Yorktown Chamber The President’s Column June 2019

What a great night for the Yorktown Chamber of Commerce. Once again a lavish cocktail reception was held on May 30th as we celebrated “Yorktown’s Best of. . .Awards” Cocktail Reception at Vittoria Z’ on the Lake. It was our pleasure to honor Mary Fellbush of Absolute Flooring of Yorktown, Inc. as the 2019 Business Person of the Year, Breslin Realty Development Corp. as the 2019 Business of the Year and Drug Crisis in our Backyard as the 2019 Organization of the Year. Our digital journal was displayed on a large screen during this event and was sent to each member of the Chamber as well as being on the Chamber’s website until next year.

Come out on June 8 and cheer us on at our annual “Kids Vs the Cops” Baseball Fundraiser at the Granite Knoll Field from 5 to 9 pm with a special guest appearance by Dwight Gooden. The opening ceremony will take place at 6:00pm. Food, refreshments, music, and a DJ will all add to the family fun night out. ALL the proceeds go to local families that have children with life threatening diseases. The money is used to send the entire family to Camp Sunshine in Maine for a week of respite, hope and fun. Free vendor booths are offered on a first come first served basis. It’s not too late to get a booth. Call the Chamber office at 914-245-4599.
