Welcome

From the Board Chairman

Welcome to the 2018 Community Guide from the Deerfield Bannockburn Riverwoods Chamber of Commerce, representing a thriving community supported by its residents, businesses and local organizations. The DBR Chamber, with over 400 members and over 90 years of service to the Community, is a strong proponent of its members and local residents, offering many events and activities throughout the year where people come together and participate.

The 2018 Chamber of Commerce Community Guide is a resource to help you find many local services and events. On behalf of our board members, I urge you to use this guide as a resource in connecting with the businesses that are loyal members of the Chamber and actively contribute to keeping the community strong. The guide includes all the Chamber members, schools, nonprofit organizations, clubs, associations, religious organizations, village government and entertainment in these vibrant communities. In it you will find member businesses listed in alphabetical order as well as by business category.

Thank you for supporting your local communities of Deerfield, Bannockburn and Riverwoods.
