RE:  GNACC summer River Fest celebration


FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, CALL:  Andrew Nollman, Chairman of the Board,
GREATER NORWICH AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE (860) 887-1647

 

The Greater Norwich Area Chamber of Commerce has determined that dragon boat racing has run its course at the Chamber's summer River Fest celebration, and it will not be a part of that event this year, Andrew Nollman, Chairman of the Board of Directors, announced today.

 

"These types of things have a life cycle. Participants enjoyed the racing over the years, but we keep our ear to the ground on what our members want, and the novelty has worn off a bit. The purpose of the races was to provide an unusual team building exercise for our member businesses. Our Board discussed this after last year's event and we believe it is time to move on to other team building opportunities." Nollman said.

 

The Greater Norwich Area Chamber of Commerce serves businesses, industries and professions in the northern half of New London County. Its office is at 112 Main Street in Norwich. Those interested can contact The Greater Norwich Area Chamber of Commerce at (860) 887-1647, or contact the Chamber through its website, www.norwichchamber.com.
