Vicksburg-Warren County Chamber of Commerce   ~   Chamber Chat

October 2016
Membership is Key!

Dear Members,

It's been a wonderful two years serving as your Director of the Chamber of Commerce.  Each day I learn more and more about the wonderful people in our community, those who love our community and have chosen to live and do business in Vicksburg and Warren County!

I empower you to continue to help our Chamber recruit more businesses to become members.  We need to be unified as a business community to help promote each other, our city, and our county to enlist more people to live and work here! We take seriously our mission "to improve the quality of life"! 

We invite you to the October 19th Chamber Luncheon at Riverwalk Casino featuring guest speaker, Billy Lieberman of Billy's Original Foods.  A Vicksburg resident and Chamber Member, Billy will show us the power of his entrepreneurial journey from small business owner of Billy's Italian Restaurant to manufacturing and distributing owner of a Mississippi handcrafted Italian product, Billy's Original Foods. A business like Billy's shows the power of what community and networking can mean to the future "quality of life" for Vicksburg and Warren County.  Will you join us?

Jane Flowers,
Vicksburg-Warren County Chamber of Commerce
