SOMERSET, NJ - The Franklin Township Chamber of Commerce held its third monthly meeting last Thursday, at the local AT&T Retail store on Easton Avenue. 

Current chamber members and non-chamber members had the opportunity to network with local business owners.

"It was a good and productive gathering with some new faces showing up and willingness to participate," Chamber Board member, Dr. Peter Stavriandis said. "It seems to me that if we keep the momentum and take advantage of it, we will be able to reach our goals sooner rather than later."
