I’m in, are you? WHY I’M IN: “I’m in the Maplewood Chamber because I believe every business in town should join as it provides education on business matters as well as a convenient forum for initiating business relationships. Over the years I’ve made friends, done business with some, and given and received help with various business activities and I find that very fulfilling.” WHAT: “I am the Publisher of TAPinto SOMA where We Deliver Your Neighborhood News Online, serving residents and businesses alike.” WHAT IS IT ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS THAT GETS YOU UP IN THE MORNING: “I have worked in several other businesses during the course of my career and this one is perfect for me because I like meeting and helping people. I’ve lived in Maplewood and South Orange for 32 years and during the five years that I’ve been publisher of the TAPinto SOMA edition, I’ve become more connected here than ever.” WHO: Fred Smith (Fredric M. Smith), Publisher, TAPinto SOMA.
