Debra and Andy are tough acts to follow, but I'll try...

We'd LOVE to see you on Tuesday night for Beers With Your Peers at Palm City Brewing! This is a low pressure, fun, opportunity to meet us in a casual atmosphere - perfect for people considering joining who have not yet taken the plunge into our Chamber pool. And, if you're already a member, come by to say hello and make some connections with your fellow members!

Lastly, we start our Virtual 5K on Wednesday, May 5, presented by Lee Health. This is the ultimate event for those who don't usually partake in such activities - like myself (I always joke that if you see me running, you better run too, because something's coming!) Walk or run 5K over 5 days. Tracking your 5K is on the honor system, and you get a super-cool t-shirt with our 5K logo on it, designed by Matt Connar at Boost Creative. $25 for adults, $15 for ages 12-18, free for kids under 12.  We've also got a special offer - $35 for your 5K registration and ticket to Beers With Your Peers.
