Blue Bows for Business is to help our community to get back to business and reopen with precautions and rebound our local economy. It's not business as normal! So we need to support each other in a different way. The blue bows for business is one of our ways to help support the businesses of Lamar County. We hope to flood our county with a wave of blue bows. Tie a blue bow on your business door, so we know that you're Open for Business! The chamber will supply the blue bows while supplies last. The bows are free for chamber members and $5 for non-chamber members. Call the chamber to request your blue bow for business 770-358-5884.
