Franklin Square Chamber talks business and projects


The Franklin Square Chamber of Commerce held its general monthly meeting on April 19 at Carmela’s Ristorante Italiano in Franklin Square.

With roughly 195 members to date, the chamber’s meetings are a networking event where fellow business owners can connect with one another while enjoying dinner together.

Lisa DelliPizzi, president of the Franklin Square Chamber of Commerce, ran the recent meeting as usual and discussed strategies on how the entrepreneurs in the crowd could promote their businesses. Guest speakers are also invited to keep members up to date on the latest laws, rules and regulations in business.

At this recent meeting, DelliPizzi and other chamber officials discussed a scholarship initiative. The chamber is looking to award two $500 scholarships to one Valley Stream North High School student and another enrolled at Carey High School.

The Franklin Square Chamber Holiday Committee is also already working on raising money for the community’s annual holiday light display for Christmas time.
