A Week of Saluting Industries

September 27, 2011

Last week was action packed and opportunity filled for those who participated in the Salute to Industry Week festivities.

The week started with a networking opportunity for Chamber members as AOD Federal Credit Union hosted “Business After Hours.”

During the week, Chamber members also had the opportunity to tour and learn about three local industries: Advantage Logistics, Monarch Windows & Doors, and B.R. Williams Trucking and Logistics. These industries had the opportunity to introduce those, who one might not expect to see in their facilities, to their business in a short period of time. Much was learned about these industries throughout these tours. For instance, did you know that Advantage Logistics has 3.5 miles of conveyor belt in their facility?

The Chamber’s Salute to Industry Golf Outing was help at Cider Ridge Golf Club. 130 participants played an enjoyable round of golf and had the opportunity to play or be paired with someone they might not have known before the golf tournament. Participants and sponsors had the opportunity to spend fours hours getting to network with one another. We want to thank these participants and various sponsors for making this event possible.

The week was brought to a close with the Salute to Industry Breakfast at McClellan Park Medical Mall. Those, who attended the tours on Wednesday, were quizzed on their gathered knowledge in a friendly game of “Industrial Pursuit,” and Robin Scott of the McClellan Development Authority addressed those gathered about the Fort property and its future. The breakfast served as yet another wonderful time to socialize and network.

So, as you see, this week allowed participants to see the various contributions local industries make to the Calhoun County area, and for that, we are so grateful because they truly help make Calhoun County a great place to work and live.
