Executive Director of the Chamber, Rose Black, said that holding the Expo at the high school gym enables the Chamber to have a great many more exhibitors. However, the number of exhibitors is limited, along with electricity, and is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Tables will be provided for exhibitors, however, skirting and drapery will not be provided and will be up to exhibitors to bring.
Individuals are asked to return the registration form along with the check for the reservation and/or Business After Hour fees to the Tyrone Chamber office as soon as possible, but no later than September 15.
According to Black, the Chamber will be saving part of the proceeds from registration to recognize an outstanding graduating senior who is pursuing a career in business. Last year’s award of $250 went to Melissa Stager.
