The Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce hosted a spring breakfast event this morning at the Heritage Centre, located on Washington Street in Brownsville.
Chamber Director Greg Hudson spoke to representatives of local businesses in an attempt to convey that the Chamber is actively working to help local businesses see results.
"We're focusing on doing everything we can to see that your business stays sustainable," he said.
Hudson said feedback he's received from members of the past showed that businesses felt like there was not much benefit in being a member of the Chamber; however, he said the Chamber has taken bolder steps in becoming proactive for local industry.
"This is just one of the events we're hosting throughout the year," he said. "These are great opportunities for you to network with other businesses and we've seen results from our recent showcase."
Hudson said there were multiple products and services shared among businesses at last week's event where local business owners were not aware of what the other actually offered.
"People enjoyed that event and it's one of the many examples of how your local Chamber is working for you."
He also discussed the recent "Coffee With A Cop" event held in Lincoln where local law enforcement agencies had discussions with community members. He said that there are plans to bring the event to multiple communities throughout the county.
"I appreciate everyone coming out for this event," Hudson told the Edmonson Voice. "As I said here today, we want our local businesses to know we are here for them and working for you. We want you to see results."
The meal was catered by Creations Cafe.
