The Greene County Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting and Holiday Social is on Wednesday, December 13, from 6-8 p.m. The social is complimentary for Chamber members and one guest (additional tickets can be purchased if you would like to invite others from your company). With the help of our amazing members, we are excited to announce that the social will be hosted by the Barn at Edgewood, 777 Beazley Road Stanardsville, Virginia 22973. It is a spectacular wedding & event venue on Edgewood Farm in a newly constructed barn! For the past three generations, the Winslow family has enjoyed the amazing views and peace that the farm has given them. No holiday social would be complete without incredible food, so our “foodie” members: About You Catering, Blue Ridge Café, Lafayette Inn, Papa John’s Pizza and Sombrero’s are going to provide appetizers for everyone with a twist of a little friendly competition where each of you will vote for your favorite light appetizer, heavy appetizer and sweet. It might not be Iron Chef, but our “Greene Chefs” will make us all proud (and very full!). Finally, Kilaurwen Winery will be providing a glass of wine to toast your old and new friends. They will also have bottles of wine for sale for your last-minute gift giving/host gifts! We expect a terrific attendance, so grab your business cards and join us for networking and holiday cheer. click here to register today! http://www.greenecoc.org/special-event-registration/

Roundtable Brainstorming-2018 Resolutions for Your Business!
Small businesses do not have the advantage of board of directors or even upper management to exchange ideas with on a regular basis so we invite all businesses to come and bounce ideas off of other attendees. You may have questions on how to effectively do something that someone has already been through, you may have a solution to save someone else valuable resources.

First Ever Stanardsville Walk-About Social!
United Bank is generously sponsoring a social in Stanardsville for Greene Chamber Members (please note this is a members only event). This will not be an ordinary social however! Registrants will check in at United Bank for their nametags and then explore all that Stanardsville has to offer from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. by visiting participating merchants, as well as the Historical Society and the Blue Ridge Heritage Memorial. Each stop will have an appetizer AND you will pick a playing card at each stop to accumulate cards to win door prizes. Attendees will then meet at 7pm at the Lafayette Inn to enjoy a glass of wine or beer, network, and see who has the winning hand of cards for our “poker walk” for door prizes donated by Greene Businesses. This is a free event for Greene Chamber Members, but please RSVP for planning purposes.
