Walnutport Canal

The Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber is proud to present the annual Member Appreciation Picnic. Chamber members will gather for our membership appreciation summer picnic and mixer at the Walnutport Canal pavilion on July 25 from 5:30 until 8 p.m. to relax and unwind. The event is a great networking event as we say "thank you" to our members for a great year!

There will be games, music and of course terrific food for all registered attendees. Members will enjoy the peaceful surroundings along the canal while networking with fellow chamber members. This year we are excited to present area non-profits with funds raised throughout the year as well as present local students with the Greater Northern Lehigh Scholarship Awards

In addition, each Business of the Month in attendance will be recognized.

Picnic food and soft drinks will be provided thanks to our sponsors
