Tomorrow is the November Lunch and Learn on “Social Media and Your Business,” to be held at the YoungLife location inside of the Port Charlotte Town Center mall (the former Sears end). There will be a panel discussion on what and what not to do regarding social media. Lunch is just $10, and you can sign up by calling the Port Charlotte office or visiting the Chamber store.
Networking at Noon is Nov. 13 at Cody’s Original Roadhouse in the mall. You will be able to select from eight yummy selections, so make sure you call our office at 627-2222 or visit the Chamber store.
Please join us for a Chambers night mixer with the Atlanta Braves Nov. 18 from 5 to 7 p.m. with members of the North Port, Englewood, and Charlotte County chambers. They will be offering $2 drafts, $4 wines and some complimentary appetizers at our Landshark Landing area of the ballpark. Please bring a canned good(s) for Salvation Army.
The Third Wednesday Coffee is Nov. 20 and will feature the always-fun Holiday Celebration where members decorate a table showcasing their products and services in a holiday theme. There will be “bragging rights” for the most creative, unusual and attractive table top displays.
We won’t have a Nov. Business Card Exchange because there’s a multi-Chamber event on Dec. 5 at MonarchDIRECT.
Our annual Coffee Connections will be Dec. 6 from 8 to 9 a.m. at the Freeman House. Stop by on your way to work for some good mixing and mingling.
Our Hometown Community Christmas Tree Lighting will be from 4 to 7 p.m., Dec. 13. at the County Administration Building. There will be food trucks, craft vendors, caroling and more. Interested vendors should call our Port Charlotte Office to register. Sponsorships are also available (with plenty of recognition for your business). The Official Tree Lighting will take place at dusk.
The 41st annual Charlotte County Christmas Parade is the next day, Dec. 14. We will step off at noon from the Charlotte Performing Arts Center, head north on Taylor and disband at the Event Center. Information about this family-fun-day is on our website and in both offices.
