Posted on May 25th, 2010
The Pike County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting for the grand opening of Scentchips, located in the Lumberyard Shops in Milford, PA.

“Recently, when I was looking for a new venture, I visited the Scentchips home store in San Antonio, Texas. I was very impressed with the product and thought it would be great fun to offer Scentchips in my hometown,” said Leah Meola, the new owner of the home fragrance store.

The Milford store is one of the first stores of its kind to open on the east coast. Scentchips is the original of the scented wax chips and there are 48 individual scents which can be mixed into custom blends, with the most popular mixtures pre-packaged. In addition, many different style burners such as electric, plug-ins and those used with tea lights are available.

A personalized scentchips blend makes for a thoughtful gift or housewarming present. Stop in today and make your world smell better!

April 30th is Oprah's national No Phone Zone

Posted on April 30th, 2010
An excerpt from Danielle Jordan's letter to Oprah regarding the Chamber's participation in her No Phone Zone Program:

As the CEO of a Chamber of Commerce, your No Phone Zone campaign got me thinking about how many business professionals drive and hold "car meetings" or use their Blackberry's. So on April 30th, my Chamber of Commerce will be promoting your event. Every employee from our business membership that signs the pledge will be entered into a raffle to win a free ad for one year on our website. ( Thank you for all of the lives you are saving through this campaign!

Danielle Jordan ~ Now a No Phone Zone Believer

The rules are: Every employee that signs online can print the page and fax 570-296-3921 or email a copy of it to EACH employee will be put into the raffle to win the one year ad. (So if a business has 100 employees and they all sign that's 100 chances to win)

Jordan Named CEO

Posted on April 12, 2010
The Pike County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors named their Executive Director, Danielle Jordan, as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with an unanimous vote at their March board meeting. Jordan joined the Pike Chamber as the Executive Director in February of 2009.

Over the past 12 months, the chamber has updated the look and feel of their brand with a new logo and a fresh, easy to use website; In March, the Pike Chamber launched the “Weddings in Pike” program to promote and encourage large events in the area. Forthcoming is the “New Resident Program”, which is backed by the Pike County Commissioners and will introduce new homeowners to the local business community. “We’ve done a lot of listening over this past year and it was apparent that in this difficult economy the Chamber needed to get creative in order to help our local businesses,” said Jordan.

In addition to collaborating with so many wonderful people in the Pike area, Jordan’s favorite part of the position is business advocacy. “It’s a responsibility that I take seriously. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to help to make a difference for our local businesses.”

“I sincerely appreciate the support and recognition by the Board of Directors for all of the accomplishments that the Pike Chamber has achieved this past year,” concluded Jordan. “And I am dedicated to listening to and supporting the needs of our local businesses.”

Wedding Program

Posted on April 5, 2010
Who said that the Pocono's were just for Honeymoons? Not anymore. As the
Pike County Chamber of Commerce launched an innovative program at their
networking and chocolate event on Thursday, March 25th at the Tom Quick Inn.
A surprise grand entrance was made by the "Bride", who was elegantly dressed
in a wedding gown and escorted into the ballroom by the new Chamber Wedding
Ambassador, James Campistrous, to "Here comes the Bride" music. The Bride,
(portrayed by Anne Kristen Priebe) officially "unveiled" the Pike Chamber's
"Weddings in Pike" promotional program, which will promote local wedding
venues, services and products to both local and outreach areas.

"Pike County is an incredibly beautiful destination that has many unique
venues to get married," stated Danielle Jordan, Executive Director of the
Pike County Chamber of Commerce. "In addition to being an extraordinary
experience, it is much more affordable to have a wedding here then our
neighboring states of New York and New Jersey."

A new website section with local wedding information and current tips was
created on by the Chamber's website designers, Eric and
Andrea Kimes of Web Leaps. The branding of the program was by The Milford
Journal and the beautiful photos are by local photographer, Tom Duncan.

"The Chamber recognizes that our businesses need us to keep striving to
bring forth fresh ideas which will strengthen the local business climate,"
stated Jordan. "The paradigm of Pike County is changing from a summer
tourist area to a four season destination. Thank you to my Board of
Directors for their support and encouragement in trying out new ideas. It
is with your backing that the Chamber can continue in a forward motion and
