A Brief History of Our Chamber
By Chamber President William Eaton
The Chamber of Commerce of Lake Station was
established back in 1955 by group of local business
owners Those business owners felt the need to strengthen
the business community by joining forces to create
one-voice system that could handle issues that may
involve their business due to politics, the environment,
economy and/or community. Over the last 57 years, the
Chamber has been very active in addressing many of the
aforementioned issues, along with spearheading many
economic projects (Brochures, City Maps, Industrial
site locations) to generate growth and encourage new
businesses, both small and large. The chamber has also
hosted Festivals, the 4th July Parade, Prayer Breakfast
and many other events to draw the public within and
outside our community to support our local businesses.
Thank You For Shopping Lake Station First!
Our Mission Statement
The Lake Station Chamber of Commerce will champion
issues facing businesses, focusing on the improvement
of the quality of life in our community: and be a team
consisting of volunteer Board of Directors and community
members, providing a catalyst for prosperity and growth!
