May 27, 2020 UPDATE FROM CHAMBER PRESIDENT

Dear fellow Chamber members,

As we move through these various phases of the Covid-19 crisis, I wanted to take a moment to tell all of you how impressive our business community is. While our membership is a mix of essential and non-essential businesses, retail stores that have been closed and safety businesses that have been working overtime, and all types of service businesses, the message has been strong nonetheless….we are in this together.

I have seen the good side of our Frankfort business community reach out to help each other. Whether it be supporting our local restaurants or buying gift cards from a business unable to be open, not only have the citizens of Frankfort stepped up, but so have the businesses. Maybe it was something as simple as sharing your neighbor’s social media post. Or maybe it was helping move boxes from one storefront to a home office so work could continue. Or helping a fellow restaurant owner deliver curbside orders, it has been noticed. Our business community is a critical part of the fabric of Frankfort and by standing together we ensure our future successes.

And I would be remiss if I didn’t thank our dedicated Board of Directors and staff. While having to drastically reduce budget, cancel chamber events, and monitor the ever-changing rules of the Covid-19 crisis, they have all stepped up big time! The Chamber Board has been meeting weekly instead of monthly to handle the issues we face as a chamber while all having to handle their own businesses. Our staff, while cut almost in half, have stepped up to make sure our members have the resources they expect from us.

As we move forward through the rest of 2020, please know we value your investment in the Chamber and hope you feel the same. We will continue to look for ways to bring more value and pertinent programs to prepare us for the “new normal.” The events and programs will not only be back, but I’m sure they will be better than ever and increase the value of your membership. Thank you again for being a part of our business community.

CONCERTS ON THE GREEN

We are sad to announce that the 33rd season of the Frankfort Chamber's Concerts on the Green series has been suspended for June and July.

We hope that Governor Pritzker's phased plan to reopen the state will allow us to present August concerts. We will update you on the status in July.

Thanks for your support,
Concerts on the Green Committee

Volunteer Opportunities

GET INVOLVED WITH

The Frankfort Chamber of Commerce

OUR MISSION: Working together to cultivate and connect our business community

The Frankfort Chamber is only as good as its volunteers and members. Volunteering allows you to give back to the community, have fun, network and get involved! Its also a wonderful way to promote your business while helping others. The Chamber has a wide variety of volunteer opportunities from serving on a committee and planning to handing out raffle tickets at Community Showcase and everything in between.

One of our biggest volunteer opportunities at the Chamber is Frankfort Fall Festival. This is our three day Fest that runs every Labor Day. This event takes hundreds of volunteers to run. If you have even three hours to share that weekend we can use you! Participating on this team is both rewarding and just plain fun. You get to see what Fall Fest is like from the inside! If you are interested in getting involved just give us a call and we will be happy to point you in the right direction!
