GRAVETTE -- Next week is Chamber of Commerce Week in Arkansas and the Arkansas State Chamber has announced that it's almost time to celebrate! It is busy getting ready for the annual observance of the positive impact that local chambers of commerce have on their local community and their members.
The dates for this year's observance are Oct. 18-22; and Wednesday, Oct. 20, has been chosen as Support Your Local Chamber Day.
The regular monthly meeting of the Greater Gravette Chamber of Commerce is held on the third Wednesday, so it will be held on Support Your Local Chamber Day, Oct. 20, at 12:30 p.m. at the Billy V. Hall Senior Activity Center. President Steve Harari has announced that a Chamber president's panel discussion will be a feature of the meeting and Chamber of Commerce presidents from Siloam Springs, Gentry, Decatur and Gravette will all be present and be speaking. The public is invited to this event.
The local chamber is also planning a Chamber of Commerce open house from 4 to 6 p.m. that evening at the new Chamber office at 109 Main Street S.E. (the old Gravette Gym).
Nicole Jowers, local Chamber secretary, invites everyone in the community to stop by, see the new office and join Chamber officers and members in celebrating the role the Gravette Chamber plays in the local communities. She is also asking area business owners who would like to give input to submit a review/testimonial of the positive impact the Greater Gravette Chamber of Commerce has had on their business.
