                      President, Garden City Chamber of Commerce

                      The mindset of the Chamber Officers and Directors has
                      been to promote our projects in such a way that our mem-
                      ber businesses benefit in synergy with our Garden City resi-
                      dents. A win-win mentality has to be the basis of anything
                      in which the Chamber engages. Our new Friend of the
Chamber Merchant Card typifies this thinking. For a twenty dollar investment
(over two years) you can benefit from discounts and promotions that will pay for
the card many times over. From personal experience I am happy to report that
it works! Recently, at a family birthday celebration at the Garden City Hotel,
I saved $88.00 with the Friend card. This discount made an already sparkling
evening at the very classy Polo Grille, at the Garden City Hotel, an even nicer
You can order your own Friend card directly from the Chamber office, from
civic groups like Kiwanis, or from Russ Ciolli at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. Log onto
our website, to view the Garden City merchants
and businesses who have already signed on to participate in the program. It’s a
great deal for the residents and a great incentive to keep your business dollars
right here in Garden City.
Franklin Avenue Streetscape Improvements – The Garden City Chamber
Board has been closely monitoring the annual Village Budget Hearings and
work sessions and are happy to report that the streetscape improvements on
Franklin Avenue, north of Eleventh Street are finally being addressed, The pre-
liminary plans are a good start and the Chamber Board expects to have more
input toward refining those plans. Our Board understands that this project has
to be considered in context with other important Village Capital needs, but we
also know how critical the sidewalk improvements, planting areas and lay-by
parking on Franklin Avenue are to the final development of the northern gate-
way to our Village. With completion of Alfred Weissman’s reconstruction of the
former Saks property entering its final phase, its vital that these improvements
are made. No one can dispute the great effect that the original improvements on
Franklin and Seventh Street have had in attracting great new businesses to
Garden City. We will continue to urge the Village Board of Trustees to adopt
this project into the 2008 Capital Budget.
2008 Pineapple Ball – If you haven’t attended our premiere Chamber event of
the year in the past, I would urge you to do so on April 18 at the Garden City
Hotel. In a few short years, The Pineapple Ball has become one of the social
events in Garden City. Besides the great cocktail hour and dinner put forth by
the hotel staff, we have a great dance band and a terrific, interesting, value added
raffle and auction, plus great networking Garden City style! We are also fortu-
nate to have great Honorees, including Citizen of the Year – Gerard
Lundquist; Community Achievement winner – Dennis Donnelly; and Garden
City Business Person of the Year – Stuart Lubow of Community National
Bank. When you see most of the guests still around at closing time you’re at
The Pineapple Ball! Join me on April 18th !
