City of Chester &             Chester County host   Chamber Business After Hours
More than 50 Chamber members were treated to a very fun Friday afternoon thanks to Chamber partners the City of Chester and Chester County. Thanks to ALL who came together to preview the Smithsonian exhibit at this special "Business After Hours." There was wonderful food and an excellent guest speaker, Dr. Melissa Walker from Converse College, who talked about SC labor history. The traveling exhibit runs now through August 6th and is accompanied by additional local programs. Check out our website for more information: 
We need a few more Ambassadors! Ambassadors are Chamber members who believe in our mission, are willing to help us plan and pull-off events, recruit and thank members. For more information about volunteering (we meet for lunch on Thursdays once per month), email Brooke Clinton at chestercountychamber@gmail.com. It's a fun group and a wonderful way to make new business contacts.
