Message from the 2019/20 President – Pam Faulkner
Winnetka and Northfield both have seen so much growth in the past year; we have welcomed many new residents and businesses and said fond farewells to several others. Our communities have seen the completion of several critical infrastructure projects and the beginnings of several more. With Music Festivals, Art Fests, First Fridays, Sidewalk Sales, Farmers’ Markets and Holiday events, there always seems to be something to bring our residents together and new ways to showcase the thriving businesses which call Winnetka and Northfield home.
The coming year will build on the momentum of the past. The Farmers’ Market will open on June 6th and will once again feature outstanding produce, meats, eggs (a personal favorite) and products available from farmers, butchers and vendors in our area. Our always busy Park Districts have so many options available year-round which take advantage of the many facilities and open lands in our communities. New streetscape projects will continue the important work of updating our infrastructure to meet the needs of our growing communities. Most importantly, the many businesses who call these communities home will continue to welcome you and your neighbors.
The Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce staff, Board and members work diligently to make Winnetka and Northfield wonderful places to engage in business. If you or someone you know is interested in opening a business in our community, let us know. We’re here to help!
On behalf of the staff, board and members of the WNCC, I wish you a wonderful year spent shopping, playing, dining and living local!
