  • That Place on 319 hosts Chamber luncheon

    Of the Chamber

    I always enjoy conversing with people inquiring about our local businesses and I have the most fun when I receive calls for the little restaurant on Crawfordville Highway.
    “What is the name of that little restaurant on the highway?”
    “You mean That Place on 319?”
    “Yes, that one – what’s the name of it?” You get the idea. And That Place is where some networking was going on Wednesday, June 26, at our monthly networking luncheon.
