Mt. Kisco, NY-- The Sidewalk Sales Days is an easy event to get lost in, with storefronts moved to tents and tables along South Moger Avenue for the better part of two days.
Dan Taplitz, a member of the Chamber of Commerce and head of Right Click Solutions, moved to Mt. Kisco 10 years ago. He brought along not only his business, but also his interest in getting involved in the community.
Its important for me. This is where Im probably spending the next 30 years of my life, said Taplitz. Its important for me to bring my family here and to build a nice relationship with a lot of other small businesses, because small businesses run America, as we know.
Another member of the Chamber, Suzanne Siebert, was at her station for the first day of the Sidewalk Sales. The finance manager of Peoples United Bank knows that its not only the vendors, but those who volunteer, who helped make the days possible.
It really came to life because of all the help," she said. "The volunteers putting everything together really went a long way.
Also taking in the event was the towns Mayor, J. Michael Cindrich, who said the sale was already a success because of the work put into it.
As usual, I think the Chambers doing a great job. Theyve really become the fabric of the business community, and were encouraging people to get more involved with them," he said. If we all put our heads together, we can come up with solutions, and thats what the Chambers for. Ive been working with them for several years on a variety of issues, and its important to the community to be able to recognize the problems and collectively think about them.
