To the Editor:

It has truly been an exciting week at the Franklin-Southampton Area Chamber of Commerce! On Tuesday, seven dynamic Chamber volunteers visited with businesses to talk about the value of Chamber membership. This volunteer group was led by 2013 Chamber President, Bobby Cutchins, owner of Bobby’s Tire & Auto Care and Blake Blythe, owner of Blake Ford and the Chamber’s Vice President of Membership. Other team members included: Robbie Purvis, retired BFCU; Meghan Councill, Davenport & Co.; Amanda Jarratt, Franklin Southampton Economic Development; Mary Lilley, Coldwell Banker Professional Realtors; Clyde Parker, retired Franklin Equipment Company.

At the end of the day the Chamber was stronger by 21 new members! As we connect them to new opportunities and business growth through programs and events, these members will bring new ideas and energy to assist in moving the community forward. We encourage everyone to visit Chamber businesses and thank them for their commitment to your community.

We welcome new members: Ace Hardware, Air Mechanix, Barnes Painting, Beamon & Johnson Auto Parts, Cars & Credit, Cornwell Electric & HVAC, Crowder & White Contracting, Dail’s Home Center, Drake Tire Company, Enviva, Edwards Hardware, Gatten Eye Care, Gracie’s Garden, Grayson & Emma’s Garden Spot, Repair Tech, Simply Divine at Parkers, Southampton Cutting Industry, Inc., Southampton Towing & Recovery, ST Tissue, LLC, Texas Nails & Spa and Title Max.
