Fireflies join Chamber

NEWBERRY — The Columbia Fireflies are the newest members of the Newberry County Chamber of Commerce. After joining, the Chamber was invited to get a behind-the-scenes tour of Spirit Communications Park.

Executive Director Michelle Long, Administrator Liz MacDonald, Mike Meadow, Denny Koenders and Andrew Wigger attended the tour and were able to get information on suites, how to host an event and how to purchase reserved seating. There was also a behind the scenes tour of the field, dugout, locker room and Tim Tebow’s locker.

“The Columbia Fireflies recently joined the Chamber, and it was a pleasure to visit their stadium for a behind-the-scenes tour, sample their concession offerings, and learn about the possibilities for group outings,” Long said.
