The Western Chester County Chamber of Commerce recently hosted its Annual Dinner at the Coatesville Country Club with the theme of “Strong Businesses Create Strong Communities.”
Throughout 2018, Board of Directors President Donna McCorkle dedicated her term to ensuring local businesses are aware of chamber resources that assist in strengthening local business and community well-being. The theme continued through the night with the recognition of two award recipients dedicated to servicing the region.
Donna Horvath from the Honey Brook Partnership presented Tom Tracy with the chamber’s Joseph G. Filoromo Jr. Community Service Award. The award recognizes an individual who enlists their leadership skills with an unselfish dedication to volunteerism. Tracy has more than 50 years of experience in education business and management.
Board member Alissa Griffith presented Greg Vietri with the Elliott R. Jones Award, which is granted to an individual who has contributed services in making the chamber a viable organization.
Karl Klingmann from Penn Rise Advisors was announced as the chamber’s incoming Board President for 2019-2020.
