As we approach the end of 2017 and set our sights on a New Year, it's an appropriate
time to reflect on some of the accomplishments of the business community and the
impact we've all made on the broader community.
From UGI Utilities breaking ground on its new headquarters in Lancaster County to
the community raising a record-setting $8.6 million through the ExtraOrdinary Give;
from Cargas announcing their relocation to downtown Lancaster to the opening of
the Purdue plant in Conoy Township; and from the development of Lime Springs
Farm in Lancaster to the launch of the SkillUp Lancaster online training program,
2017 invited good economic news on a host of levels. And, for the Chamber too, as
I'd be remiss if I didn't include the Lancaster Chamber moving its headquarters to
115 East King Street, thanks to your generosity!
This edition of "Thriving!" will add more accomplishments to the list and, once again,
provide us a reason to be thankful for the talent, innovation and success that defines
the Lancaster County business community.
So as you read this year-end edition of Thriving!, I encourage you to reflect on
your accomplishments over the past twelve months. And, as importantly, how the
Chamber can help you ensure a prosperous New Year!

Tom Baldrige, C.C.E., President & CEO
Lancaster Chamber
