Thank you to everyone who came out and participated in the EXPO

This year's event was a grand success. We filled the gym with vendors and merchants,
the community came out by the hundred's to enjoy the festivities,
and a record number of children participating in trick-or-treat and the costume contest!

BIG Thank You to everyone who made the EXPO possible.

Welcome to the Rootstown Area Chamber of Commerce

What a year it has been. I hope your business has experienced success and growth in 2015. All of us on the Chamber Board have enjoyed meeting the many new members, catching up with long-time members and being a part of development in the Rootstown Area.

As we come to a close on 2015, I would like to invite all chamber members to our Annual Chamber Holiday Luncheon to be held at the Barrel Run Crossing Winery on Dec. 8th, at 11:30AM. Each year we honor a local food bank, and this year we shall do the same. Also, on the agenda will be the introduction of the 2016 chamber Board of Directors. I hope you can join us for this one last event of 2015. Bring information on your business, because as you may know....this is a networking event!

And for the children of all ages, it is time for SANTA COMES TO R-Town!! Can you hear those jingle bells ringing? Santa Russ will come on by in a stately ride (a Rootstown Fire Truck!) and join everyone on Dec. 5th, 5:30 - 8:30PM at the Rootstown Congregational Church. All are welcome and don't forget to bring your camera. Also needed are yummy treats for the children to enjoy. If you would like to donate cookies, etc. please email me at: Last year we had a HUGE crowd; it was wonderful. But that that means we should plan for a big turn out again, so we need lots of goodies for this year’s event. Let us know if you can help!

November General Membership Meeting

GUEST SPEAKER: Dan Cargill, Key Bank

Dan gave a very interesting presentation on Health Savings Accounts. We learned the basics of just what that is, and how it can work for you, your family and if you are a business owner, your employees. As with many government regulations, things can be complicated, however Dan gave a wonderfu suggestion that we should all seek out a professional money manger (think, your local bank as a resource) to help you with the ins and out of this valuable money saving account.

An HSA is very different from the old health savings accounts. There is no "use-it or lose it" regulation.

Learn more by contacting Dan, or your own money manager for more information.
