The Christmas Parade will take place today, December 1st! We will be starting slightly early at 11:45 in the hopes we can avoid any bad weather. All parade participants should be behind Kohl’s and ready to go for an 11:45am start. See you all there!
On April 16th, the Chamber of Commerce of the Mastics & Shirley had 50 American flags installed along Montauk Highway through Mastic and Shirley. By now you have probably seen how wonderful and patriotic these flags make this busy corridor through our towns look. This was phase 1 of the project. Phase 2 will begin […]
For everyone who lives and works in the Mastic-Shirley area, please keep an eye out for a big change coming to our towns. The Chamber has been working hard for almost a year on a project that will finally be coming to fruition. We’re extremely excited and can’t wait for everyone to see what’s coming! […]
First, we’ like to thank Jim Tullo, Deputy Director of the Brookhaven Industrial Development Agency, for speaking at this month’s meeting.

This month’s general meeting was held on Monday, June 11th at the Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge, located at 40 Smith Road in Shirley, NY. It was a real pleasure to have a meeting at such a beautiful venue and many members were in attendance. The Chamber provided a free lunch to all who came.
We had a great meeting May 14th at the Moriches Bay Diner. Kevin O’Brien & Glenn Graham presented their plans for 3 Mobil stations that they have in the planning stages. Two are existing and one will be newly constructed. They are all planned to have a mini-mart and will be newly refurbished.
Our March 12th general meeting was held at Moriches Bay Diner where members enjoyed a delicious dinner from a prix fixe menu. Turnout was a bit lighter than normal but still good considering the impending snow storm. It was another great opportunity for local business people to get together and do a little networking.
