2014 Community Leaders Thanksgiving Breakfast

Egg Harbor City, November 1, 2014: The Greater Egg Harbor Chamber of Commerce will host the first annual Community Thanksgiving Breakfast at Joseph’s Restaurant at Renault Winery on November 25th from 7 am until 8:30 am. The event will highlight the many reasons we have to give thanks in our communities, foster continued cooperation among local business, community, religious and elected leaders to improve our quality of life.

The breakfast was a huge success last year and is a great chance for people to catch up with friends and get in the holiday spirit during Thanksgiving week. The Chamber hopes groups of friends, co-workers, clubs and other community groups will reserve a table or part of a table to enjoy old friendships and create new contacts.

“It has been a tough year for many in our communities, still, we have a lot to be thankful for. This event established itself last year as a time of thanksgiving and discussion on how to work together in the upcoming months to improve the lives of all”, stated Chamber President James Schroeder.
