Upcoming Community Events
Plus More Chamber Member Events
Stephanie N Sgroi Agency
Insurance is “All in the Family” for our member, Stephanie Sgroi. Stephanie has been the State Farm agent in Port Jefferson Station, since 2002. She teamed up with her husband David Kirshner nine years ago and they employ their cousin and kids, among others. David tells me that referrals are the lifeblood of their business and they reward their customers who refer a friend or family member.
“I love what I do, every single day. I have a fantastic, diverse team and each brings a different perspective and strength to our business,” says Stephanie. Their staff includes four bilingual agents, including an agent who speaks Mandarin.
State Farm has been a member of the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce for years. David says that their membership allows them to network, share best practices and provides an opportunity to invest in this community. Not only are Stephanie and David active members, their son has earned community service hours volunteering at our business to community events at the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce Train Car. Thank you!
Stephanie Sgroi sponsors the local Polar Plunge event, raising money for the New York Special Olympics. They have also funded with State Farm, the refurbishing of damaged vehicles, donating them to charities such as Hope House Ministries and local veterans. Their relationships, professionalism and honesty makes them a stand-out. They’re located at 612 Route 112 in Port Jefferson Station next to “Save A Pet”.
Polar Express Success
What a huge success! Our Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce does it again! A series of four business to community events- culminated on Sunday Dec 16, 2018 with the final viewing of ‘The Polar Express’ movie nights, inside our antique chamber train car at the corner of NYS RTE 112 and 347- offered with all the trimmings including ‘I Believe’ jingle bells tied in ribbon like those in the film, – gifted to all children, plus Polar Express Movie poster-backdrop Portraits, as well as those with Santa who surprised children at the close of the film – photos which families access from our pjstchamber.com site. This and more all due to extraordinary organization skills of our chamber Vice President, Larry Ryan, manager of Port Jeff Bowl and support of Chamber directors.

Jenn at the Keep Pride Rally
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!

By assisting new and existing business firms, the Small Business Development Center at Stony Brook contributes to the stability and growth of the small business sector and the economy of Long Island.
