Spotlight on Allies: Schoharie County Chamber of Commerce

By Gail Browning

Good news! The George Lan­dis Arbore­tum is now includ­ed in the Pic­ture Per­fect Schoharie Coun­ty” tele­vi­sion ad cam­paign spon­sored by the Schoharie Coun­ty Cham­ber of Com­merce. Fund­ed in part by the I Love NY pro­gram”, the cam­paign was coor­di­nat­ed by the Cham­ber, and fea­tures area busi­ness­es as well as not-for-prof­it orga­ni­za­tions such as Landis.

Cham­ber Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Geor­gia VanDy­ck and Tourism Coor­di­na­tor Becky Stark are ded­i­cat­ed to pro­mot­ing the many attrac­tions and busi­ness enter­pris­es locat­ed in Schoharie Coun­ty. Both were enthu­si­as­tic about three recent rib­bon-cut­ting cer­e­monies wel­com­ing new busi­ness­es: My Way Café, Grand­pa George’s Dugout, Victoria’s Groom­ing, and The Roy­al Mead­ery, part of the new bev­er­age trail men­tioned below.

They also her­ald­ed the offi­cial open­ing of the Lilies of the Schoharie Val­ley Walk­ing Park and Gar­dens on Fort Road in Schoharie, fea­tur­ing a dis­play of mul­ti­ple vari­eties of lilies near the Fox Creek Cov­ered Bridge. The plant­i­ng was a col­lab­o­ra­tive effort of the Cham­ber and the Schoharie Pro­mo­tion­al Asso­ci­a­tion. Addi­tion­al­ly, the Cham­ber announced the open­ing of a new Bev­er­age Trail, link­ing two dis­til­leries, a brew­ery, and a mead­ery, an oppor­tu­ni­ty to show­case the craft bev­er­age busi­ness­es in the county.

In Octo­ber, the Cham­ber will begin host­ing a Small Busi­ness Train­ing series. Fur­ther infor­ma­tion about this series and oth­er events such as the Busi­ness Expo and Annu­al Busi­ness Cel­e­bra­tion Awards is avail­able on the Chamber’s web­site, www​.schohariecham​ber​.com.

You can vis­it the Schoharie Coun­ty Cham­ber of Com­merce at the Kintz Plas­tics annex at 143 Cav­erns Road, Howe Cave, New York. The staff will be hap­py to meet you and assist you in your trav­el plans through­out the county.
