Business mixer

PLATTSBURGH — Perrywinkle’s Fine Jewelry and Dickey’s Barbecue Pit will co-host the North Country Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours mixer this month.

The chamber invites area business people to the event on Thursday, Nov. 21, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Perrywinkle’s.

Catered by Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, this summer picnic-themed event is a chance to make new business contacts while enjoying hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, door prizes and more.

Everyone who brings in a new, unwrapped gift for a child will be entered in a special drawing to win a Perrywinkle’s Gift Card. All gifts will be donated to JCEO and the Christmas Bureau. Everyone who attends will receive $50 off a purchase of $200 or more made that night.

Business After Hours is an opportunity to expand business networks and is open to all chamber members and their employees. Non-members are encouraged to contact the chamber for a special-guest pass. The fee for Business After Hours is $3 with an advance reservation and $4 without. For more information or to make reservations, call the chamber at 563-1000.

Appreciation event

TICONDEROGA — Hundreds of Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union (TFCU) members and others from the community participated in the annual Credit Union Week Celebration Oct. 15 to 19. This year’s celebration included three member-appreciation BBQs, the Credit Union’s 4th Annual Shred Fest and a carnival-themed Member Appreciation Event.

“Credit Union Week provides an opportunity for our staff to interact with our members on a different level and give back to the community,” said Shawn Hayes, TFCU president and CEO.

The Community Appreciation Event was a family-friendly, carnival-themed activity that took place Oct. 19 at the Best Western. One attendee, Dawn Davis, was randomly selected to win an iPad.

The Shred Fest was a free paper-shredding event aimed at increasing public awareness of identity-theft prevention. It produced more than 5,600 lbs. of shredded paper resulting in a $443.10 donation to be split among three area food pantries. Non-perishable food donations were accepted in exchange for free paper-shredding.
