The Middlefield Chamber of Commerce is committed to working as a partner with retail, industrial and agricultural businesses in our area to help promote, develop and maintain the civic, industrial, agricultural businesses and social interests of the Middlefield area in Geauga County.
The Chamber traditionally holds 11 meetings per year with no January meeting. This year has been an exception because of the virus. In an effort to keep our members informed, we have forwarded announcements from NOACC and the state with current information as it is received.
Under social distancing guidelines, the Chamber is holding their annual open house on July 14 at OldeTowne Grille in Middlefield. This is a drop-in event for the public, but if you know you will be attending, please contact Lynnette at either 440-632-5705 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Bring friends who might be interested in learning about the perks exclusively available from NOACC as a Chamber member.
We would appreciate an opportunity to discuss the benefits of membership offered through NOACC that include health insurance, wellness programs, websites and email marketing, managed care, long term disability and life insurance to name a few.
During the open house, teams can sign up to participate in the Middlefield Chamber annual golf outing at Rolling Green on Aug. 28 and try their luck at putt-putt golf, guessing game raffle, gift certificate raffle, and learn some golf trivia.
The very successful Merry Middlefield event will be held on December 12 this year with our Grinch performance and a visit with Santa. Watch for signs at member businesses collecting toys the weeks leading up to December 12. Toys will be donated to Santa’s Hide-A-Way Hollow for seriously ill children during Santa visits during the year and Toys for Tots.
Looking ahead to 2021, CPR/AED training will be held in February and will be open to any business or individual.
The Chamber calendar with meeting dates, times and locations is available at www.middlefieldcc.com. Find out how the Middlefield Chamber can help your business or how you can help the Chamber by contacting Lynnette 440-632-5705.
