The 2023 edition of the Clinton Chamber of Commerce Business Expo saw a successful turnout.

Petersen indicated in addition to the 50 vendors present, attendees could participate in a raffle and view demonstrations from Clinton YMCA and Clinton High School Thespians.
Non-profit organizations were present at the Expo including the Weldon Springs Foundation. Stephanie Russell, Foundation President, was on hand to promote a couple of upcoming events the Foundation is hosting.
