Exec. Dir., HNG Chamber of Commerce

Happy springtime to all Breeze readers! Chamber members have received a brief recap of Chamber activities for 2016 and we began setting goals for 2017 back in December.

We look forward to another great year of unification, new businesses, advancing initiatives, Chamber gatherings and events and adding many new faces to our wonderful community.

As always, we are deeply grateful to our membership for their continued support. Without our dedicated members, we would not be able to function.

The Chamber of Hickory Nut Gorge is somewhat unique in that we actually have a family (supporter) membership in addition to our standard business membership. Over one hundred of your neighbors are registered members and receive email updates from our office and are invited to all events. You too can join us in growing the health of our Community for just $50 per year.

We would love to have YOU join us. Take a few minutes and log onto and plunge yourself into engaging with some of the most positive, “can do” people you have ever met. We have fun working for community betterment.

Our office is located in the Carolina Trust Bank building across from the Beach in LL.
