What an event Primetime was last week. The food was awesome with more than 15 vendors. We had 150 businesses and nearly 400 people attend this fun event. Here's some photos
and a video
. Check them out.
Don't forget about Coffee Club
this Thursday at 7:45 a.m. hosted by Alcoa Chiropractic Center
(247 East Watt Street Alcoa). They are offering a complementary chair massage. Is there a better way to start your day than with a cup of coffee and quick massage? I think not.
So come mix and mingle with each other and continue to lead and develop our community as we want it. We will be having gatherings, socials, etc., on the last Thursday of every month.
SPEED NETWORKING IS NEXT WEEK
Believe it or not, speed networking is just what it sounds like -- quick, focused opportunities to meet those who can propel your career and business. And, YES, it does really work! We all desire to accelerate our careers and get on the fast track to success, with speed-networking, you can accelerate your networking. You can meet more quality contacts and actually have meaningful conversations in just one event than any other method!
Speed networking is FUN and EFFECTIVE. Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, young in your career or experienced -- you will enjoy meeting people in this type of format.
The Blount Partnership is a firm believer in putting people face-to-face to facilitate direct conversation. So join us Thursday, April 4 at 8 a.m. at the Chamber office. RSVP to Amy.
PUBLIC WORKSHOPS FOR MARYVILLE-TO-TOWNSEND GREENWAY PLANNING
You're invited to a workshop to help plan a new trail link in Blount County.
Maryville/Alcoa and Townsend already have some terrific trails. Wouldn't it be great to link them together?
Come on out to one of the workshops on April 10 and 11. You'll hear about the opportunities and challenges of creating a greenway trail from Maryville to Townsend. You'll get a chance to take a walk on a nearby trail and tell us what features you'd like the new greenway to have. And you'll be able to ask questions about the plan and the process.
Public workshops are from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., April 10 at the Townsend Visitors Center and April 11 at the Maryville Municipal Building. We leave for the greenway walk at 6, so don't be left behind! (And be sure to wear comfortable shoes.)
There will also be two stakeholder workshops, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and from 1:30 to 4 p.m., on April 11 at the Maryville Municipal Building. These will be a bit longer than the public workshops and are aimed at certain stakeholder groups, but the public is invited as well.
