The Chamber Chatter for January 2017 Print


By Susan Miele, Executive Director, Bronxville Chamber of Commerce

Jan. 18, 2017:  Resolutions—Keep Them!

Resolution #1: Boost Bronxville’s Economy—which benefits all of us directly—by committing to more spending in town. Perhaps a 10% increase is a reasonable resolution to make—but of course even more would be even better! A strong local economy keeps property values high and taxes down. Encourage your neighbors to do the same.

Bronxville Fitness Club is making resolution maintenance hard to refuse. Brand new members get 50% off their first month of monthly membership from now until January 31—and there’s never an initiation fee! 72 Palmer Ave. 914-771-9771;

Need help sticking to your fitness resolutions? Jill Guericio-Niebling of A Trim and Healthy Life does this for a living! Enlist Jill as your health coach to help you stay on track. Through one-on-one mentorship and support, you can learn to stay motivated and committed.

Stick to your dietary New Year’s resolutions at Stillmeadow Gourmet with their daily selection of healthy soups, salads, quinoa bowls and more!

Here’s a resolution that might not be on your radar: Get your hearing checked! Research shows that unaddressed hearing loss can affect mood, socialization, and health—even diminished cognitive function, and an increased risk of falling. Schedule an appointment with Noel Thayer at Bronxville Hearing Center!

Regardless of age or health status, everyone should have a New York State Health Care Proxy. The unexpected happens – unexpectedly. It is important that you select someone to represent you and act as your health care agent, someone who knows your wishes and understands the care you would want. Make this the year you take care of this, and lean on Westchester End-of-Life Coalition for help and advice.
