We Will Get Through This Together

March 18, 2020 (Updated 3-19-20)

Greetings Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce Members and Businesses.

As the Chairman of the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce, I want to take a moment to remind you that during this difficult time, We are all in this together. Your Pleasure Island Chamber is here for you, and ALL businesses and organizations in Carolina and Kure Beaches. 

One thing about this island is its tremendous sense of community, and its spirit and resilience in the face of adversity. This crisis may feel daunting now, but there will be a comeback and we will come back stronger than ever. Whether you are a Chamber member or not, we are here for you and will do whatever we can to help you continue to operate. 

As part of our effort to assist local businesses and help them stay connected, we will send out regular emails, post regular updates to our website and Facebook page, and work to identify ways to assist you. We have listed several resources below that you can contact immediately. The Pleasure Island Chamber office and the Town of Carolina Beach offices will closed to the Public at Noon on Thursday, March 19th, 2020. Give us call at 910-458-8434 and we will answer your questions and offer business resources.   We will get through this together. #PleasureIslandChamberStrong!
