Chamber to host business workshop

The Otsego County Chamber of Commerce and the Small Business Development Center outreach at the State University College at Oneonta will be hosting a minority and women-owned business workshop.

The workshop will take place at the Otsego Grille in Morris Hall at SUNY Oneonta on Sept. 18 from noon. to 3:30 p.m. Registration should be done ahead of time by calling the Otsego County Chamber of Commerce by noon on the day of the event. The chamber’s number is 432-4500. The cost of the workshop is $15.

The workshop will feature state officials, and will teach how to become certified as a minority or women-owned business enterprise, as well as how to do business with state government. Those who have gone through the MWBE process will also be speaking.

“I think it’s a very exciting opportunity to create awareness,” said Otsego County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Barbara Ann Heegan.


Tri-Town Screening will be having its grand opening Sept. 23 at 5 a.m.

The business will be located at 40 Main St. in Afton, and will provide biometric screenings. The screenings will include glucose testing and a finger-stick test for fasting or non-fasting cholesterol. The exam also includes readings of height, weight, body mass index, and blood pressure.

Results will be given within 15 minutes and the cost of the exam is $25.

Tri-Town Screening is not yet accepting insurance, but plans on doing so in the near future.


Delaware County Tactical will be holding an open house Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Located at state Highway 23 in Stamford, Delaware County Tactical is a new pellet gun shooting range and pro shop.

Delaware County Tactical owner and instructor Alan Kaplan, a former Army combat medic, was inspired to start his business after getting certified as a handgun instructor at Sig Sauer Academy in Epping, N.H., and being struck by the high price of ammunition. As a less-costly shooting alternative, Kaplan decided to create a pellet gun range.
