Momentum Magazine November 2018 Edition - Page 2

President’s Message C e l e br a t i n g Y ou! Here’s a little test – without looking at your phone or calendar, what were the most important things you accomplished in the last month? It’s a bit of a blur for most of you, isn’t it? We live in such a fast-paced world where it is often difficult to remember what we did last month, last week, or even yesterday! Okay, maybe that last one is just me. This is why it is so important at times to slow down and acknowledge or, more importantly, celebrate our accomplishments. Here at the Chamber we like to showcase our members’ significant milestones – and with some 1,400 of you, there are a lot of chances to do just that. I ask you to take note of the businesses and institutions lauded in this issue (and all issues) of Momentum. Starting a business is one thing, but sustaining that business over time, through economic, social and technological changes is very difficult. Five, 10, 20, 50, or even 100+ years in business is something that should and must be celebrated! If your business has a milestone coming up, let us know so we can join your celebration! Contact Stephanie Longo, director of marketing and communications, at slongo@ scrantonchamber.com. Now get out the candles and party hats! (I hope there will be ice cream!)
