Here in Caswell County, there is a vibrant art community that is becoming larger and stronger. If you visit the Caswell County Council for the Arts or especially if you stop into the Milton Studio Art Gallery, you will see right away that ART is indeed a business that can make us all smile.

 

On a beautiful Saturday morning in September, the Chamber and gallery owner, Shirley Cadmus sat down to discuss a few exciting recognitions that this particular Caswell Artist is being recognized for in October.  

The Caswell County Chamber of Commerce reaches beyond our County borders in order to service businesses that are our neighbors in surrounding counties and provide them opportunities to become engaged in the Caswell community. Security Alliance in Danville, VA is one of those companies.

Mike and Tammy Miller have always wanted to be their own boss. Their new smoothie shop is located on Highway 86 between two other Chamber members, the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant and Sista’s Touch Salon.  They were officially welcomed to the community on Saturday, August 15 at their Ribbon Cutting ceremony at their Grand Opening.

There are roughly 11,000 Starbucks locations in the United States, and about 14,000 McDonald's restaurants. But combined, the two chains don't come close to the number of museums in the U.S., which stands at a whopping 35,000.

 

A few years ago, there was a report conducted by an independent government agency, the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences sharing these statistics. 

Did you know that Caswell County is being highlighted across the world in a very positive light twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week (24/7)?

 

At the Chamber, our job is to help create an environment where businesses can thrive.  We work to be a catalyst for positive change in the community by working to meet the educating, networking and marketing needs of our business community.  Sometimes that means connecting small rural businesses with others in the area so that thoughts & ideas, inspiration, and concepts can be discussed and vetted. 

Half Time.  You may have heard the phrase, of course associated with ball games mostly.  Several years ago, a friend of mine suggested I read a book called Half Time, by Bob Buford, which was not about ball games at all.  It was about the concept that in the first half of our lives we are busy being successful... focused on ourselves, working our way up in life, saving money and accumulating stuff. 

 

It all began when her husband returned from the last of 5 Tours of Duty in Iraq.  Jennifer Hambright realized she needed to understand what her husband had been through in service to our nation so she could help him, herself and their marriage survive.

 

 

You may know them as Caswell Tire Company.  Since 1963 the establishment has been a steadfast location on Main Street in Yanceyville that beckons those with vehicle trouble to stop in.

 

 

Never before has ‘perseverance’ been such a necessity for all of us in Caswell as well as in our state, nation and worldwide as we all make our way through these COVID-19 times.

 

 

There is a small business in Yanceyville that has positively impacted many of our lives.  Helping us to look and feel more confident, polished, professional and even more pretty or handsome.

 

 

Here in Caswell County is a group of successful businessmen that have retired from their ‘real jobs’ and are now involved in farming...but not your typical row crop type of farming.  These individuals had connections with farms in Caswell and have returned here to farm the land and to build an organization to help out others that may be just getting their start with living off the land.
