We have a great Business After Hours planned this month. The date? Thursday, August 19, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. It will be at Belvedere Commons, 2000 Principal Lane in Fort Walton Beach. (That's near Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.) Remember, each Chamber member is encouraged to bring a guest -- so bring your guest and some business cards and network while you're having fun. No RSVP necessary - just come on down!

Volunteers Needed for AFAD-We need YOU to help with Armed Forces Appreciation Day! Please contact Patti Bohnsack- patti@fwbchamber.org at the Chamber for more information (850-244-8191).

We can promise that you'll have a great time.

Support the Chamber and our Members on the 
Pepsi Refresh website

The Fort Walton Beach Chamber Foundation and several of our members have submitted grant proposals to Pepsi for their Refresh the Gulf voting.  Just who gets the various grants will depend on votes from the public -- and we hope that our most supportive public will be YOU, our members. So please go to the Pepsi Refresh website and submit your votes for these projects and others -- you can vote for up to 10 different projects each and every day. The projects with the most votes win -- so please vote every day through August 31.  YOU can help bring cash, visitors, jobs, music, and more to our own Emerald Coast.
