Join us on Monday, May 22, to celebrate our Member of the Week, Smithfield Packing. We will start the networking at 10:30 a.m. and it will be located at 424 Railroad Street here in Clinton. This is a great opportunity to network with other Chamber members during business hours and to celebrate the support that Smithfield gives our community.

Come out on Monday June 12 at 3 p.m. for a Ribbon Cutting ceremony at Tucker and Tucker Towing. They have done a lot of renovations to their towing business and we would like to congratulate them for their expansion and dedication to our community. It will be located at 58 Donald Tucker Road in Autryville. We hope to see you there.

Bring your business card and let the Chamber work for you at our June Business After Hours. We will be networking at Tim’s Gifts from 5:30-7 p.m. at their location, 112 Northeast Blvd. Light snacks and drinks will be provided and is another great chance to network with other businesses .

I encourage you to get involved with the Chamber of Commerce. As an individual or business member, take advantage of the opportunities to network, advertise, attend educational seminars, and more.
