Wishing you peace & joy this season.
May you have a very Merry Christmas and
a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!  
A Note from the Director
As this busy year nears the end, I would like to thank you for the continued support to our organization. 

The Greater Rostraver Chamber of Commerce is successful, sustaining and growing because of you, our loyal members and followers. Throughout the year, you have supported our programs and events through sponsorships, donations, volunteerism and attendance, and for that, I am appreciative and grateful.
With your support during 2016, the GRC held six special events (Taste of the Town, Recognition Dinner, Falls Classic, Ladies Night Out, Rostraver Christmas Celebration, Annual Christmas Party),  partnered with Event Services on the Mon Valley Home Show and Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation on August Fun Fest. We held educational events, breakfast sessions, lunch meetings and fun networking gatherings like the Turkey Bowl, Mini Golf Tournament and Bocce with the Board of Directors from the GRC & MVRCC. 

The GRC welcomed 51 new members, conducted 11 ribbon cuttings, strived to strengthen partnerships with long-time, loyal members and visited with twelve businesses to recognize them as Business of the Month recipients.  We issued four scholarships that were awarded to students attending California University of Pa, Douglas Education Center, Westmoreland County Community College and Belle Vernon Area High School.

We upgraded our website making it mobile-friendly, enhanced our social media presence on Facebook and Twitter, maintained a collaboration with our print media partners and offered effective low and no cost promotional advertising in this weekly electronic newsletter. I am currently working on programs, and business sessions for 2017 that will add value to the benefits of membership. In addition, our annual community events will be continued and enhanced.

So many of you are on the “good list” this year, but I must give a special shout out to the GRC Board of Directors for their leadership, commitment and confidence in my abilities, for their involvement with our events, and to giving of their time, treasure and talent, no questions asked, whenever needed. I am honored to work with such a dedicated group of individuals.

It is my pleasure to serve each of you, and I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Kindest Regards,
Gina C. Lynn
