This has certainly been a challenging time for everyone. It’s also been a time of community and coming together. We, here at the Chamber have seen community leaders and organizations coming together to take care of Brown County. We live in a great community that cares and when it gets tough, we’ll be there to help one another.
That collaboration gives everyone hope. We believe we are stronger together than separate. The more we come together, and work aligned to address the challenges of today, tomorrow and for the unforeseen future, the better off we will be.
There are many more questions than answers right now. That is scary and frustrating at the same time. We acknowledge that and pledge to get as much timely information pushed out to our community as we can. It will take some time to understand how, at this local level, the relief efforts from the Federal and State governments will be accessed and specifically help our community. Many people have come together and are working all aspects of this to push for Brown County representation and let our voices be heard.
The next few weeks, and possibly longer, will continue to be a challenge for all of us. As we see the economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak build it will be critical that we remain calm, push for all the assistance and economic relief we can get. It will be important to remain Brown County Strong.
In these uncertain times, we want to assure you the Brown County Chamber of Commerce is here and will assist and be a connector for our community. This is larger than just our Brown County Chamber members – it’s our entire community and we must band together and work in a concerted effort.
We will get through this. We see every day and in so many ways what our community is capable of when we all come together. When we align and reach out to help one another. We are an amazing community and the Brown County Chamber of Commerce is proud to be a part of this wonderful community. Please check back here for regular updates.
We are Brown County Strong!
