Nyack Chamber of Commerce 55th Anniversary Celebration
The Chamber's 55th Anniversary Celebration:
THANKS to all who made this event a fabulous success!
Chamber President Scott Baird accepts an honorary proclamation from NY State Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee.
Local officials, business owners, non-profit organizers and leading citizens turned out in numbers on February 2 at the Nyack Seaport to mark the Chamber's 55 years of service to the community.
"We want to thank everyone who made this celebration possible --- and for the outpouring of support for Nyack," said Scott Baird, Chamber President.
Sponsored by the Journal News Media Group and M&T Bank, the event included proclamations from Nyack Village, Rockland County and the New York State Assembly. Harriet Cornell, Chairwoman of the Rockland County Legislature, officially declared February 2 "Chamber of Commerce of the Nyacks Day."
An evening of honors --- and fun!
John Costa, local businessman, attorney and civic leader, accepted the Chamber's "Citizen of the Year" award, and Victoria Hertz from the Edward Hopper Art Center accepted the award for "Event of the Year."
The evening's entertainment featured Broadway hits performed by local artists Rita Harvey, John Patrick Schutz and Brian Walters, along with a slideshow of historic photos of Nyack compiled by the Nyack Historical Society and the Local History Room of the Nyack Library.
"It was a great turnout --- and a fantastic tribute to the commitment we all have to keeping Nyack strong and vibrant," said Baird. "Our goal is simple: to bring people to Nyack."
With special thanks to...
Additional support for the event was provided by the Nyack Seaport and Best Western Nyack. The Village of Nyack, Harrington Press, Tappan Zee Florist, graphic artist Hilary Sweeney and photographer Terence Lynch at www.StudioElevenOnline.com
