Prior to Ms. Woody’s talk to the Chambers, Executive Director of the Chatham Chamber, Carolyn Cherry, said that it is critical for businesses to be involved in the community, to increase credibility and name recognition.  Cheryl Smith, President of the Chatham Chamber, encouraged businesses “to get involved in the community and become active members of the Chamber.”

Dr. Allison Hurley, a dentist from Chatham, is an example of a member of the business community who is very active in the community.  She spoke about her efforts to supply candy, beanie babies and notes to our troops through Operation Gratitude.  She said that on November 1st and 2nd from 3-5 p.m. at her office located at 585 Main Street in Chatham, children can bring in Halloween candy and receive $1 per pound for the candy, through a candy buyback program.  For more information about Operation Gratitude, visit
