Chamber members treated to spring ‘garden party’ mixer at Out of Eden

Members of the Blount County Chamber of Commerce got a spring treat at their quarterly mixer at Out of Eden Garden Center. Even when mid-April’s weather refused to be warm, the atmosphere at the Chamber Mixer was blooming and bright.

Staff and personnel at Out of Eden created a garden party atmosphere for the chamber members and, judging from the crowd, many business owners and community leaders were ready to get out of the office and shake off the winter.

The Blount County Chamber of Commerce hosts monthly coffees in the morning and quarterly mixers in the afternoon to give members a chance to network, visit other businesses and introduce themselves to others in the business community. The Afternoon Mixers are held at the sponsor’s location, or at the Chamber. The mixers are from 4 to 5:30 on a Thursday. Mixers are held in January, April, July and October.
