CHAMBER PRESENTS STEVE LYONS FUND WITH BUSINESS OF THE MONTH FOR JULY
In recognition of their distinctive role and ongoing efforts to promote youth and arts in Haverhill, the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the Steve Lyon’s Fund as the July 2015 Business of the Month.
Founded in 2007 to honor the memory of Steven William Lyons, the organization hosts the annual “Rock Out! Cookout” at Winnekenni Castle in Haverhill. This all-day, outdoor music and arts festival has raised over $13,000 and has benefited organizations including The Sad Cafe, Massachusetts Special Olympics, Boy Scouts of America and Reid’s Ride for Cancer Research. In 2014, the Steve Lyon’s fund donated $3,000 to benefit students participating in art, music and theatre programs at Haverhill High School.
The Steve Lyon’s Fund has been an active participant in the Chamber and the Downtown Haverhill Committee. Most recently the organization helped make the KidsArts FEST a great success with a day of entertainment including live music and a puppet show.
In an effort to recognize outstanding achievement in the Greater Haverhill community, the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce formally identifies a “Business of the Month” approximately every four weeks. This award is given to a Chamber member that is a proven leader in their business or industry and excels in the areas of community involvement, economic growth, customer service and professional relationships.
Award winners are recognized in area newspapers highlighting their distinction as Business of the Month, receive a complimentary guest ticket to the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce’s exclusive “Annual Business Awards Breakfast” and are automatically entered into the running for the Annual Business of the Year award. That honor is announced during the annual breakfast in February 2016.
Nominations for Business of the Month can be submitted at any time. Forms are available by calling the chamber office at 978-373-5663 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no fee for nominations or applications. Companies may be nominated by any member business. This is a benefit available exclusively to Chamber members.
