PIKE COUNTY - The Board of Directors of the Pike County Chamber of Commerce respectfully apologizes to the Jewish Community for scheduling our Chamber Champions Awards Dinner on the Jewish Holy Day of Yom Kippur (Sept. 30).   

It was an unfortunate oversight on our part. We truly appreciate the members of the Jewish faith who brought this to our attention. The Chamber never willingly wanted to offend any faith and we are truly sorry. It is most important that we be respectful to all faiths. So to all of our neighbors and friends from the Jewish faith please accept our apologies. 

We hope you will join us on the new date November 3 to celebrate our Chamber Champions at Silver Birches Restaurant on Lake Wallenpaupack.
