The Perry Area Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to join our community service organization.
Our local Chamber has hosted ribbon-cuttings, the Sea Serpent Festival, Santa Parade and toy distribution in past years. Those events have changed with the advent of new festivals and activities spearheaded by other organizations. Now, thanks to your membership, Perry Area Chamber of Commerce supports them with small donations.
For the past year, the PACC has worked as lead agent and with the Village to administer a $200,000 New York Main Street Grant project. You need only look downtown to see the changes in the buildings and in the new Festival Plaza. We are committed to overseeing the upkeep of the projects for seven years.
On a smaller scale, the PACC provided a downtown business a small, low-interest loan to make building improvements that were outside of the Main Street grant project area. We want to continue that ability as funds allow.
The PACC replenished its supply of custom-made, blue-and-white OPEN flags as new or replacement flags for your business. They cost $20 and can be ordered by calling Secretary Lorraine Sturm at 237-6310.
Perry Area Chamber’s signage program refurbished the gateway signs coming into the Village and will revamp smaller directional signs as funds allow. Perry Area Chamber still awards a scholarship to a deserving PHS graduate bound for a career or college degree in business.
We want to continue all these endeavors and hope you will believe them worthy of your support. Please help make that possible by joining Perry Area Chamber of Commerce. All dues are $40.
