Hello from the desk of the Alliance. Kari, here! We have a lot of Chamber related activity to share with you but I will try to keep this as short as I can. This morning we had a ribbon cutting at Five Below in Ashland Town Center. If you missed it, you can watch the LIVE video on our Facebook page or tune into WSAZ or WCHS this evening. We were grateful to have Ashland City Commissioners Gute & Blanton there to celebrate yet another business opening.

Susan and I had a successful week dropping in to see several of you with donuts from Dave’s Bakery! We are looking forward to continuing that tradition many weeks to come. We’ve also had several opportunities to sit down with some of you and discuss ways to strengthen your business’ brand. If this is something you’re interested in, give us a call or respond to this email! We would love to hear from you.

We are starting a new Lunch & Learn series called “Things you Ought to Know.” Our first virtual session will be on February 18th from 12:30- 1PM with Mr. John Spears, CPA, CGMA from Kelley Galloway Smith Goolsby, PSC. He will be discussing Things You Ought to Know about taxes in 2021. If you’d like to join us virtually, you can simply respond to this email to RSVP.

Be on the lookout for multiple ribbon cuttings. We will be sharing those as their dates and details are finalized. You will be able to stream them all LIVE on our Facebook page.

Hopefully you noticed our Shop Members newsletter’s debut on Wednesday! If you’d like to be included in next week’s edition, please send in your flyer by Tuesday at noon.

Lastly, LIKE & FOLLOW us on Facebook and Instagram (@ashlandalliance) to stay up to date on all of our community’s good news.
