Bob Hinkle - President, Spring Grove Area Chamber of CommerceThank you for visiting the Spring Grove Area Chamber of Commerce website. As another year begins, I am looking forward to stepping into the role as president and continuing the momentum started by our previous President, Randy Turner, as well as the committee members and volunteers who have given countless hours of their time to see our organization grow. Without the help and support of our members we would not have had the success and growth we saw in 2012.

I feel 2012 was a great year for the Chamber. We grew our membership to 71 members, adopted the newest section of the Hanover Trolley Trail, grew our involvement in Septemberfest, held the first annual Chamber Checkout Challenge, assisted in setting up the Spring Grove GeoTrail and established a 5-year strategic plan. The strategic plan will guide the Chamber in fulfilling its mission of “promoting local commerce and the community by fostering professional relationships while preserving the unique characteristics of the Spring Grove area.

If you are interested in learning more about what the Spring Grove Area Chamber of Commerce has to offer and what we’re doing in the Spring Grove community, feel free to attend an upcoming breakfast meeting, business after hours event or email me at We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting.

Respectfully yours,

Bob Hinkle
Spring Grove Area Chamber of Commerce
