Chamber Annual Banquet
Held at the end of January, this is the annual celebration of the accomplishments of the previous year and the kickoff to the coming year. It is the perfect time to fellowship with community businessmen/women, community leaders, and Chamber board members in order to find out about the priorities for the Chamber in the coming year. The STAR candidates from Early County High School and Southwest Georgia Academy are recognized at the banquet.
Administrative Professionals Luncheon
A Blakely tradition for many years, the Administrative Professionals Luncheon is held on the fourth Wednesday of April every year. It is an event held in honor of all of the hard working administrative professionals that keep our offices and community moving forward.
Ribbon cuttings are one of our favorite activities at the Chamber! We love to welcome new businesses of all shapes and sizes.
Business After Hours
Starting back up in January 2015, Business After Hours allows one business per month to showcase their products and services on-site by staying open after normal business hours. These events are great opportunities to meet fellow business owners and network with the community as a whole.
Trick or Treating on the Square
Each year around Halloween, local businesses partner with the Chamber to provide trick or treating on court square for our preschoolers and pre-kindergarten children.
Christmas on the Square & Moonlight Madness
The first Friday in December all of our businesses and restaurants on the square stay open late for a shopping extravaganza just in time for the holiday season. The following day is marked by the annual Christmas on the Square Festival. Vendors from all over the southeast participate in the festival, which is highlighted by live entertainment, a 5K race and fun run, an antique car show, and a parade.
