BUSINESS BUILDERS BREAKFAST
Burnsville Town Center
We invite all area business owners to meet with us on Tuesday, January 21st at 7:30 am at the Burnsville Town Center. Mayland Community College, Burnsville-Yancey Chamber of Commerce, Yancey County EDC, the Town of Burnsville, and the Main Street Merchants are happy once again to present the monthly Business Builders Breakfast in an effort to help meet the needs of the local business community. Come join us and help plan our year of programs and educational topics.
It's January -- the heart of winter -- but my thoughts are on spring. Last year's Chasing Spring weekend was a hit; this year we've reserved two weekends at the cozy and charming Celo Inn. April 24-26 (2 days & 2 nights) coincides with the peak of the great Appalachian spring wildflower bloom. May 22-25 (3 days & 3 nights) is the heart of blue ghost firefly season. We'll follow migrating warblers through the matrix of plant communities that make the Blue Ridge special. We'll chase this magical season past waterfalls, through the finest Appalachian cove forests, and to WNC's own cloud forest. Find details here, and call or email for registration information.
