In these strange economic times, almost all of us care about how business is going locally.  Either we’re business owners, employees, or customers.  Or all three! To let you know some of what is happening, our guest on the Monday March 29, Chris Wolf Show was Tom Peaco,  Executive Director of the Pen Bay Chamber of Commerce.

The Pen Bay Chamber is the third largest in Maine, with close to 900 members. The Chamber is the voice of business and tourism in the Camden/Rockland Region, encompassing over 20 communities within and surrounding Knox County.
