The Clinton Chamber of Commerce is one of many local entities to take precautions with the developments surrounding the coronavirus this week.
Earlier today (Friday), the Chamber announced the postponement of their annual business expo on Thursday, March 26. Executive Director Marian Brisard says it was the right decision to make as a lot of older residents enjoy time at the expo on top of the restrictions imposed by Governor JB Pritzker Thursday afternoon.
Brisard stresses this event will be rescheduled because of its importance to them and their businesses that participate. It is one of the bigger fundraisers and it is also a good networking opportunity for businesses that participate.
Brisard thanks the Chamber Board for their work in making a big decision like this and the help of local officials in keeping the community safe.
