Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

The Charles County Cham­ber of Com­merce is grate­ful to the many peo­ple, busi­nesses and or­ga­ni­za­tions that came to­gether to present the com­mu­nity with a won­der­ful and en­light­en­ing Women’s Fair on Satur­day, March 18. We thank event chair Christie Bur­nett of Spring Dell’s Hooks & Hang­ers for the count­less hours she and her team devoted to this spe­cial event. Ad­di­tion­ally, we thank our pro­gram spon­sors: the Col­lege of South­ern Mary­land who hosted the fair; the Univer­sity of Mary­land Charles Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter for cre­at­ing an out­stand­ing Health & Well­ness Cen­ter dur­ing the event; and the South­ern Mary­land News­pa­pers/Mary­land In­de­pen­dent for pro­vid­ing ad­ver­tis­ing and pro­gram guides. Other spon­sors in­cluded: Ar­row Amer­i­can Pest & Ter­mite Con­trol; Mid-At­lantic Skin Surgery In­sti­tute; SLS Min­istries; SMECO; and Zonta.

The hall­ways of CSM were filled with many busi­nesses and or­ga­ni­za­tions serv­ing as ex­hibitors. For a com­plete list­ing of th­ese fine busi­nesses, please visit the cham­ber’s web­site at www.charle­scoun­ty­cham­ber.org and click on the link. You’ll see the en­tire pro­gram to in­clude the ex­hibitors. We would also be glad to pro­vide you with de­tailed in­for­ma­tion on the speak­ers who shared their ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence in the out­stand­ing break­out ses­sions. You may also phone the cham­ber of­fice (301-932-6500) and the in­for­ma­tion will be pro­vided for you.

Of course no event of this na­ture is 100 per­cent suc­cess­ful with­out a phe­nom­e­nal key­note speaker. Computer Sys­tems En­gi­neer LaTisha Durham was just that. The theme for the Women’s Fair was “In­spire, Mo­ti­vate and Ed­u­cate” and LaTisha ac­com­plished all three.

Through­out the day we were pleased that so many at­ten­dees had pos­i­tive com­ments to share and felt that their time had been very well spent. Our thanks to all of you for join­ing us! And, our very spe­cial thanks to all of those whose ded­i­ca­tion and hard work made the event pos­si­ble.
