Our First Annual Awards Gala “Mingle & Jingle” on December 9th was a “smash” of an evening! Many thanks to our emcee, Dawndy Mercer Plank from WIS-TV, Gold Sponsor: Circle H Builders, Christie Watson from Elegant Catering, Ed’s Bartending, and DJ John Q. Congrats to our winners:
Earlier this year, your chamber leadership asked the Town of Blythewood to provide additional wayfinding signs in the town center to help visitors better locate our visitors center, town hall, town park (Doko Meadows), library, post office, AND our businesses on McNulty St. who have often expressed their feelings of neglect.
Blythewood’s Christmas Parade is December 11th, 2016. Blythewood’s Transfiguration Church has officially taken over as the new organizer for the Blythewood Christmas Parade.
Construction on the Train Depot replica in Doko Meadows has started! Before it is finished, the Town of Blythewood asked us to create a survey to poll your input as to what kind of business should be recruited to occupy this important new asset to the town.
The 85-mile yard sale known as the Big Grab came to Blythewood on September 9th and 10th and brought thousands of visitors to town. For the first time the Greater Blythewood Chamber of Commerce was in charge of managing the logistics and marketing for the Richland County section, most of which was in the Blythewood town center.

Because you asked, we are bringing back our very first Leadership Blythewood speaker, Gerald Glascock, Director of the Southern Institute of Etiquette and Protocol, whose presentation is entitled “Is What Came Out of Your Mouth the Same Thing Your Body Said?”
Our speaker is Bob Wood from the Blythewood Historical Society who will share with us “Blythewood’s Most Famous Love Stories” as we celebrate Valentine’s Day!
