Today’s networking lunch at OutBack SteakHouse was significantly different from others lunches in that a surprise announcement was made. The Chamber has started a program called the “Quarter of the Month” Business. Members themselves nominate business which satifies a set of criteria for giving back to their communities. The Chamber’s Ambassadors then collect nominations & select the business with the most votes. The first business to win the recognition was Walton EMC. Applause rang out in the resturant as Coleman Benko presented the “sign” to Cindy Haddon, the Marketing Rep for Walton. The sign will remain on display at Walton until the next winner is selected. The 2nd winner will claim the sign for the next 3 months and so on. 45 members enjoyed steak (as only Outback can do), broiled cod, tender string green beans, mashed red eye potatoes, sweet tea and desert. If you haven’t, maybe you should join the Chamber – the Oconee County Chamber that is !!! There is none other like it.
