We had a great in-person breakfast this morning (Friday August 28th) at Miracle Field Pavilion. We did a "Pass the Mic" without a microphone and it was nice to hear from so many of you. But, since we can't all be together at a Chamber Breakfast, we created a page for you to share a sentence or two - like you would at Pass the Mic during a breakfast.
We would love it if you added your comment to the list! We cleared the page at the end of August and are asking you for a new comment so the page has the latest and greatest about your business! You can click the button to submit a comment or scroll to the end and fill it out!
Hopefully this provides a little connection to our Chamber members and maybe a little fun too!
