Dahlonega-Lumpkin County Chamber of Commerce certainly knows how to welcome new members. Lamar Photography (Lamar's photo business) was warmly welcomed at the September Chamber's After Hours event hosted by UpStairs DownStairs Tuesday evening.
Upstairs DownStairs (and the 7 different stores in that building) threw a great party....delicious food - pizza, meatballs, barbecue brisket, cheese, Georgia wines. This was a great opportunity to network. We met some interesting entrepreneurs, many like us who had moved from Atlanta to Lumpkin.
One thing we realized at the get-to-gether is that there's a lot going on in Dahlonega and Lumpkin....this is not exactly a lazy, sleeply little town....and the Chamber is helping drive business and tourism.
Oh, and Lamar got to give a little 'Who I Am' speech before the crowd and he received a plaque to hang in his office and a "Member of the Chamber" decal. Well, since Lamar Photography operates out of a home office, there's no door for the decal. Lamar solved that problem...stuck the decal on the back window of his truck!
