As most of you now know, Danielle Coello is the new Chamber administrative assistant. Please come out and welcome her to the Chamber. She has been here now for about three weeks and has already been such a huge help to myself and to the Chamber. Danielle is a local of Clinton and truly has a heart for this community. Because of Danielle, I am able to get out in the community and visit local businesses to tell them more about what the Chamber does, what it is, and what we stand for. It is all about letting the Chamber work for you.
I had the opportunity to speak to the Clinton’s Lion Club this past week and what a wonderful group they are. My first couple of words to the Lion’s Club was that like them, I consider the Chamber of Commerce like a family. Businesses are participating for the same reasons and they are willing to help and support each other, just like the Lion’s Club and many other civic groups do. I love knowing that people are interested in what the Chamber is doing and how we are benefiting the community. I am happy to let people know my plans for the coming years for not just the Chamber but for the Sampson County business community.
I love using the word Sampson and not just Clinton. Sampson County as a whole is who the Chamber represents, and I plan to spend this coming year getting all of the Sampson County towns involved in the Chamber and getting their businesses showcased and on the map. We offer many benefits to businesses and we encourage you to get more involved in the Chamber. You would be amazed at what we can do for you!
A great way to start getting involved is by coming to our Member of the Week. Join us this Monday at International Minute Press. They are located at 103 Morisey Blvd., Clinton. Member of the Week starts at 10:30 a.m., so take some time and come out and support them.
For those of you who did not get a chance to go out this Saturday for the Super Sprint Triathlon, you missed an exciting day. With over 140 participants, we had downtown Clinton booming. The Chamber would like to give a big congratulations to all who participated in this event! Hard work really does pay off!
For any information about the Chamber, our events, or the opportunities that we offer contact us at 910-592-6177, visit us at 414 Warsaw Road, Clinton, or email us at [email protected]
