FLUSHING TWP. — When the Flushing Area Chamber of Commerce needed a sponsor for its July networking luncheon, several Flushing Township officials stepped in to personally fund the event.

Flushing Township Supervisor Fred Thorsby, Treasurer Terry Peck, Clerk Wendy Meinburg, Trustee Sharilynn Willette and Trustee Jenifer Almassy each sponsored the Flushing Chamber luncheon, which was held at the Flushing Township Nature Park pavilion on July 22.

Because the township itself could not use taxpayer money to sponsor the luncheon, township officials and board members provided funds for food, utensils and tablecloths out of their own pockets.

The Flushing Area Chamber of Commerce wishes to thank Thorsby, Peck, Meinburg, Willette and Almassy for their support in making the July luncheon a successful networking event. — B.G.
