125 years of advocating and assisting the Muskegon Area business community. 

Making sure the climate is good for business is the main goal of the Chamber.  If you are not in business, think about things like advocacy for the area...if a business is going to consider coming to town, they are going to check out the chamber.  Think about best practices.  What are business in need of to make their business better for their employees and our community?  Where is a good place to network and meet other who are looking to build and grow business to help provide for the next 125 years?  It's at the Chamber.  Keep in mind too...the Chamber hosts some pretty incredible events like The Muskegon Art Festival, The Lakeshore Home Expo, Business for Breakfast and more!  It's an active part of the community and made up of people who eat, sleep and breathe Muskegon!

So, let's party!! Thursday September 20th there will be a members only reception at the Muskegon Heritage Museum.  One of those networking opportunities for the membership.  For the non members, the celebration spills over to Saturday September 22nd when the Muskegon Heritage Museum will be open to the public, free of charge courtesy of the Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber Of Commerce.  You are welcome to come down and see the industry that has moved Muskegon over the years, the industry that continues to drive us and gain a little more appreacition for this wonderful place we call home.  I had a chance to sit down with Cindy Larson from the Chamber today to talk a little about the history, the mission and the events.  Take a listen.

A former broadcaster herself!  (I never knew that till today).  Cindy is always great to catch up with and find out a little more about what's going on at the Chamber and around town.  If you're a member of the Chamber, don't miss the event Thursday at the Muskegon Heritage Museum.  If you are up for a tour and would like the Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber to treat you and the family, their give back to you as a thanks for 125 years of success is Saturday September 22nd.  Please, show your support by attending those events.
