D James Marketing
“No Business Should Fail”
One of the busiest and most tenacious members of our business community is Doreen Guma of D. James Marketing, a long-time member of our chamber of commerce and a member of our Board.
D. James Marketing’s success is due to Doreen‘s skills in strategic business planning which she learned through her education and corporate work experience in quality improvement. She is hands on and supports each marketing customer in creating a positive public image, building or re-building a positive reputation, and securing customer satisfaction. Doreen’s motto, ‘no business should fail’ speaks to her perspective on assisting clients fine tune their promotional and marketing needs for them to achieve success.
Doreen is a tremendous asset to the Port Jefferson Station Chamber of Commerce. Her Time to Play foundation (www.timetoplay.org) is an ‘enjoy life’ advocacy non-profit, which focuses on finding solutions to personal and organization challenges. She and husband James are also members of the Red Knights Charity organization and are currently working to collect 7,000 teddy bears for holiday gifts provided by Brookhaven Town Interface.

Jenn at the Keep Pride Rally
Welcome Community friends,
We are gathered here today to keep PRIDE in Port Jefferson Station. We LOVE our Community! Our community has so many wonderful things to offer and the best local businesses around.
We can not let bad publicity of our local area lower our expectations of where we live, work, shop, and play! We as a community are better than that.
The local business in this area and shopping center are hurting. They need the support of the community! Even though some of you choose to not shop here any longer, these wonderful local businesses still donate their time, money, and goods to our schools, churches and other organizations that we belong to. Think about that!
The small business is the back bone in every community and when an area within is threatening their livelihood, we the community need to say that we will not let that happen. Let our Voices be heard and our Presence be known that this community will be here to support our local businesses, no matter what!
