A message from your President

Hello from your Fayette County Chamber of Commerce! My name is Julie Bolender, and I am excited to be your new President. In my first week, I have made an effort to meet as many of you as possible and will continue that effort in the coming weeks.  I thank each of you for the warm welcome and all the offers of assistance I have received. It has truly been an extraordinary welcome! I am inspired by your commitment to Fayette County as we work together to make a positive impact on our communities. I am available to you at any time, and encourage you to reach out with questions, suggestions or to just say hi!  I am looking forward to a great working relationship with each of you as well as the exciting things we have planned for Fayette County and its residents.

March 2018 Business of the Month

On March 9th, the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors met to tap this month’s Business of the Month recipient. Honored was W&W Dry Cleaners and The Linen Closet, located at 131 E. Court Street. Ben Snodgrass and Christy Larrick are the second generation to own and operate this business that was started by their parents in 1963. Not only do they provide dry cleaning care, they can help you with linen, formal wear and event décor rental as well as balloons! The owners are beginning a new venture into home décor items which will be available for sale soon! They invite you to shop their new items and view the remodeling efforts of their location during the Chocolate Walk in April. Congratulations, Christy and Ben and thank you for your membership!
