By Susan Miele, Executive Director, Bronxville Chamber of Commerce

Mar. 8, 2017:  The 2017 Guide:  The 2017 Bronxville Guide, the annual phone directory produced by the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce, is now in its 87th year of publication and still widely used! Be on the lookout for your copy.

Though the Guide is provided free of charge, we appreciate the requested donation of $8 to offset its production costs. Checks can be made payable to the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce and mailed to our new address at 51 Pondfield Road, Suite 1. Thank you in advance for helping us do what we do for Bronxville!

A great big thank-you goes to Rosemary Campion of Blackbird Creative Services for perennially providing design services for The Guide. It's a monumental task! Distribution lists were provided by Complete Mailing Lists, who worked extensively with the Chamber to explore and advise on distribution options.
