Special virtual sessions offered
It’s that time of year. Are you, an employee, client, or family member needing more information regarding Medicare enrollment? PC Chamber Member Medicare Resource Center’s James Ritchie will present two special “Medicare Academy” webinars in the coming month: one on Thursday, Sept. 24, and one on Thursday, Oct. 1. Both sessions will begin at 9 a.m. You can register for the Sept. 24, session HERE. Or, register for the Oct. 1 session HERE. The presentation will cover everything from the basic parts of Medicare and enrollment timeframes, Medicare penalties, options for private insurance and more.
Proceeds of the outing go to fund the annual Chamber Scholarship for a high school student, and to scholarships for Ohio Business Week.
Fortunately, golf is an outdoor activity which has been easily modified to be held safely per health and safety guidelines during the pandemic. We were happy this gave participants a chance to add a golf outing into their summer activity schedule. The outing operated under several modifications which kept our Golf Outing Committee and participants safety a priority.

The Board of Directors of the Preble County Chamber of Commerce has announced the 2020 Business Expo, which had been postponed to Friday-Saturday, Oct. 2-3, will not take place as planned due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and the risks to public health of a large-scale gathering such as this annual event. This was not a decision arrived at lightly. We have been in frequent communication with Preble County Public Health and our partners at many other local departments. We tried to hold out hope the current conditions and state mass gathering mandates would improve by fall, but with less than 60 days to prepare now, it is apparent that is not going to be the case.
The health and welfare of the Preble County community is of primary concern. Therefore, in accordance with the guidance of public health officials, the 2020 Preble County Chamber of Commerce Business Expo is canceled. Organizers will begin working toward preparing for the 2021 Business Expo, next April.
