Cecil County Chamber Shares Community Pride
with 2016 Business Spotlight Luncheon
The Cecil County Chamber of Commerce celebrated 11 member businesses and nonprofit organizations on Thursday, at the 2nd Annual Business Spotlight Luncheon at Schaefer’s Canal House Ballroom in Chesapeake City.
The Business Spotlight program was designed to pay tribute to businesses, nonprofit organizations and individuals, for major contributions to civic and economic growth. The achievements for which members are eligible for recognition include new businesses, new ownership of existing businesses, significant business expansions, quinquennial anniversaries (5, 10, 15 years, etc.), and individuals or organizations selected for county, state or national awards.
Bonnie Grady, Chamber President and CEO, explained that this event is a natural extension of the Chamber-initiated “I Love Cecil” campaign which was rolled out in January of this year. “Everyone deserves to feel good about their community. Paying tribute to the successes of our local businesses, and recognizing the important contributions of our nonprofits simply gives us all more to love about Cecil County.”
The following businesses, organizations and individuals were presented certificates of recognition:
- American Cancer Society/Relay for Life of Cecil County – 20 years for this event
- Armstrong – 55 Years in Business
- The Cecil Whig – 175 Years in Business
- Chesapeake Inn Restaurant – 20 Years in Business
- Community Mediation Upper Shore – Significant Business Expansion
- Freedom Hills Therapeutic Riding Program - Significant Business Expansion
- McCool Insurance Agency – 60 Years in Business
- OM Art Photography – New Business

The Chamber is working to incorporate the “I Love Cecil” message into all of its programs and events, according to Grady.
