MILLBURN, NJ - On Wednesday the Millburn Short Hills Chamber of Commerce celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the Millburn Courtyard with an Oktoberfest celebration featuring beer, barbeque and friends from across the community. Leaders from small and large businesses across varied fields met to exchange ideas and as well as some laughs with colleagues and township residents alike. 

In true Bavarian tradition, Mayor Ted Bourke was invited to tap the first keg officially opening the evening's festivities. High Point Brewing Co., a New Jersey-based brewery located in Butler, brought their award winning Ramstein Oktoberfest featuring malt, hops, and yeast all imported from Germany served in a gravity keg.  

As the sun began to set, Executive Director Roxanne Giacalone opined on the 200 plus members of the Millburn/Short Hills Chamber of Commerce and the importance of such events. “These are lasting relationships. There is something to be said about face to face. We can all go on social media, but there is no face – this is real networking.”

Reflecting on the 10th Anniversary of the Millburn Courtyard Project Giacalone continued, “We can say Millburn is always making improvements. This is an award-winning design; the Best of the Best Excellence Award for Placemaking. It was an inconvenience then but look at it now, and it has been beautifully maintained by the town.” 

As the crowd swelled, Millburn School Board vice president Emily Jaffe said “I think it is really important for all members of the community to work together and support one another; the residents, the Township Committee, the Board of Education. It is really great to see everyone talking and sharing ideas and working together.” 

Mayor Ted Bourke, when asked about the chamber of commerce and what he saw for the future of business in Millburn/Short Hills said, “The chamber is an important part of the business community.  Along with the Complete Streets project, the chamber is important to revitalizing downtown and providing business opportunities throughout the area. We are going to have the most awesome pedestrian friendly environment that you can walk around and enjoy the shopping experience. You want to buy; you buy online. You want to shop, you want to enjoy yourself; this is going to be a great experience for shoppers.” 

The Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce is a privately funded organization comprised of business leaders dedicated to the interests of Millburn Township. It is committed to supporting, preserving and developing business in Millburn/Short Hills. More information can be found on their website: http://millburnshorthillschamber.org.  

The Chamber's next event is the Millburn/Short Hills Street Fair on Sunday, September 25.
