|What the Honeoye Lake Area Chamber of Commerce does
MISSION STATEMENT: The Honeoye Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is a membership driven, community-minded organization that partners with local businesses and citizens to promote tourism and a thriving business community. We sponsor creative, exciting and informative networking events at local businesses. Many times these events take place outdoors in our incredible Bristol Hills and the beautiful surrounding valleys. These events give local businesses an opportunity to show case what they do best. Many of them are true artists in their craft. They educate members about their business.
The Chamber sponsors the Olde Village Market most Saturday mornings from June - October. We offer an open air market with organic and non-organic locally grown produce, honey, maple syrup, berries, flowers, plants, grass-fed beef, locally roasted coffee, breakfast, local artisans, live music jam, trash to treasures sale and BBQ's. Our goal this summer is to offer activities, crafts and face painting for our younger attendees.
The Chamber of Commerce also hosts the annual George Ward Classic Golf Tournament. We work with the Red Cross on their community blood drive, sponsor ribbon cutting ceremonies for the newest business in our community. We also host a Gourd and Pumpkinfest in October showcasing our local farmers their history in agriculture and their contribution to our community.
Every four month The HLACC sponsored a luncheon at a community restaurant. There is an inspirational, informative and educational guest speaker. We promote local shopping with our annual Home for the Holidays event and Big Red Box shopping spree.
All of this is put together with dedication and passion of volunteers. We are always looking for new fresh ideas and faces willing to help promote our community and the surrounding towns. We welcome feedback and ideas from all people in the communities of Naples, Bristol, Hemlock, Bloomfield, Canadice, Springwater and Honeoye.
