Welcome to Ronkonkoma!
The chamber is comprised of people who are committed to improving the economic climate and quality of life in the Greater Ronkonkomas. The strength of our Chamber of Commerce lies in the size and diversity of its membership. Both large and small businesses from virtually every profession are represent. The members ARE the Chamber.
Dear Business Colleagues and Neighbors,
“See you in September…. See you when the summer’s through.” – The Happenings
September 4th to be exact! The Chamber’s 11th Annual Street Fair. Join us for a day of fun for the entire family. Be sure to stop by the Chamber Booth to see our Chinese Auction with proceeds going towards our Scholarship Program.
On August 14th , which I am convinced was the hottest day of the year, the Chamber held our 4th Annual Celebrity Softball Game to benefit Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. We have so many people to thank: Steve Smith, President of the Connetquot Youth Association and his Board for providing the ballfield, Ronkonkoma resident and event planner extraordinarie Mick DuRussel for arranging the celebrities to play, our sponsors, the volunteers and of course the celebrities who made this event possible. And to Richie B’s for the delicious buffet he provided post game. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Ronkonkoma’s own Chris Roach was an announcer, and as always made us laugh. He announced that he is a cast member in Kevin James’ new sitcom Kevin Can Wait. So happy when good things happen to good people. We love you Chris! Good luck!
