We are reaching out to our Chamber Members and Friends to help the Parkman Family (who have strong Chamber ties) purchase a handicap accessible vehicle for their amazing little girl, Gianna Rose. Gianna was born with an extremely rare brain condition that has been undiagnosed.
Her brain condition has caused many disabilities, including; Cerebral palsy, Epilepsy, and other medical anomalies, some to hard to pronounce. Gianna is, and always will be, wheelchair bound. She is a happy 4 year-old motivated little girl. Everyday we see more and more amazing developments!
Gianna requires frequent trips, weekly, to places like Children's Hospital in Boston, Lexington and Waltham for physical therapy and medical follow-ups. As she gets older it will become even more difficult to transport her, as needed.
Your Stoughton Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors voted unanimously to offer whatever assistence possible, including fundraising, reaching out to our Members and looking for whatever is out there for a proper vehicle to help the Parkman's provide transport!
For more information and/or to make a donation, please go to her GoFundMe page
SCC ROASTS CHRIS PETRIE Portuguese National Club
Friday, November 21 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Who better to ROAST then our past Chairman Chris Petrie! He is known and loved by all, but that doesn't mean we won't have a good time poking some fun at Chris. There are 10 Roasters who can't wait to get up at the Podium and give a few turns on the skewer until he's well done!!
Chris will also have his chance, at the end of the evening, to throw some heat on the coals under his roasters as well. Please keep in mind, though this event will be tons of fun, it is also a charitable one, with a portion of the proceeds going to Chris's (and the Chamber's) favorite charity, Food Pantry Foundation of Stoughton!!
The cost is $25.00 per person (table of 10 for $225.00) and includes an array of delicious desserts, all hand made by Nina Pastena of Tito's Cakes in Stoughton, along with some fabulous fruit trays from Gary & Lisa Smith of Peppercorns Catering at the Y.
Tickets for this event will be available shortly at Windsor Tire, 500 Washington St, Stoughton, and right below!
Stoughton is geographically located in the heart of Eastern Massachusetts. Just 30 minutes in either direction from the city of Boston, the city of Providence, Rhode Island and the beauty Cape Cod, thereby benefiting from the vibrance of city life and the tranquility of a suburban community.
The Town of Stoughton cherishes both it's residential and business diversity and was the first to receive a State Proclamation as a No Place For Hate community. With a population of approximately 27,000 residents, Stoughton attracts all types of businesses including; retail, professional and industrial as well as cottage industry business such as the arts, entertainment and many fine restaurants! Stoughtonians take great pride in the accomplishments, diversity and friendly atmosphere we have all come to know.
The Chamber of Commerce is an organization represented by its members. Along with the Officers and Board of Directors are the very important Committees.
Committee members are often a mix of board members and chamber members who discuss the topic of their respective committee and report back to the Board of Directors.
Getting involved with a Committee is a great way of participate along with your colleagues and be a significant asset to your chamber! It's easy and enjoyable and with enough participants the workload is really rather small.
