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.
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.
Our May 9th breakfast speaker is Laura Ros from EngenuitySC. Laura is working on a social innovation project called What’s Next Midlands which uses crowdsourcing to identify issues in our community, then fund and implement various projects each year. She wants to include Blythewood!
