2 TOURISM LUNCHEON WITH MAYOR KALISZ FROM NEW BEDFORD Viktorija Yergatian Tourism Director The annual tourism program of the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce took place on Thursday, May 23, 2002 at Arrowhead Acres in Uxbridge and was a huge success. Mayor Kalisz of New Bedford was the speaker for the event and spoke on AHA! (Arts, History and Architecture), a monthly arts and culture night held on the second Thursday of each month. On AHA! Nights, galleries, museums and cultural institutions are open free to the public. There are various art exhibits, concerts and themed programs along with open retail shops and restaurants. The AHA! Program has had a significant economic impact on the city of New Bedford. Approximately fifteen dollars has been generated for every state dollar spent in grant money, totaling $332,905. Visitation increased 26.7 percent with 20,758 reported visitations since the program began. Many of the wonderful tourism attractions of the Blackstone Valley were showcased at the event. Over 20 tourism exhibitors were set up for the attendees to visit. The event itself took place at one of the Blackstone Valley's tourism sites, Arrowhead Acres. Arrowhead Acres is a 73-acre Christmas tree farm that offers "choose and cut" trees and tree tagging. The farm also offers hayrides and a petting zoo along with facilities for corporate outings, weddings and family events. The first ever Blackstone Valley Tourism Coupon Book was introduced. The coupon book was designed to offer discounts to all of the many tourism attractions and sites that are available in the Blackstone Valley, along with fun and interesting facts. The coupon book was created to show Valley residents what is available for tourism attractions in their own region. The Tourism Committee of the Blackstone Valley Chamber or Commerce is looking to expand this project as a fundraiser for tourism efforts. Representative Paul Kujawski was given the Tourism Friend Award from the Tourism Committee of the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce. Representative Kujawski has been extremely instrumental with all of the Blackstone Valley tourism efforts and most importantly with the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority tourism grants, which is the Tourism Committees' primary funding source. Updates on tourism in the Blackstone Valley were given at the event. Visitor numbers continue to grow to the Blackstone Valley and local businesses are expanding as a direct result of this growth. Both Southwick's Zoo and Arrowhead Acres have had an increase in business of 20% over the last year. Southwick's just completed an expansion project and Arrowhead Acres is in the process of turning their seasonal facility into a year-round facility. Quaker Inn and Conference Center continues to run at 100% occupancy on all weekends in the spring, summer and fall. The Tourism Committee has doubled in size and continues to work in partnership with the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor Commission and the Rhode Island Tourism Council to promote tourism to the region. Through their efforts in a marketing campaign to 150 travel writers, 30 stories have been written on the Blackstone Valley in publications such as AAA, New England Travel and Life, New York News Day, New York Post, New London Day, Boston Herald, Connecticut Post, Providence Journal and the Worcester Telegram and Gazette. Mayor Kalisz of New Bedford, Julie Riendeau, Representative Paul Kujawski (Recipient of Tourism Friend Award) and Jeff Hickson. The Tourism Committee has also just produced the second annual bi-state visitor's guide along with a new farm stand brochure, and bed and breakfast brochure. Brochure racks have been placed in 26 locations throughout the Blackstone Valley to accommodate the heavy foot traffic of visitors to the Blackstone Valley. Overall, tourism continues to grow in the Blackstone Valley. 2

4 APRIL'S NETWORKING LUNCH PROGRAM CELEBRATES ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANTS DAY Claudia Dexter Project & Events Director On Wednesday April 24, 2002, the BVCC helped Chamber members celebrate Administrative Assistants Day with a Networking Lunch Program at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Sutton. Thanks to the leadership and sponsorship from Koopman Lumber Company, the BVCC was able to present Mark Harris of Harris Development Co., based in Chicago. Harris, who educated and entertained us with a brief seminar on "Coaching for Success" gave a valuable presentation that business people at every level could relate to. From maximizing your employees' potential to learning how to problem solve through coaching, Harris initiated interactive exercises to reveal what makes us tick. Of the 142 members who attended, 37 were administrative assistants who received two complimentary movie tickets sponsored by the Elm Draught House Cinema in Millbury. The big prize of the day was a chance to win a beautiful Weber Grill valued at $900, with additional door prizes of interior house paint all donated by True Value and Koopman Lumber Company. The Chamber thanks Platinum Valley Leaders UniBank and Heritage Design Group for their continuous support throughout the year. Special recognition and appreciation goes to Koopman Lumber Company.

9 A SUCCESS STORY... EARTH-FRIENDLY PRINTING SAVES DOLLARS AND MAKES SENSE IN MILLBURY Positioning itself for growth in the Blackstone Valley, Environmental Printing Alternatives has relocated from Worcester to 175 West Main Street in Millbury, MA. Founded in 1994 by Michael Morin and Paul Angers, Environmental Printing Alternatives is New England's leader in affordable, high quality, earthfriendly print production. With several high profile clients in and out of the Valley, such as UniBank, Vaillancourt Folk Art, and Clark University among others, EPA prides itself on making "an offer our business customers just can't refuse," according to co-owner Mike Morin. "Our customers enjoy competitive pricing that just may put the old petroleum-based print shops out of business. It's our desire to help Blackstone Valley businesses demonstrate their own commitment to the local environment and at the same time save money on their commercial printing," says Morin. The environment has long been an important issue in the Blackstone Valley, to both businesses and consumers alike. With the ongoing development of the corridor, EPA is positioning itself as the only printer that can meet or exceed the quality, price and service demands of its business customers, while at the same time helping those same businesses show themselves as good corporate citizens in the community. The progressive printing process at Environmental Printing Alternatives is one that dramatically reduces the impact on our environment, both here in New England and around the globe, by utilizing quality recycled and "tree free" papers, along with soy-based inks. "I'm not sure which surprises our new customers more," says Morin, "the fact that earthfriendly printing looks every bit as good as non-earth friendly printing, or the fact that our prices are competitive. If I had a nickel for every time someone said to me 'I thought environmentally safe printing meant it would cost more,' my partner and I would be retired by now!" Morin and Angers are excited about EPA's move to the Blackstone Valley. They are hoping to earn both the trust and the printing business of the Valley by offering the same stellar quality and personalized service enjoyed by their existing customers. When asked 'What's the one thing you want your potential customers to know about you,' Morin doesn't hesitate. "We know that most of the time it's price that's the major driver of print buying decisions for our customers. Our point is, if you can get the price, quality and service you expect, and protect the environment at the same time, why not do it? That's what Environmental Printing Alternatives is all about." Environmental Printing Alternatives is located at 175 West Main Street in Millbury, MA.

"The face of the Blackstone Valley is changing," said UniBank's Laura Bronwell, past president of the Education Foundation.

The shovel was given to Marty in appreciation of the advocacy by the Chamber on behalf of the project over the last few years. Looking on are Millbury Selectmen Joe Coggans and Bernie Plante. By Marty Green Executive Director On Thursday, June 27, 2002, W/S Development welcomed 100 guests to the historic ground breaking of the long-awaited Shoppes at Blackstone Valley on the west side of Rt. 146 in Millbury. Chamber second vice president Mike Peterson spoke on behalf of the Chamber on the tremendous economic impact the project will have on the town of Millbury and the Valley.

13 HAPPY RETIREMENT TO SANDY HAAGSMA! Sandy Haagsma The Blackstone Valley Chamber wishes to congratulate and recognize Sandra Haagsma on her retirement after 20 years of service with the BVCC, the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce and all of its affiliate Chambers. In her honor, a formal din- ner attended by over 125 members, friends, past presidents and local dignitaries was held June 26 at the Pleasant Valley Country Club in Sutton, MA. Following the lead of Karen Chapman, Associate Director of Affiliate Chambers, all of the affiliate Chambers worked together to give Sandy the fun packed and honorable send off she well deserved. Each affiliate Chamber presented Sandy with a gift. Representing the BVCC was past president Gerry Gaudette, whom Sandy worked with from the very beginning. Sandy's contributions in developing affiliate Chambers to the Worcester Chamber began back in She helped to launch and create affiliate Chamber programs so that business regions outside of Worcester could participate in receiv- ing the same benefits as those of a larger Chamber. Starting with Blackstone Valley and Auburn, she conducted and organized networking programs, golf tournaments and annual meetings. Her leadership in managing public relations and organizing all aspects of Chamber events have garnished her the respect and admiration she leaves us with today. Through her commitment and enthusiasm, members have witnessed her contributions to a growing membership and valued her for her passion and encouraging support. We are all grateful to Sandy for setting the standard for successful networking and affiliate operations. She's a hard act to follow! We wish her an equally successful and rewarding retirement alongside her family whom she plans to spend more time with. PLANS FOR GOLF TOURNAMENT SWING INTO GEAR It's time to start preparing for the 13th annual Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation Golf Tournament! This year's tournament will be on October 7, 2002 at a fabulous new location - Kirkbrae Country Club in Lincoln, Rhode Island. The Education Foundation is grateful to the many businesses and individuals who have helped to raise over $150,000 for grants to Blackstone Valley schools over the past several years. Last year the Education Foundation was able to award grants to 16 innovative programs that helped local schools connect with their broader community. The golf tournament is fortunate this year to already have the following sponsors through the Valley Leaders program: Tournament Sponsors - Heritage Design Group, UniBank; Major Sponsors - Beaumont Rehabilitation and Nursing Centers, Gaudette Insurance Agency, Koopman Lumber Company, Massachusetts Electric, Osterman Gas Services, Riverdale Mills Corporation, Sunshine Sign Company; Partnership Sponsors - Smith-Gaudette Financial Services, Sovereign Bank of New England, Blackstone Valley Realty, Bowditch & Dewey, and Milford Federal Savings Bank. There are plenty of sponsorship opportunities still available. To become a sponsor, or if you have any questions, please contact Susan Spencer or Jeanne Pennell at or 13

14 LOCAL BUSINESS HELPS BOY SCOUTS One weekend every couple of months, W.J. Larrivee Manufacturing Company goes to work. W.J. Larrivee is best known for producing high quality woodwork in South Grafton since 1932, but on special weekends, its back warehouse is transformed into a receiving and distribution plant for the Boy Scout Troop 112 Bottle Drive. The entire troop patrols the streets of Grafton collecting cans and bottles from contributing families. All of the cans and bottles are collected into the W.J. Larrivee delivery truck and hauled to their warehouse at 8 Collette Street. Once unloaded, several scouts and adult leaders help count and sort the donations for proper record keeping. All funds raised help the scouts pay for weekend camping trips and their annual weeklong adventure at Treasure Valley. President of W.J. Larrivee, Mr. Denis Desrosiers, has been offering his services to the troop for the past ten years, and he personally oversees the entire operation from start to finish. As a father of three Eagle Scouts, Denis is no stranger to the world of scouting and the values it teaches the youth of today. "Being involved in the Boy Scouts has been one of the most positive experiences in my entire life. I enjoy seeing the boys work together as a team. I am proud of what my sons have accomplished, and it makes me happy to know that I've contributed." Denis's contributions sometimes go far beyond the realm of helpful father. "We couldn't do this without W.J. Larrivee. Denis has personally dedicated himself, his company and his financial resources to make this fundraiser profitable. He doesn't charge us for the building, the use of his truck or the materials used in sorting the thousands of cans and bottles collected. We could use a few more guys like Denis in this world," said past scoutmaster Paul Leviere. Please join Denis and Troop 112 in making their next bottle drive even more successful. Watch for advertisements and signs posted for you to drop off your cans and bottles at the W.J. Larrivee warehouse on Cross Street. If you would like more information on W.J. Larrivee, please call Christian Desrosiers, Director of Sales at (508) ONE GRAFTON COMMON, SUITE 22 GRAFTON, MA (508) Phone (800) Toll-free (508) Fax Guiding individuals and businesses through the maze of financial, tax and investment options, while providing clear directions to meet or exceed objectives.
