Next week there are two events that people should be on the look out for. August's Business After Hours is taking place on the 17th where people are able to eat, drink, and meet chamber members to get to know exactly who runs the many businesses in town. Patty Hornbuckle, CEO of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce said this month's Business After Hours is a little different than usual because two businesses are hosting, Central Illinois Smiles and the First National Bank of Taylorville.
On Saturday August 19th, Central Illinois Community Blood Center is coming out to the Taylorville square for blood donations. During the summer is when blood is especially needed, and Hornbuckle said the Blood Center has a special program that offers incentives to donors.
More information can be found by calling the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce at 217-824-4919 or visiting their offices on the second floor of US Bank on the Taylorville Square. Hornbuckle appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
