Even though Thursday is Halloween, be sure to join us that morning for coffee club at the Hearing and Speech Foundation
(1652 E. Broadway, Maryville) before going trick or treating. So, come dressed in your costume and show it off. (I will be in costume so beware.)
Also, we are excited that in a little more than one week, the Business Excellence Awards
will be held at the Clayton Center for the Arts. There are only a limited number of tickets remaining. (And I'm talking very few.) You don't want to miss out on this event with our special guest from Washington, D.C. Trust me, you'll want to be there and tell your friends what they missed the next day.
That being said, tickets
are $30 for Chamber VIP members, $40 for Chamber members and $60 for the public. They are available at the Chamber office located at 201 S. Washington St. in Maryville, and by phone at 865.983.2241.

You will receive on ticket (per Chamber member) and have the ability to shop for holiday decor before anyone else. RSVP to Jessica Boyd
with your name, name of your business and list yourself as a Blount County Chamber member.

This week in 1969 "I Can't Get Next to You" by The Temptations topped the Billboard Singles chart. The single was the second of The Temptations' four number-one hits on the United States pop charts, and was also one of the best-selling singles the group released.
