TREASURE ISLAND – The Treasure Island & Madeira Beach Chamber of Commerce will host a grand opening and ribbon-cutting Wednesday, Jan. 16, 4 to 6 p.m., at its new location at 12601 Gulf Blvd., Treasure Island.
A ribbon-cutting at 5 p.m. will make the opening of this new building official. Light refreshments will be served.
“We had an iconic building at 245 107th Ave., thanks to the support of our former landlord and chamber leader Bill Edwards,” said Joe Dise, chamber chairman. “But an affordable opportunity came to move our main office to Gulf Boulevard. Our move was accomplished on Dec. 1, and we have worked hard to prepare for our Jan. 16 ribbon-cutting.”
“This move to a larger facility so much closer to the John’s Pass Bridge is a wise one,” said Missy H. Hahn, chamber president. “It establishes us as the only official Visit Florida Welcome Center on Gulf Boulevard in Treasure Island, and makes us more accessible to the many visitors who travel Gulf Boulevard every day.”
The Treasure Island & Madeira Beach Chamber of Commerce is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit organization. Call 727-360-4121 to RSVP for the ribbon-cutting. For information, visit www.islandneighborschamber.org.
