November Chamber Community Breakfast

Community

The Pickens County Chamber of Commerce hosts a monthly Community Breakfast that is open to Chamber members as well as the public. The most recent breakfast was held Tuesday, November 14th, 2017. Attendees arrived to a delicious breakfast catered by The Carriage House and enjoyed networking with the many people in attendance before beginning the program.

Sonny Proctor, the Board Chair Elect for the Pickens County Chamber of Commerce did the welcome and then Max Caylor did the Invocation. Which was followed by our new member welcome by Donna McDonald: Dragonflies Birthdays & Events, B&B Lawn Service & Landscaping, Pacific Rugs, Mountain Air Cleaning of Georgia, WingsOlogy, Marco’s Pizza, and AirMedCare Network. We encourage the community to reach out to these new members and learn about the services they offer. In addition, November’s Small Business of the Month, a program sponsored by Community Bank of Pickens County, was awarded to Garner Ace Hardware.  

The November Chamber Community Breakfast was sponsored by Piedmont Mountainside Hospital. Denise Ray with Piedmont Mountainside Hospital spoke about the hospital. She then introduced the speaker Jessie Rosenberg. Rosenberg, talked about philanthropy and how it has helped her.

After the sponsor remarks and speaker, the program was concluded by giving away door prizes.

GDOT: Asphalt Repair on HWY 136 in Pickens Begins

Press Release

Asphalt Repair on HWY 136 in Pickens County

JASPER, Ga. – Georgia DOT advises motorists on State Route (SR) 136 in Pickens County that a maintenance crew begins today its work on repairing and deep patching the deteriorating asphalt spots on this highway.  Work will proceed daily Tuesdaythrough Thursday from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. This maintenance operation and the temporary lane closure it necessitates are weather permitting and subject to change.

It is the Georgia DOT policy to repair and maintain Georgia interstates and state highways promptly, efficiently and economically using well-planned activities, proper equipment, and skilled and dedicated employees. Prompt repair of small asphalt pavement defects has significant impacts on reducing maintenance costs. Deep patching which will be used in this maintenance operation is one of the methods Georgia DOT uses to repair deteriorated, settled, cracking and dislodged pavement.

You know that construction work zones are dangerous, but do you know that they are not always stationary? Moving work zones that conduct maintenance activities like litter pickup, asphalt repair, mowing, edge pavement repair, pavement marking and sweeping may move slowly and stop intermittently. Treat moving work zones like any other – Pay Attention – Slow Down – Watch for Workers.  And always, expect the unexpected. Work zone safety is in your hands. For information on the Department of Transportation, visit http://www.dot.ga.gov.  You also may like us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/GDOTNW) and follow us on Twitter(https://twitter.com/GDOTNW).
