February 2018
From the Director
It may have seemed like things were quiet at the Chamber over the past month or so. We have been very quietly finishing up our new website, setting up headshot days, planning to bring back the Business Expo, lining up bands for our Summer Concert Series, starting to plan the Road Race and, oh yeah, planning the Summerfest and Fireworks. Everything seems to be coming together nicely.

Look for lots of good things coming up.

Chamber Website

Enough talk already. See some results. The new website is going live as this newsletter is being sent.


The exciting part is that our members will be able to modify and update their listing by claiming it and creating an account. That will also enable you to add items to the Events section. We will be scheduling some info sessions to help people learn what they can do.

Now for the technical jargon: the Domain Name Servers may take up to 48 hours to update the links to the new website. If the old website comes up, step one is to clear the Cache in your Browser. Depending on what browser you are using, it will be under settings or options. If the old website still comes up, you may have to wait for the name servers at your particular ISP to update.

The Shack is Back!
Find RadioShack at Enterprise Computer in Clinton
Since 1997, Chamber member Enterprise Computer has been at the forefront of technology, providing a variety of IT services for homes, businesses, municipalities and schools. Today, its list of services includes computer repairs and sales, data recovery, point-of-sale solutions, networking, and web services. Its on-site, in-store and mobile support options are a testament to the company's ability to adapt to the changing needs of its customers. In a continued effort to meet those needs, Enterprise is proud to announce its partnership with RadioShack, the familiar and popular electronics retailer.

“We're excited about the addition of RadioShack to our offerings,” says Enterprise owner Richard Holton. “It means a wider selection of technology will be available again for local consumers, businesses, technicians and IT staff.”

The existing Enterprise Computer storefront, located at 83 W. Main Street in Clinton, is undergoing a redesign to have the look and feel of a modern RadioShack, while maintaining the customer service and local approach appreciated by its customers. A Grand Opening is planned for the spring of 2018!
