Business of the Month
Congratulations to Ilan Levy and Exodus Moving & Storage for being nominated our Business of the Month. They are a family owned business that believes in giving back. They don't just look for clients, they look for ways to give back to their community. They are currently storing the chamber's stage, dance floor and many various event items. It is so nice to load everything up in one truck after an event and have them drive away. Then they deliver it again when we need it. They've been known to deliver peaches and apples for other non-profit events. Thank you, Exodus Moving & Storage, for all that you do for our community. Website
