Madison Chamber of Commerce Hosts Annual Business Expo
Dozens of businesses and organizations packed Madison County's fire hall Thursday for a chance to meet and greet the community at the annual Madison County Business Expo. Those taking part included the Madison County Farmers Market, the American Red Cross and the Boys and Girls Club.
The chamber of commerce puts on the business expo as a way to pair up businesses with potential customers.
Tracey Gardner with the Madison County Chamber of Commerce says the event grows each year and that many people who come out are surprised to see businesses they didn't even know existed in the area. She says it's a way to boost the local economy and have fun while doing so.
Fifty-nine different businesses came out for the event.
