The month of November is a time to give thanks for all we have in our community and our strong member support.
We are pleased that Universal Technical Institute has opened for classes in Lisle. The first day was Veterans Day Nov. 11 in their new location for the well-established institution. We are proud that they chose Lisle as their new home.
Today, we will hold a joint Business After Hours with the Woodridge, Downers Grove and Naperville chambers at the West Suburban Community Pantry.
The pantry has provided food and other resources to hundreds of families in our area and the event event will be a great way to show our appreciation.
We also welcomed two new businesses to the community this month.
One is Advanced Lisle Dental on Maple Avenue and the other is Todd Martin DDS at 2015 Ogden Avenue. We welcome these new businesses to the Lisle community.
Our November luncheon on Thursday will feature a presentation entitled “Creating Committed Customers” by Wallace Long. The luncheon will take place at Pizzeria Bombola at 11:30 a.m. It will be an opportunity to enhance your skills in customer service so please join us.
At the end of the month we will hold the second annual Turkey Trot Tune-up on Sunday Nov. 24 at 9 a.m. at Lisle Community Park. This event is presented as an alternative to the many turkey trots that are held on Thanksgiving Day.
The first 300 to register will receive a comfortable hooded sweatshirt. The overall winners – both male and female – will receive a turkey as well as other awards. Registration will be taken the day of the event so please join us.
Finally, best wishes from the Lisle Area Chamber for a happy and blessed Thanksgiving and Hanukkah celebration.
Tom Althoff is President/CEO of the Lisle Area Chamber of Commerce.
