Mid Summer News
It's hard to believe we are almost half way through summer.  Hope you had time to enjoy the 4th of July activities around town.  Our forefathers would no doubt be pleased to see the annual celebrations that took place around our nation as we remembered the sacrifices made to lay the foundation for a free nation.

Speaking of freedom, this is a good time of year to arrange a meeting with a financial planner, tax accountant, stock broker, wealth manager and/or estate attorney to be sure you are on the right track with your finances, business, estate and property to ensure your financial freedom.  Check our website for a list of SY Chamber professionals who are ready to assist with your planning and estate needs.  Review your business plan, take one of the free workshops the Chambers offer through SCORE, or hire a marketing consultant. 

A good time of year to realign your business and personal planning.
