Chamber banquet honoring local businesses

By: By Kaitlin Norris - Contributing columnist

February is such a busy and exciting month for the Chamber of Commerce. We have our Annual Chamber Meeting/ Celebration on Feb. 23. This is the perfect time for the Chamber as well as our members to celebrate the past year and the year to come.

It is also the perfect opportunity to continue to provide what the Chamber is here to help our businesses with, a chance to connect, network, and collaborate together. We also recognize and highlight Chamber businesses that have been nominated because of their community involvement and business success.

Each year we pick on winner in the categories of Business Person of the Year, Small Business Excellence Award, and Entrepreneurial Success. Please join us starting at 5:30 p.m. to celebrate what the Chamber stands for and all of the businesses that support us!

A huge congratulations to our Member of the Week, The Ashford Inn. As many of you are aware, this is the place to go for lunch meetings, dinner meetings, etc. The food is phenomenal, and the owners Eric and Julie Stadig along with their staff provide the best customer service!

Join us this Monday, Feb. 8 at 10:30 a.m. to celebrate our Member of the Week, Ambassador Personnel, Inc. They are a staffing agency for employers or people looking for jobs. They are located at 222 West Elizabeth Street in Clinton.

The Chamber is a wonderful tool to get your business more involved in the community and to broaden your contacts and your clientele. We offer multiple events and occasions that give you that opportunity. For any information about the Chamber or the events and opportunities that we offer I encourage you to contact us at 910-592-6177, visit us at 414 Warsaw Road, Clinton, or email us at
