Testimonials

"Just wanted to acknowledge the outstanding event recently held by the Chamber--the  members seemed so pleased to learn about the host businesses and services and to meet one another, exchange business cards and enjoy the appetizers, music and general festivities.  It is a good example of what the Highland Park Chamber of Commerce does--flawless.  Well done!"
