It was a wonderful evening at the Laurens County Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours held in conjunction with the Confident Smiles of Laurens Open House and charity event! On July 19, Dr. Cost and his staff welcomed visitors, gave tours of the office, and helped to raise money and collect donations for the Laurens County Safe Home. Pelican’s Snoballs was on site to provide each guest with one of their delicious snoballs! Confident Smiles of Laurens is located at 318 West Farley Avenue and can be reached by calling 864-766-4290.
Our Little Shop, the Safe Home of Laurens County Thrift Store, celebrated their remodeling and fresh look today with a Ribbon Cutting celebration! Full of smiling faces, and plenty of home décor, clothing, furniture and more, Our Little Shop is the perfect place to find anything you need. All of the proceeds benefit the Laurens County Safe Home, and donations are always welcome. Stop by 1500 Western Square Plaza in Laurens to see all of the changes from the remodel!
On July 17th, we had the pleasure of hosting one of our Business Empowerment Series Workshops. Local Law Enforcement worked together to present a workshop on business and personal safety. Attendees received a resource listing, a great networking opportunity, Chick-fil-a dinner, and a chance to win some cool raffle prizes (donated by Main Street Clinton, Main Street Laurens, and Chick-Fil-A of Laurens County). Thank you for all you do, City of Clinton Public Safety, City of Laurens Police Department, and Laurens County Sheriff’s Office!
We give a big thank you Brenda Connell with TK PR for sharing her knowledge on Public Relations and helping our small business leaders to look beyond just Facebook when forming their PR Strategy! This Small Business Empowerment Series was a collaborative effort between the Chamber and the Greenwood Area SC Small Business Development Center. Keep an eye out for information on the next workshop!
