2018 National Small Business Week Recap
What a great time we had celebrating National Small Business Week with you! We had the opportunity to drop in and visit some of you during a trolley tour, had fun promoting and highlighting a few of our members and even had some fun participation on social media.
If you missed it, here are a few of the highlights:
Celebrating Small Business at LINKS
What better place to kick-off the Third Annual Trolley Tour than at LINKS? Here Lisa Hermes, president, McKinney Chamber of Commerce spoke about the impact of small business on our city and it's economy. Then we enjoyed a send-off by the 100+ businesses that attend this networking event each week.
We hit the roads on a whirlwind tour around McKinney to thank some of our longtime small business members. Check out our Facebook page or Facebook Live Videos to see all the fun unfold brought to you by the social media dynamic-duo, Fred & Elizabeth Mahusay of Fredshots Photography.
