Chris Black, President, SWMCC
Summer has officially begun, and we are feeling the heat. Not only outside but also in our partner’s businesses. We continue to see growth and new business coming to our area and our partners are joining in our vision and our strategies for empowering business. Our partners are volunteering at events, donating their time, mon-ey, and resources, and sharing their business knowledge with oth-ers. It is for these reasons, that we are so proud to call them our partners and are forever grateful for their service to our chamber.
Speaking of hot, we are getting geared up for Kid’s Day (aka the hottest day of the year). Tina, the event committee, and her staff are going all out this year and plan to make this the largest Kid’s Day event yet. We will be giving away an estimated 1200 book-bags full of school supplies and a variety of school uniforms. As always, we can use your support with this event either by volun-teering your time or donating school supplies. If you’d like to partic-ipate as a vendor or volunteer, please reach out to the office to get signed up.
You don’t want to miss our July Business Luncheon. You will hear from some of your favorite local non-profits and listen to what they are doing right here in our own back yard. We will be awarding our 2nd Annual Non-Profit Give Back. The TALL Scholarship Program will begin soon for this year also. We’ve received a record number of applications this year and are excited to review them and select our 2023 recipients.
