The Lewis County Chamber of Commerce hosted its second annual Ambassador Training at Stonewall Resort Tuesday morning. The event brought together groups across the county, from local businesses to government officials. The crowd spent the morning learning about all the opportunities available in the county, something that business owners said can only help them all.
"I think it's important to hear about other businesses and other businesspeople because we certainly as a community can help each other. It's all about working together and that's what makes your community grow," said Jill Stewart, owner of the Pink Moon Coffeehouse in Weston.
Members of local volunteer groups like the Jane Lew Lions Club also came out to the event to learn about opportunities to work with people in the county and show off ways they can use the county's resources.
"I feel like I learned a lot today, I have events to go to, and new businesses I've learned about, and so it's been well worth the time I spent," said Lions Club member Ruth Straley.
Chamber of Commerce Director Sherry Lambert organized the event. She said she wants all who attended to spread the word about the county's businesses, both to local residents, and outside the county lines.
"Hopefully what everyone has learned today will be taken back to their local businesses and everyone will be more informed as to the positive things we have going on in this county," said Lambert.
