The Weekly Wrap Up

August 27, 2021

Your MEMBER ONLY email on all things the Chamber worked on this week

and what you need to know to get the most out of your membership.

Thank you for being a member.


We had a wonderful Brewing Up Business Thursday night at the Historic Travelers Rest. We heard about their inclusion and diversity efforts, from BUB sponsor Tolbert Events on their work, Big Brothers Big Sisters program, the Pride Festival, and much more. You can watch the entire program here and I hope you will join us for our next one.


Join us Monday morning when Lauren brings you Benefit Connect. You will hear about all the benefits you get with Chamber Membership and how to maximize that membership. Speaking of membership, thank you to ALL the members that have renewed and paid, it is wonderful to see you all value the work of the chamber with your hard-earned dollars. If you are not a current member we would love to have you join us. 


From the flash floods in Humphreys County to the situation in Afghanistan, we pause to remember the lives lost and how fragile life isPlease cherish every moment you have and be kind. I lost my grandmother this week after a long struggle with a debilitating disease. She is at peace now but writing her obituary today I was struck by how quickly time goes and how you can impact people. I would not be who I am today without her and I think her for telling me to “go be yourself and live life to the fullest.” I hope you take her advice too. Stay safe and talk soon.
