The Pontiac Chamber and Mother Nature were in-tune for this year’s Golf Outing. After having to cancel our initial date, the back-up date couldn’t have been any more beautiful. The weather, the beauty of the Wolf Creek Course and all the smiling faces we haven’t see since 2021, made it a perfect day.

We hosted our first information workshop and this one covered Social Media and how to add it to your marketing plan. Students from PTHS and Career and Community Services Coordinator, Betsy Westergreen explained to the group the different social media platforms and what they are used for. Cat then lead a round table discussion on how to apply these platforms to marketing their businesses. So, many experiences and ideas were shared and we look forward to setting the date on a follow-up.
What a fabulous turnout we had at Fitness Premier for our Business After Hours. It was fun seeing everyone and getting the grand tour of this modern facility. Rick, Cheri and the crew were gracious hosts and were so accommodating.
