Chamber and MSG help small businesses


GREENVILLE — The Darke County Chamber of Commerce and Main Street Greenville Association are pleased to announce a new, joint program called Small Business Sessions. These virtual meetings will be held on the second Wednesday of each month from 11 a.m. to noon.

“We wanted to provide opportunities for growth for our small business members. Anyone can participate in these virtual workshops (or view them later) for no cost,” said Chamber President Peggy Emerson. “We are facing some tough economic times and we want to do all we can to support our small businesses in Darke County.”

They can participate remotely or watch them later if necessary.”
