Chamber News for October 20
Thanks to everyone who made it out to our Business After Hours last week! It was great fun on a beautiful evening, but bittersweet; it may be some time before we can hold an in-person event. A big thank you to our host, House of Books and Games, and to our sponsor, Camp Bow Wow of Bloomfield!

As we all surely know, an important election is coming up on November 3. Do you know your local candidates? Click here to watch Windsor's candidates for the state legislature face off and answer questions at Candidates' Night, a co-production of the Chamber and the Windsor League of Women Voters. If you don't yet have a plan to vote, click here for information on live and absentee voting in Windsor.

Get ready for SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY and, for the first time ever in Windsor, ARTISTS SUNDAY! These events, held the weekend after Thanksgiving, encourage Windsor residents to do their holiday shopping at small local businesses. Stay tuned for more information on how to participate.

Finally, no matter how long you've been a Chamber member, you're likely to learn something at Chamber 101 on November 11! We'll have information on how to make the most of your Chamber membership and how to get involved, as well as a chance to introduce yourself and meet some fellow Windsor-area businesses. More info and registration is below.
