    Charlotte Sun Column – November 14, 2017

    November 14, 2017

         The public is invited to attend our 21st Annual Holiday Celebration during the Third Wednesday Coffee tomorrow.  More than 30 members will decorate the tables with a holiday theme and many will have give-a-ways and yummies as they showcase their products and services.  Please join us from 7:15 to 8:30 a.m. at the Event Center and get some ideas for your holiday shopping list.

         On Thurs., Congressman Rooney’s Mobile Office will be at the District Office, 226 Taylor St., Punta Gorda from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. for mobile office hours.  Caseworkers will be on hand to help with any trouble you may be having with a federal agency (not state or local issues).    

         The Nov. Business Card Exchange is Thursday at Busey Bank in Port Charlotte.  Please bring plenty of business cards to hand out and a small gift to promote your business and get some added name and face recognition.

         Our 39th Annual Christmas Parade is Sat., Dec. 9.  We’ll step off at noon from the Charlotte Performing Arts Center (next to Charlotte High), head north on Taylor and disband at the Event Center.  The reviewing stand will be in front of Centennial Bank.   For more information, please visit our website or call our Port Charlotte office at 627-2222.

         The “Lighting of the Village” is Sat., at 5:30 p.m. at Fishermen’s Village.  The Downtown Holiday Celebration and Tree Lighting will be held on Fri., Dec. 1 at 5 p.m. in the City Marketplace property.  Punta Gorda Founders’ Week is December 1 through December 7.  Visit www.puntagordafoundersweek.com for a schedule of events

         If you’re looking for something to do with your children over the Thanksgiving break, why not visit LaunchMyCareerFL.org, a collaborative effort between the Florida Chamber Foundation, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and Strada Education Network.  It’s an online tool that helps students determine their ideal majors and jobs. This interactive website provides information on programs at public institutions and training programs in Florida.

         We are officially in the “there is something every night of the week” time of year.  Please visit the community calendar at www.charlottecountychamber.org and read Business Online every Monday (also on our website) so you’re up-to-date on everything happening in this happening community.

         Please drop off a new, unwrapped toy(s) for Toys for Tots in our Port Charlotte office and for the Fresh Jersey Tomatoes 2nd Annual Toy Drive in our Punta Gorda office.  It’s so nice to have two offices to serve the community twice.  Thank you!
