Thanksgiving Breakfast November 24th 2015

EGG HARBOR CITY – What are you thankful for? Local business and community leaders will answer that question led by former Cleveland Browns and Holy Spirit High School running back William Green of Atlantic City.

The Wimberg Family Foundation will again sponsor the Greater Egg Harbor Chamber of Commerce third annual Community Thanksgiving Breakfast 7-8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 24 in the Tuscany Ballroom at Tuscany House, Renault Winery, 72 Bremen Ave, Egg Harbor City. Tickets are $15 per person and are $120 for a table of 10 people.

Green will serve as the keynote speaker during a morning that will gather Community leaders from Galloway Township, Hammonton, Mullica Township, Hamilton Township, Port Republic and Egg Harbor City will give thanks for the successes during the past year. This year, the Egg Harbor City Fire Company will be honored as organization of the year and World Class Flowers will be recognized as the business of the year.

“The breakfast has been a huge success for the past two years and it creates a great chance for people to catch up with friends and get in the holiday spirit during Thanksgiving week,” said Chamber President James Schroeder of Hammonton. “Times are tough for people in our communities but there is plenty to be thankful for. This is a time of thanksgiving and discussion on how we can work together to improve the lives of our entire community.”

“We’re proud to recognize two longtime Egg Harbor City establishments, the Egg Harbor City Fire Company and World Class Flowers and are happy to welcome William Green,” Schroeder said. “The Chamber hopes groups of friends, coworkers, clubs and other community groups will reserve a table or part of a table to enjoy old friendships and create new contacts.”

Successful Summer

It was a good summer for the Egg Harbor City business community as the region continues to climb out of the worst economic period of most of our lifetimes.

Several new businesses came to town or gained approvals to expand into our community including Waffle House on Philadelphia Avenue, Autozone, S&J Diesel and Costa Marine.

The news of the closing of Howell’s on the Avenue was tempered by continued work toward the opening of Leatherheads near the corner of White Horse Pike and Philadelphia Avenue.  We hope the Avenue closing is a temporary setback for a business that has been well received in the community in its last two formats.

The opening of Rittenberg Manor brings a new energy to Philadelphia Avenue.  The impressive building constructed by Confier is a project worthy of the hallowed site of the former Egg Harbor High School and Rittenberg School.  A new group of families have moved in and made it their home.  It is exciting to see people gather in the gazebo during the day and walk the Avenue to visit, shop and enjoy the ever improving Philadelphia Avenue streetscape.

We are hopeful the buildings currently unoccupied or underdeveloped on Philadelphia Avenue and the White Horse Pike will continue to find new uses providing jobs and shopping options.  Two anchor sites, the Bank building at the corner of Philadelphia Avenue and Arago and the old Acme site on the White Horse Pike.  The bank has gone through several auctions and word is it has been sold.  The Acme site is up for sale and there has been interest from developers for several different uses.  The Renault Winery property is proceeding through bankruptcy and will likely emerge from protection in 2016 with a new owner and a fresh vision.

This summer the lake area, one of the best kept recreation secrets in the western end of Atlantic County, had a banner year.   Badge sales were brisk.  Two triathalons were held, one in July and one September.  This was the first year for the September event and the July event set another participant record.  The course is regarded as one of the best in south jersey and the reputation will continue to grow.

2016 will prove to be another year of growth and improvement for Egg Harbor City.  When the economy is down and employment is scarce entrepreneurial spirit kicks in and new businesses are born.  Egg Harbor City has worked hard over the past few years to streamline the process for new businesses to come to town.  People with great ideas for starting a business can contact me at 609-270-7590 to discuss how to get started in Egg Harbor City.

The Wimberg Family Foundation will again sponsor the Greater Egg Harbor Chamber of Commerce third annual Community Thanksgiving Breakfast 7-8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 24 in the Tuscany Ballroom at Tuscany House, Renault Winery, 72 Bremen Ave, Egg Harbor City. Tickets are $15 per person and are $120 for a table of 10 people.

Reservations are required. Ticket requests and donations should be sent to The Greater Egg Harbor Chamber of Commerce P.O. Box 129 Egg Harbor City, NJ 08215. Call James Schroeder 609-270-7590 or email jim@jerseyshorelawfirm.com
