The Exeter Chamber of Commerce met on Wednesday, July 13th at noon in the conference room at Horizontal Boring.
The chamber is comprised of multiple Exeter businesses and sponsors many activities in the community. They are most well known for their free annual pancake feed each March. They also sponsor the annual Easter Egg hunt, visit with Santa and drawings for turkeys and hams in the fall.
Currently the chamber is discussing the direction the group wants to move in during the next year. Several ideas including transformation to a community club were discussed at the meeting. The group also discussed a rallying event for the community of Exeter along with the challenges that come maintaining a yearly event.
The input was positive about including more members of the Exeter community by creating a community club rather than just business members.
The chamber members plan to meet again on Wednesday, August 3 for another meeting to continue the discussion. This would be the time for all chamber members to give their input on any changes for the future. The chamber would also welcome communication from community members. If you are not able to attend the meeting but want to share your ideas please contact Alan Emshoff, John Graham or Greg Yound.
