We set our clocks back one hour on Sunday, November 2 as Daylight Saving Time ends.  This is also a great time to remember to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and to make sure your carbon monoxide detector is working correctly.  These two little steps can make the difference in the event of an emergency.


On Thursday, November 13 the Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Erie County Clerk’s Office to host a Thank A Vet Discount Program Outreach. Honorable discharged veterans from any branch of service of the United States Armed Forces can stop in at the AppleTree Business Park, 2875 Union Road, Main Entrance from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm and have a Thank A Vet Discount Card issued.  Veterans must bring their original discharge papers.  For more information about the Thank A Vet Discount Program, contact the Erie County Clerk’s Office at 858-6985.


Join us on Friday, November 14 for our November Membership Luncheon, which will be held at 12 noon at the Holiday Inn Buffalo Airport, 4600 Genesee Street.  Our guest speaker will be Ted Black, President, Buffalo Sabres. Please call the Chamber Office at 684-5838 by Friday, November 7 to make your reservations


Open enrollment time is upon us!  Our Open Enrollment Meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 19 at 5:30 pm.  The meeting will be held at the Cheektowaga Senior Center, 3349 Broadway.  Representatives from Independent Health, Univera Healthcare and Community Blue will be at the meeting to discuss the changes for our health insurance plans for 2015.  Representatives from Northwest Savings Bank and Lake Shore Savings Bank will also be there to discuss Health Savings Accounts. This is a must attend meeting for all employers and employees who have or are interested in insurance coverage through the Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce.   Open Enrollment will be effective January 1, 2015 and any changes to your current health insurance coverage must be submitted to our office by Friday, December 12, 2014.  Please call 684-5838 to RSVP for this important meeting.


In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to encourage people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement and more people are taking part than ever before. This year Small Business Saturday is Saturday, November 29.  We encourage everyone to support our local businesses and shop local!


As we prepare for the holiday season, we ask that you consider a sponsorship for the Spirit of Sharing Dinner, which will be held on Tuesday, December 2 at the Cheektowaga Senior Center.  The Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce and the Intercouncil of Organizations cosponsor this dinner for the residents of our local skilled facilities.  It is a holiday event for some very special people and you can help brighten the spirit of our guests with just a $22 sponsorship.  A $22 sponsorship enables us to treat one resident to an evening of great food, entertainment, favors and even a visit from Santa Claus!  Sponsorship forms are included in your November Newsletter or at the Chamber Office. We are also looking for donations for gift bags for our guests.  Please contact the Chamber Office if you are able to provide items (50 minimum) for the gift bags.  Call Diane at 684-5838 to find out how you can help make the holidays a little brighter for some very special people.


Make your voice heard on November 4 and vote!  And, remember to take a few minutes this Veterans Day to thank all our veterans for their service and sacrifices and continue to pray for all of our soldiers and veterans.


On behalf of our Chairman of the Board, Rebecca Monte, and the Board of Directors, I would like to thank you for your support of the Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce and wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!  God bless.
