WEBSTER – The Webster-Dudley-Chamber of Commerce invites local businesses to attend its 2021 Annual Meeting, to be held June 8 from 5:30- 7:30 p.m. at the Samuel Slater Experience in Webster.

This will be the first public event hosted at the museum, which will open officially this summer. Attendees at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting will be given preview tours of the interactive, 4-D, exhibits, which tell the story of Samuel Slater, known as the Father of the American Industrial Revolution, and the textile manufacturing that made Webster a boomtown in the 1800s.  

The formal Chamber meeting will be held outside in a tent on the lawn behind the Samuel Slater Experience, allowing social networking while social distancing. The agenda includes a review of the past year by Chamber President Ross Lavoie, and the election of members of the Board of Directors for 2021.
