This year flew by, seemingly, in the blink of an eye. Our chamber hosted 40 Business After Hours events, 24 luncheons, 12 lunch-and-learns events, three signature events, 10 Bagels & Business meetings, 12 Young Executive meetings, and we’re not slowing down now. We will end the year with our Chamber Awards and Business Expo on Dec. 3. All members of the Oviedo-Winter Springs Chamber of Commerce are invited to attend and set up a free promotional table. Chamber President and CEO Todd Sykes will present awards to those who excelled throughout the year. He will also give an update on what to expect in 2016.
Community organizations have another opportunity for exposure at our Chamber Holiday Parade, which is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 12, with a 4 p.m. start time. The parade will feature dressed-up floats, businesses, sports teams, troops, the Hagerty High School Band and an appearance from Santa Claus. This event is free for the whole family, and a lot of candy will be thrown for the kids. Organizations wishing to participate can register at OviedoWinterSprings.org. Snow Mountain follows the parade starting at 5 p.m.
We hope all of Central Florida has a joyous holiday season.
