Fashion Extravaganza
If you haven't heard, Eagle Station and the Pierce County Chamber hosted a fabulous Fashion Extravaganza on January 30!

The fashion and trade show featured bridal and evening wear, the latest in hair and makeup, beautiful floral and venue designs, and tasty treats from area caterers. It was a magical evening at Eagle Station. Shop local for all your wedding and prom needs!
Small Business Development
The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) offers access to confidential, no-cost, one-on-one professional business consulting for Georgia small business owners who want to grow or start their business.

The SBDC consultants have earned advanced degrees in business or management and have extensive practical experience to help both emerging and growing businesses design strategies to make better business decisions and reach their goals. The consulting expertise focuses on areas that are vital to accelerating the growth of businesses. Some of these areas are: marketing, strategic planning, commercialization, capital access, financial analysis and accounting assistance, international trade, minority/women business, procurement, and business management. Call the Chamber for more information.
Government Day
January 21 was Government Day for the Leadership Pierce Class. Participants spent the day learning how our local government is formed and how it operates. The class participants got a good overview of the forms of local government - who does what, where and how they get their authority, the budgeting process, chain of command, department head/functions/locations/contact information and duties/responsibilities - the whole works! 

We owe a big "thank you" to Paul Christian, Amy Hitt, and all the folks at the County offices for hosting this monumental event. We appreciate the Pierce County Commission, the Cities of Blackshear and Patterson, Sheriff Ramsey Bennett, Blackshear Police Chief Chris Wright, and the dedicated department heads for spending the morning educating our leaders. Collaboration is the key to our community's success.
