A WORD OF WELCOME

 

 

A Time of Change

The year 2017 is finally here, and it brings with it many exciting changes.  First, the Maywood Chamber of Commerce begins its 78th year of taking the lead in supporting, promoting and growing businesses in Maywood.  We have enjoyed such a long and rich history because we put our Members first.  Our efforts in advocacy, education, information and networking have enabled us to continue to attract new Members.  It is exciting for me to see our Members benefiting from all we do, and this year we are positioned to do even more.

The year 2017 marks two important anniversaries for Maywoodians - and for all Americans, as I think about it.  In April, our nation will commemorate President Wilson's declaration of war and America's entry into that Great War, which we now call World War I.  There are two incredible photos in the possession of the Maywood Library that show just how extensively our community was involved with the war effort during the years 1917 and 1918.

On September 10th, of this year, the Maywood Bataan Day Organization (MBDO) will observe the 75th anniversary of remembrance of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country on the Bataan peninsular, in The Philippines.

Over the years, the Chamber has worked hand-in-hand with the Village of Maywood and MBDO to honor our distinct history, and to maintain Maywood as a place where businesses can succeed and grow.  I am delighted the Chamber now has a website with which to pursue its mission all the more effectively.

As I think about it, I realize the launch of this website marks the beginning of a new era for the Chamber in terms of reaching Members and others who are interested in our organization and our community.  There will be many enhancements to the website as we go forward, but for now, we celebrate the fact that we can share even more of our village and our Members with the world.

Since many Members are fond of receiving my monthly updates, I will continue to publish and distribute the Chamber's newsletters through the post.  But, every newsletter will now be available on this website, along with links to even greater sources of information.  We hope you will enjoy the website and will support our efforts to continue to support you.

One behalf of the entire Chamber Leadership, I wish you a Happy 2017!  May it be a good and blessed year for all!

Edwin H. Walker IV
