June 20, 2022 Presentation of our PJS/T Chamber of Commerce $500 scholarship winner, Daniel Dein, Comsewogue High School Senior. Thank you to our sponsor The Meadow Club.
Members of the PJS/T Chamber of Commerce participated in the Open House at the Calverton Food Incubator in June
The Incubator provides facility support and a structured growth pathway to enable food product companies to develop and grow on Long Island. The businesses and organizations collaborated and networked with 70+ companies that are incubator members.
The Board of Directors of the Chamber of Commerce meet with Councilman Kornreich at the Train Car Park fence, newly installed by Town of Brookhaven.
The PJS/T Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors review the plans for paving inside the Train Car Park. Parking spaces will be enhanced.
It is hoped the Town Parks Dept. will complete the stage and other improvements by July for this season’s ‘Summer Concert Wednesdays’, which will include a BMX show, and on August 3rd, Shakespeare in the park. We are always working with our local electeds for our members. The Train Car Park provides ample networking and free table opportunities for members. Stay tuned.
Chamber Mission Statement
The Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber’s mission is to be a catalyst for economic growth for our members and the community through advocacy, education and community enhancement.
A Bank Lends a Hand
The Wednesday Summer Concert Series is in full swing and Dawn Danielsen, Branch Manager of Island Federal Credit Union participates in every one of the events. Island Federal is a loyal member of Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce. This year, they are the postcard sponsor for the series of live performances at the Train Car Park. Thank you, Dawn.
Making the most of the well attended concerts so far, Dawn happily prepares for the next. With marketing materials, Island Federal staffer by her side, and a smile, she meets members of the local community at the events. Whether it is information on low car loans rates, or home equity lines of credit, Island Federal is at the ready.
“This is my community. I grew up here. My children and I all graduated from Comsewogue School District. I love being here, a part of the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce. It is respected for promoting businesses,” Dawn explained.
Island Federal Credit Union is a Member-Service Credit Union. Dawn describes the pride she has in her staff and how they operate. She explains their training program and how they provide personal attention. They do banking face to face. Dawn’s Selden branch has received letters from members praising the service they received.
In the communities around us, they are a staple. They have branches on the Stony Brook University campus, as well as Stony Brook Medicine, easterly, in Riverhead and deep into Nassau County.
Their work goes way beyond banking. They have a partnership with Stony Brook University and Medicine. During the height of the pandemic, Island Federal supported the staff of Stony Brook Medicine with lunches, dinners and snacks. They sponsor National Nurses Week at the hospital by sending baskets of snacks and flowers to the hospital and Veterans Home nurses.
Additionally, they are an annual supporter of the Stony Brook Film Festival
For information on this and more contact Island Federal Credit Union at www.islandfcu.org, call 631.851.1100 or visit them at 920 Middle Country Road, Selden.
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!
