Chamber visits Capital City with students

By: By Kaitlin Norris - Contributing columnist

I have thoroughly enjoyed this week! The weather has been warm, the sky has been clear, and I was able to spend an entire day with inspiring juniors in high school touring our Capital City.

I have been a part of the Chamber for a little over two months now and I can honestly say that I have seen how being involved and being a part of the Chamber is not just beneficial for your business but for the community. Being a part of the Chamber is more than just a membership, it is a business family.

Seeing the members take part in our programs such as Junior and Adult Leadership, our Coat Closet, and many more shows me that they are focused on more than their business, they are focused on their community. A close community leads to more local shopping and closer connections!

My day with the Junior Leadership touring our Capital City was such an eye opening experience. Hopefully, most of us have had the opportunity to tour our Governor’s Mansion, our Legislative Building, and our Capitol Building. If not, then you may want to think about getting involved with our Adult Leadership Program.

Yesterday was an eye opener because as I observed the juniors from the surrounding high schools I noticed inspiration in their eyes, and the interest that they had in government and the history of our great state. I felt proud to know that the Chamber helped make that inspiration possible and that we are investing in the younger generation.

Come out and enjoy this beautiful weather Monday morning at 10:30 a.m. at 414 Warsaw Road, Clinton to celebrate our Member of the week, The Sampson County Agri-Expo Center. Member of the Week highlights our members every Monday morning and gives them a chance to explain their business and what they can do for you. Come out to support our Chamber members Monday mornings, there are even Krispy Kreme donuts.

For any information about our events or what we can do for you, please do not hesitate to call the Chamber of Commerce at 910-592-6177 or email us at I encourage you all to get involved in the Chamber. We offer a lot of unlimited opportunities for you and your business. Let the Chamber work for you.
