Your Chamber, along with the Newberry Small Business Development Center, the City of Newberry, and TeamSocial presented a free, three-part workshop, ‘Social Media for Small Business’ to the community. Utilizing the facilities of the Newberry Firehouse Conference Center and the Newberry Campus of Piedmont Technical College, this workshop introduced over 60 small business owners to new concepts in social media.
On Saturday, May 31 people near and far visited Newberry for the Spring Garden and Art Tour. They visited four private gardens, the Japanese Wells Garden, and Carter & Holmes Orchids and experienced the talents of local artists. Some downtown Newberry restaurants offered 10 percent discounts to ticket holders and many great door prizes were donated by local garden centers and nurseries. We thank everyone who supported and helped make this event possible.
