It was another great afternoon and evening of networking at this year's Eastern Monmouth Area Chamber of Commerce Super Expo at Branches in West Long Branch.

We've all been through a lot in the past six months, so it was great to see area business people gather for an important day of business. As usual, the chamber did a wonderful job of putting together a terrific event and Branches staff did a fabulous job as well.

And it was great seeing so many people stopping by to check out some great businesses and all they have to offer. I heard many stories about Sandy as I made my way around the Expo, and it was clear that everyone was doing their best to get back to some level of normalcy, and I think the Super Expo was a big step in that direction.

Great to see everyone at Branches yesterday, and good luck to each and every one of you!
