Last week we introduced to you to who the Gouverneur Chamber is, this week let's find out what the chamber does for our community.

The Chamber holds an annual Chamber banquet in May honoring a Business Member by asking the community for nominations. This year, we highlighted New York Pizzeria. We also, through a random drawing, choose our featured 'Business of the Month' for the entire coming year.

In June we host the Flag Day Parade; a big event that brings lots of people to Gouverneur, and always a fun filled day!

Throughout the summer, farmers market is held on Thursdays 9am to 2 pm!

August brings us the Community Garage Sales and in September is Pumpkin Fest. Chamber Directors help the Fair Association with the selling of the Pumpkin Drop tickets and with the organization of the event.

Santa comes to Gouverneur in December at our Christmas Parade in the village park. Kids are excited to see Santa, snack on treats of cookies and hot chocolate and enjoy the horse drawn sleigh rides.

New this year, the chamber will be hosting an Informative Small Business Class, so if you are thinking about starting a new business, this is a great place to start. The Small Business Administration in Canton will teach the 2 hour class in October, more info to come.

Each week we will give a Special Business Shout out to our wonderful businesses right here in downtown Gouverneur!

This week our Special Business Shout Out goes to our downtown Brown's Jewelry store located at 43 East Main Street. Looking for a special gift, shop Brown's!
