Let’s Do Lunch! Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at Sombrero’s in Stanardsville. Everyone needs lunch, right? We have some great restaurants in the area, many of whom are not able to attend the networking breakfast, so we are starting a new, easy, delicious way for networking. We are encouraging everyone to head to Sombrero’s at noon on Tuesday, December 5 to enjoy lunch with other Chamber members and order off the menu. No cost, but we will collect RSVP’s to give Bernardo and Lucrecia a heads up on how many people will be stopping by! http://www.greenecoc.org/pay-as-you-go-event-registration/
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/

Networking Breakfast at Hills Grille
3858 Dundee Rd. Stanardsville, Virginia 22973
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.
