What happening at the Chamber?
Leadership Series Breakfasts
The Caswell County Chamber of Commerce is presenting the Connecting Caswell Leadership Series of complimentary breakfast meetings wherein the community is invited to attend and learn more about the positive things happening around the county. Chamber members have agreed to join in making this happen by sharing how their organizations or companies are making a difference in the area providing a living for their families in Caswell while working to maintain the beautiful rural nature of our county.
Because the community shared they wanted farms to thrive and for agriculture based businesses be the foundation of our economic growth, (not recruiting manufacturing plants or industry that brings heavy traffic and changes to our landscape), the efforts of the Chamber are focused on spotlighting how others might support the existing folks here, see the possibility for their own entrepreneurial ideas and do their own great things.
On Tues Feb 18, Dr. Pamela Senegal, President, PCC, will be speaking at our inaugural Connecting Caswell event. She will be sharing how PCC is working within the community’s wishes by building the new C.E.A.D center and by creating paths for BYHS graduates to finish with an associate degree in Ag Business. To attend this complimentary breakfast meeting at the Caswell Campus of PCC, Feb 18 from 8am-9:30am, call the Chamber to RSVP at 336.694.6106.
The series will continue throughout the year. Tuesday, April 21, Dr. Sandra Carter, Superintendent Caswell County Schools, will be sharing how the new high school and other innovative programs are making a positive change here. Confirmed for the June meeting is the noted Caswell Writer, Blogger and You Tuber, Meredith Bernard, https://www.thisfarmwife.com/. You may have seen here on WFMY2 recently.
Clint Hilbert, veteran, and owner of Distinguish Pistol Shooting Range, chose Caswell to be the place to locate/retire (after living in many other places) and build a successful business https://distinguishedpistol.com/ . The facility even has gunsmithing incubators on his property for young people looking to grow in this trade. Please consider joining us in these exciting opportunities to learn more about your neighbors and see examples of just how innovative our county is.
