Please update your records and remove the P.O. Box 883 from the Chamber’s address. We have not had that box for a couple of years but a lot of members have not updated their records and the Post Office has requested it to be updated and it’s causing problems with payments and mailings. The correct mailing address for all mail to the Chamber is Pike County Chamber of Commerce, 209 East Harford Street, Milford, PA 18337. Thank you for your help.
