YPOC - Tacky Christmas Sweater Party

The Young Professionals of Obion County had their 1st Annual tacky Christmas sweater party on December 18th. Hops & Barley donated the space and provided appetizers! Over $50 in gift cards and prizes were given away and members had a great time. We had a great turnout of first timers and look forward to our next event!

Where do you work?
I currently work part-time at the Obion County Chamber of Commerce as I have recently concluded my graduate education program.

What do you like about your job?
I love working for the Chamber because I have been able to learn so much about how a community is sustained and how businesses are recruited and retained. I also love helping put on networking events and attending ribbon cuttings and open houses. Those are such a unique experience because you get to see first hand the success of your local businesses.

Obion County Public Library. I am the Assistant Director as well as the Children's Coordinator.

What do you like about your job?
I love working with the public and getting to know the people who make up Obion County. I also enjoy the opportunity to instill a love for the library in Kids and Teens within our Community. We also have different events throughout the year that we love planning. We try to always have creative ways to engage both children and adults here at the library.
