Metuchen is a warm and welcoming community, proud of its heritage and diversity. On our tree-lined streets you will find the ideal combination of friendly people, a vibrant downtown, a great school system and easy commute to New York that has set Metuchen apart.
Fifteen years ago I was asked to join the Board of Directors of the Metuchen Chamber of Commerce. I must admit that I really didn’t have a clear understanding of all of the things the Chamber did other than promote business. Over these many years I remain in awe of all the wonderful events the Chamber sponsors, with the hope of increasing business for our local merchants and improving the quality of life for the entire Metuchen Community.
The Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce’s involvement in the community ranges from our Summer Classic Car Cruise Night, to our wonderful newsletter – the Chamber Connection, to two amazing parades each year, to our Farmer’s Market and our wonderful collaboration with The Arts Council known as the Junebug ArtFest, and that isn’t even everything we do! The Chamber also sponsors the Scarecrows on Main Festival in October and the Metuchen Country Fair which has been an annual event for over 49 years, bringing thousands of people to Main Street each year.
So, welcome to Metuchen! I look forward to meeting you in one of our many excellent restaurants or at one of our countless chamber events.
2012 Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce, President
