The Buy Local Business Expo is this Thursday, October 6 from 4:00 until 7:00 pm, the Chamber’s Business Expo will be showcasing local businesses from Columbia County and neighboring Greene County at Basilica Hudson, located at 110 South Front Street in Hudson.  Admission is free to the expo.  There is a $5 charge for beverage tastings; proceeds benefit the Columbia-Greene Leadership Program.

This year our own Nancy Fuller, host of Farmhouse Rules on the Food Network will be stopping by to receive the “From Local to Global Award” and she will have a booth as well.  The Business Expo is an excellent venue to learn what types of services are offered and what products are produced in this region.  In attendance will be service contractors, personal care products, solar companies, graphic designers, transportation and many other businesses.  Our Chamber members are very diverse.  

This year more than 50 businesses are participating and are eager to introduce themselves and share their knowledge.  And, just like last year, restaurants will be providing samples of their fare.  A further incentive to those who attend will be drawings offered by individual businesses. 

In the background will be the sounds of Christina Dellea.  Simply put, the Expo can be explained as music, prizes, and local products.  These counties have a lot to offer.  We want everyone to enjoy themselves, but our ultimate goal is to introduce all these businesses to residents.  For us, local support is the ultimate good neighbor policy.  Hope to see you there.  Contact the Chamber if you have questions at 518-828-4417.
