Due to the outbreak of the Corona Virus, it is in the best interest of our community to close the Chamber until further notice. All business to business will be postponed to a later date. All board meetings will be delayed or postponed.
We must do our part to help stop this virus. It has made its way to Allegany County. These measures are to protect all of us.
The chamber staff will be working from home to the best of our abilities. The best way to reach us is through Facebook and Facebook Messenger unless it is urgent. Al can be reached on his cell at 716-378-7221 and Karen's cell is 716-474-6891. Be safe, wash your hands and stay home if possible.
