Even though fall is here, don’t shy away from holding a nice, cold, bubbly, crafty beer in your hand. The Young Professionals Council is excited to host a fun fall event – the fifth annual Foxtober Fest Craft Beer Tasting from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 26 at Pub 47 in St. Charles.
We are thrilled to announce that attendees at this event will get the opportunity to experience a “Tap Take Over” that is so sensational it will put that evil, intriguing smile on your face. The featured local brewery will be Scorched Earth Brewery. The event also will include phenomenal appetizers, a beer-tasting glass and a signature shirt.
The annual Membership Breakfast will be in the beginning of November. At this event, the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce provides an overview of the past year and gives a preview into 2018.
The Membership Committee presents the Member of the Year and Rookie of the Year. This is a perfect time to find out some results with the chamber and what its plans are to continue to assist and support its members.
Speaking of updates in St. Charles, the Legislative Committee is hosting its annual City of St. Charles Update Luncheon. The chamber invited several nonprofit organizations, including the Greater St. Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau, the St. Charles Public Library, St. Charles Park District, city of St. Charles and St. Charles History Museum, to set up tables and information about their updates and what new exciting projects they will be continuing to work on. The lunch will be held Oct. 18 at Royal Fox Country Club, and Mayor Ray Rogina and 1st Ward Alderman Dan Stellato will provide updates on economic development and city projects.
