The Greater Blythewood
Chamber of Commerce
  
Your New Chamber Office
Opens this Month!

On April 18th,
5:30 to 7:00 pm
we will be hosting our monthly networking event

with the grand opening
and ribbon-cutting of our new office and co-work space
at 428-4 McNulty St.

Please register in advance at blythewoodchamber.com



The worldwide popularity of co-working is spreading to Blythewood.

Independent professionals are discovering that their home office comes with a lot of distractions: dogs barking, family interruptions, etc.

 Many of these workers are in need of desk space with wi-fi, printer, conference room, coffee, etc. but not interested in finding and leasing their own office space. 

With the exploding population
of the Blythewood area and the resulting increase in traffic congestion on I-77,
the Greater Blythewood Chamber of Commerce has made the decision to open the town's first co-work space in their new office
at 428-4 McNulty St. in Town Center.
Come by and see it for yourself!

      Speak of Giving...

A wonderful group of volunteers
with JustServe 
spent Saturday afternoon with the new residents of The Point.

Many wonderful comments were heard of the help given to our new neighbors...plus one gentleman was given a ride and many stories (I'm sure) by Mayor Mike Ross, who is no stranger to helping others. 
Thank you to this wonderful group of volunteers who made a great impression on our new neighbors.









You get two extra days to file your taxes!
