A look back at May, a peek at June

Welcome to BACC Briefing our new monthly blog. At the start of each month Grace Tucker, manager of communications, events and member services, provides a wrap up of Chamber events, activities and membership from the previous month.

Events are in full swing again (pun intended)

The BACC’s May was filled with 11 events. Aside from our regular monthly meetings of BANG, SBC and Toastmasters, Ambassadors (at Wholey Granoly), Pop Up Lunch (Taqueria El Valle), we also had the quarterly New Member Breakfast Club, two ribbon cutting ceremonies (Champion Jiu Jitsu and Rapid Healthcare), and two speaker luncheons (at Ashbury’s at Boughton Ridge, Beggar’s Pizza). For June we’re going full steam ahead with our sold-out Golf Extravaganza.

So sad to see them gone

In May we had to say goodbye to organizations that closed their doors.

With the retirement of their executive director Dr. Len Ingram, The H.E.A.R.T. Organization saw their last students in April. We hear that from these ashes the phoenix will rise again. We’re looking forward to the newest incarnation of this much needed nonprofit.

Rockbottom Brewery & Restaurant closed its doors at The Promenade. We’re sad to see such a strong supporter of Bolingbrook and the BACC leave. Their parent company, Craftworks Holdings, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2020. The company owned 330 breweries and restaurants in 36 states at the time.

Juan Ooink of Ooink Law recently moved his practice out of state. We wish him well on his newest adventures.

Welcome to the Club

In May the BACC added Miromax Paintless Dent Repair, National Title Solutions, Inc., Wholey Granoly, RPFPC (Retired Professional Football Players of Chicago), Right Pharmacy, The Cafe 322 Urban Bistro, U.S. Army (Recruiting), State Representative Dagmara Avelar, High Quality Flooring, Life Purpose Chiropractic to our roster of members. We’re excited for our future relationships with these businesses and appreciate their investment in Bolingbrook and the BACC.

Wish we had gotten to know you better

In May we said goodbye to Groot Industries, Discount Tire, Custom Community Creations, Two Rivers Dental P.C, Solace Dental Group, Fuel The Masses Entertainment, Colonial Life, T-Mobile Business and Vallen Distribution.
