More than 20 Yadkin County businesses and organizations will be represented at this year’s Showcase Yadkin Business Expo next Thursday, Sept. 16. The public is invited to the free event, where they can earn an entry in a drawing for door prizes by visiting each booth at the Expo.
“The Expo is a great way for the community to come out and learn about the remarkable products and services that are offered by our Chamber members,” said Jamie Johnston of the Yadkin County Chamber of Commerce. “This is also a wonderful opportunity for networking between Chamber members and the community.”
This is the second year of the now annual event. Organizers are hoping for fair weather after ice and rain dampened the first edition.
“We have such an incredible list of vendors participating in the Expo this year, from nonprofit to retail to health care to financial institutions,” Johnston said. “I would say that the Yadkin County popcorn producing farm — Shallowford Popcorn Farm — is one of our unusual exhibitors, as most folks don’t know that Yadkin County has a popcorn producing farm with a gift shop.”
The Expo is sponsored by the Chamber, Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital, Skyline National Bank, Yadkin Nursing Care, Workforce Unlimited, Surry Community College, The Yadkin Ripple/The Tribune, Surry-Yadkin EMC, Unifi, Yadtel, Russell Cellular and Yadkin Vision Center.
