Looking to the Future
We sadly and unexpectedly lost a dear friend, Marcia Finkelstein, who was a Chamber board member, volunteer and champion of the POB community. Marcia's attitude was always positive and upbeat. She was passionate about her family, her community and exuded warmth and charm. While many people Marcia's age “retire” both from work and community activities, Marcia didn’t and continued in her business activities and community activism. She was tireless and always looked to the future.
I think Marcia would be very happy with our recent Board elections when four "new" members were elected: Andrea Goldman, Alan Goldberg, David Weinstein & Ned Marzigliano. These new board members promise to bring new energy and new ideas to the Chamber that will continue to make the Chamber exciting, vibrant and relevant to our members and the POB Community. As Marcia would say, the future looks bright indeed!
