Chamber readies for the New Year


Loaded with new and old events, Moriches Chamber of Commerce president Art Gerhauser and his team are prepared for 2023.

“This has been a busy year and we accomplished more than we anticipated,” said Miriam Gillies, chamber member of 2022.

In 2022, the chamber hosted their annual St. Patrick’s Day parade, the summer concerts and movie series, awarded students of the month for the scholarship, hosted spring, fall and winter fairs, presented holiday gifts to the local food pantries, held their Veterans Day parade, Christmas tree and menorah lightings.

“We keep busy, that’s for sure,” she said of all the hard work of the chamber to make the year memorable for the community.

According to Gerhauser, in 2023, the chamber hopes to continue with their annual events while also furthering the interests of small businesses. He also hopes to bring in new members and create a sense of local-business community by encouraging collaborations between business owners.
