With the start of a brand-new year comes the launching of a brand-new website for the Harbor Country Chamber of Commerce.
Chamber members received a sneak peek of the website at their annual meeting last October. During the first After-Hours Mixer of 2017 at New Buffalo Hardware Thursday, Jan. 5, Executive Director Vicki Gudas announced that the website can now be viewed at harborcountry.org. She added that they are more than willing to help any members with any problems they may encounter while accessing the website.
“We’re still working out some kinks, but are ready to provide any assistance you need with managing your profile, posting events, or just finding stuff,” she said.
In other 2017 news, Gudas mentioned that they’re getting ready to start layout and production for this year’s Harbor Country Guide, and she reminded everyone to place their ads and review their listings. Gudas said they’d continue to host their free of charge Lunch and Learn series with Harbor Country Rotary in the coming year, adding that the session taking place Wednesday, Jan. 11, will focus on New Buffalo Township’s Glassman Park and Wednesday, Jan. 18, they’ll be learning about Food Hubs and Food Sheds with Mariel Borgman from MSU Extension.
Gudas also gave recognition to a new Chamber member, Reese Herrera, who has opened Redman & Co. Dog Day Care. She also welcomed Leslie Green, Market Relationship Officer at New Buffalo Savings Bank, and Hillary Knight, who will soon be taking over Dr. Jay Blackburn’s practice in New Buffalo.
