Smiling new faces at the Chamber! We are SO excited to welcome two college interns for the summer--Hannah Knight and Eaven Austin from the J. Marion Sims Foundation, along with Great Falls High School English teacher Wendy Branham who is job shadowing through a program with the Department of Commerce. These talented folks are working on a unique project to interview our business owners to learn more about career opportunities here in Chester County. These videos will then be shared with high school students to help them match their own interest/skills with LOCAL careers. We want to keep our talented young people, like Hannah and Eaven, living & working HERE. Thanks to the
J. Marion Sims Foundation & the Lancaster County Chamber for partnering with us to bring Hannah and Eaven on board!

Angela or call 581-4142.
For example, a restaurant might want to give away a "free drink with the purchase of a meal." The idea is to promote our local eateries and shops with the hope of keeping tourists in town to spend money!
