It is with deep sadness that the Midstate Chamber of Commerce mourns the passing of Sanford S. Shorr on February 1, 2016. Born on April 8, 1919, Sandy had been the Executive Director of the Greater Meriden Chamber of Commerce for more than 29 years, starting at the Meriden Chamber in 1956. Among his many accomplishments, Sandy recognized the truly regional feel of central Connecticut and added the word "Greater" in 1957.
