October is upon us and now is a peak time for tourism in the Hudson Valley region with fall foliage in full effect. What a great time to highlight your business! Let all the visiting eyes know what you have to offer, whether it is a seasonal item like Oktoberfest from Sloop Brewing or pumpkin picking at Fishkill Farms, let everyone know the best of what the region has to offer.
There are a number of exciting events coming this month, such as Business After Hours at Hudson Valley Brewery on October 26th and the October Contact Breakfast with House of Representatives 18th Congressional District candidates Pat Ryan and Colin Schmitt. Be on the lookout for the upcoming Business Directory – a great place to have your business listed, and found, by members of your local community.
Finally, the 31st Annual Balloon Festival is now in the rearview mirror and what a great event! I’d like to take the opportunity to acknowledge the tireless work I witnessed from the Chamber and Foundation employees that seemed to make the event go off so well. What a great job! Now only eleven more months until the 32nd Annual Balloon Festival. Of course, this couldn’t have gone so well without the supporting sponsors, starting with JP Morgan Chase & Co.
