The 51st Annual Potsdam Summer Festival was a great success in 2018. Thanks to JD Meyers for producing the video, capturing all the Summerfest fun!
Meet Maggie McKenna! You may have seen her around Potsdam as a Village Trustee, a board member of the Potsdam Food Co-op, most recently worked at the Potsdam Public Library, and she organizes the Ives Park Concert Series as the director of the nonprofit What a Raquette Music & Dance.
Maggie says, “I look forward to updating the organization including adding new member benefits, enlivening annual events, and making the Market Street office an inviting place. I’m totally committed to making Potsdam the very best place it can be!”
Stop in to the office Monday – Friday 9am – noon, or email her at email@example.com to set up a time to meet!
The SUNY Potsdam men’s hockey team spruced up Ives Park during the community-wide spring clean-up day.
The Potsdam Chamber Bowling Fun Night is coming up on March 22nd. We are looking for 16 lane sponsors and a food sponsor. Sponsors can send a team of 4-5 people to play the lane or can decide to keep the lane “open” for others to sign up to use instead. We will also have some additional friendly competitive games as well for attendees. To learn more about being a lane sponsor or food sponsor contact Janice at 315-265-4565.

The Potsdam Chamber’s annual hockey night fundraiser supports the Potsdam Summer Festival and other community events. For every $13 ticket the chamber sells, we keep $10 thanks to the generous support of Clarkson Golden Knights Hockey.
This Feb. 23rd game versus Princeton is looking to be quite a match up. Clarkson lost its road game to Princeton earlier this month, and wants to come out on top at home.
Tickets are available at the chamber office, 24 Market Street. We accept cash, check, and credit. Tickets can also be ordered online and then picked up at the office, at the pre-game mixer at Maxfield’s or at the chamber table in the lobby of Cheel Arena just before the game.
Three chamber ticketholders will be chosen to go onto the ice during the first intermission to participate in a game to win prizes. Another ticketholder will be chosen for the Money Grab- sponsored by North Country Savings Bank- a chance to win up to $100.
Chamber of Commerce members, friends and the general public came out for the ribbon cutting celebration for Soul Waffle, Potsdam’s place to go for waffles of every description. The event highlighted dinner and dessert waffles with samples from the menu.
“If we can get it into a waffle iron, chances are we can make a waffle out of it.”
