The chamber invites you to join our Women’s Network Group for a complimentary meeting. The group meets from 8 to 9 a.m. on the first Wednesday of each month at Shores of Turtle Creek, 7908 Winn Road, Spring Grove.

The Women’s Network Group is a dynamic group of business women who are motivated to promote business in our communities. At the next meeting Jan. 9, we will be presenting a $1,647 donation to the Centegra Breast Center. These funds were raised with a Purse Raffle and the efforts of the ladies in the Women's Networking Group. Thank you all!

Our chamber will offer a "Business After 5" for those who can't take the time off from their busy day to attend our luncheons. These networking meetings are similar to our luncheons and draw a new crowd. We are scheduled to meet at Chef Davito's Steakhouse & Italian Restaurant, 4000 N. Johnsburg Road, Johnsburg, from 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 12. A buffet-style dinner will include soft drinks, coffee, and hot tea.

Mark your calendar to attend our Health, Home and Business Expo from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 9 at the Nippersink Middle School in Richmond. This year we will have a variety of businesses that will be promoting the products and services they have to offer. Along with our local businesses, we will be holding a more interactive Expo, with demonstrations, arts & crafts vendors, and raffles. Come discover what our area businesses can do for you. Remember, shopping local supports the community you live in. If you are interested in having a display in our Expo, contact the chamber office or our website for further details.
