  • Wakulla Environmental hosts

    Of the Chamber

    The dog trot at Wakulla Environmental Institute was the perfect place to hold our February luncheon. We thank our gracious host Bob Ballard and his assistant Josie at WEI for setting up and hosting our 101 attendees for our barbecue feast catered by Aaron Baker and his staff at Hamaknockers BBQ, and I am sure you could smell the food a mile away.

  • Shepard Accounting Ribbon Cutting

    Owning a small business has its challenges, and it is definitely not for the faint at heart! If you don’t mind hard work and long hours, somewhere down the road it also has its rewards.
    Shepard Accounting & Tax Service held a “final’ ribbon cutting on Jan. 9. We say final because Shepard Accounting has recently purchased and moved to their permanent location at 3234 Crawfordville Highway. Congratulations!
