• Hello Newberry

Leadership Newberry County kicked off

Leadership Newberry County kicked off last week, and if that day was any indication of what the next nine months hold for this class, Newberry County is in great hands! We got to know ourselves and each other better, then worked on teambuilding. The next class topic is Health and Human Services where we will learn about health care and the non-profit sector. As excited as I was about Newberry County being a part of the Ag+Art Tour this past summer, and being a part of EclipseFest for the once in a lifetime occurrence in August, this program will also rank high in my book of Chamber accomplishments.

A Newberry County Job Fair will be held Thursday, Nov. 9 at Piedmont Technical College from 1 until 4 p.m. If you are a business looking to hire, contact us and we will send you a link to register. If you are seeking a job or just interested in what types of jobs are available, be sure to mark your calendar to drop in.

We are taking reservations for the November 14 breakfast sponsored by Self Medical Group. Join us from 7:30-9 a.m. and hear from Leila Ganjehei, M.D., Cardiology, Advanced Cardiology Associates; and Michael Kilburn, M.D., Neurosurgery Advanced Spine and Neurosurgical Associates. Cost is $10 per person for this event.

Mark your calendar for Nov. 16 when Visibility Software will host a Ribbon Cutting from 5:30-7 p.m. at their newly renovated space at 1215 Friend Street in downtown Newberry. Sean and Christy Pomeroy have invested heavily in Newberry and have a neat story to tell about why they chose this community in which to settle.
