Dear Tri Boro Chamber of Commerce,

My name is Devika Bhandari. I'm from Butler, NJ and recently this prestigious chamber of commerce has rewarded me with a scholarship. I wanted to take some time to properly thank you for this amazing honor. It has definitely been a huge help in funding my college career. I'm excited to be attending Rutgers this fall and I hope that I can make you all proud. I hope my message finds you safely and you all enjoy your summer. Again, thank you very much.

Sincerely, Devika Bhandari

Hello from Lake George NY


As a show of thanks for 13 years of service, Former Chamber President Jerry Vinci and wife Vivian were awarded a weekend getaway in Lake George at the Sagamore Hotel.

A note from Vivian and Jerry:

We can't thank you enough for the trip to the Sagamore at Lake George.

The hotel was absolutely beautiful, the food and the atmosphere were wonderful. It was such a treat to be able to relax and enjoy the beauty of the area. We even visited the Bolton Chamber of Commerce which is the local chamber for the area surrounding and including the Sagamore.

Thanks again for your gift.
Jerry & Vivian Vinci
