Thank you for participating in Small Business Saturday on Nov. 25th! Area shoppers had a blast looking for the perfect holiday gifts and the large turnout made the event a resounding success for local businesses.

This month we heard from our Membership Director Lauren Tanner as she updated attendees on the latest news from the Obion County Chamber of Commerce and Joint Economic Development Council! Afterwards, she opened the floor for discussion about what other initiatives the Chamber can be taking to improve on its service for our members and for Obion County.
