Community should attend after hours event

Together we stand. It’s a simple concept, and one that the members of the Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce’s Unification Committee want to promote.

That’s why they’re sponsoring a Business After Hours event from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Natchez Association for the Preservation of Afro-American History’s museum.

The chamber, with its mission to serve and promote the interests of businesses in the Adams County community, realized a long time ago that no matter how racially diverse this community may be, we are ultimately an economic community.

Moreover, we are ultimately people who share the same goals of personal and business growth. And promoting communication, we can build that desperately needed unity in our community.

The idea of hosting a Business After Hours at the NAPAC museum isn’t an overt show of unity. It is, instead, an opportunity to take advantage of an immensely popular and effective networking event that draws hundreds of business and civic leaders as part of an ongoing unification campaign.

By attending this Business After Hours, the business and civic leaders can send an important message to the community – the message that they realize the shared goals and interests and that they want to build on the common ground for a successful future.

We expect the after hours will be well attended, as it should be. We encourage each of you to take the time to attend the after hours, if only for a few minutes. It’s an investment in our community.
