This is about one of those "back burner" issues for some of you. I'd like to see you move it up front and really start something cooking.
Let me tell you about an experience I had Thursday afternoon, May 22nd. There was an "After Hours" get-together for members of the business community sponsored by the Ellaville-Schley County Chamber of Commerce and held at Southern Paint and Body Shop in Ellaville.
It was a real nice event hosted by Jeff Williams and his family. They had some delicious refreshments on hand, and gave out a lot of door prizes. (I drew the prize for an oil change, and could have kicked myself for having gotten one just the day before. Oh, well, I'll need anoher oil change in due time.)
What I came away with, besides my door prize, was a very positive impression of business people in Ellaville and Schley County. They are moving forward, and they are making a difference.
Recognizing the truth that there is strength in numbers, many local business owners are members and supporters of the Chamber of Commerce. Together they are building a stronger economy for their area, and everyone will benefit from their can-do spirit.
The chamber's motto is "Schley County Spirit of Success." If you attended the "After Hours" gathering, you were a part of this forward looking "spirit." It is contagious.
Ellaville and Schley County are up and coming. I hope you, as a business owner, are a part of the progress. If chamber membership has been on the "back burner" in your case, you owe it to yourself and your business to move it up front.
Be a part of an organization that is actively engaged in making Ellaville and Schley County a great place to live and raise a family. The "spirit" is moving, and all of us business owners collectively can move forward with it.
Chamber membership is a wise investment in your community, and that means an investment in your business. Be a part of it. Call 229-937-2262 for more information and to get an application.
