The Quality of Life Committee of the Chamber of Commerce serving Lexington, Buena Vista and Rockbridge County is preparing for the 16th Annual People’s Choice Awards to be presented on Wednesday, November 5th. We are soliciting the community’s help with this process. The past few years, the committee has asked for help from the community and was pleased by the response of qualified nominees that were submitted. A large percentage of last year’s ballot was derived from nominees submitted by the community.
Part three of the “Business Smarts Lexington” seminar series sponsored by the Shenandoah Valley Small Business Development Center, Main Street Lexington and the Chamber will be held Friday, July 18th in the Cornerstone Bank Boardroom from 8:15 am—9:45 am. This session is titled “Getting the Most Value from Your Accountant”.
Can you believe that this fall will be our 20th anniversary of what started out as the Rockbridge Food and Wine Festival? We have had many changes and variations over the years but the event is still here. The date is September 6th at the Virginia Horse Center. The Pop Rivets are joining us after a couple of years’ absence and we will open the day with an up and coming local band, The New Generation (fronted by Jeremiah Ruley).
