Business Expo - A Great Success!By, Mark D. Rosekrans
The 3rd annual Business Expo was held at Charlotte High School this past weekend, April 22- 23, 2017, and was a great success!!!
Approximately 90 businesses, service providers, community organizations and non-profits participated in the event. Along with these organizations, our school district was able to showcase not only our high school, but also our other school buildings, departments and facilities, which included our Charlotte Performing Arts Center, Charlotte Aquatics Center, Weymouth Child Development Center, and our Transportation Department.
The event takes considerable coordination and effort by all involved. Many thanks and much appreciation goes out to the Locals in Business and the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce. The event organizers shared they had over 700 participants attend on Saturday and over 300 on Sunday. This is no small undertaking and it seems to go very, very smooth. Set-up and take down activities, as well at the event itself are done without any impact to school functions or operations.
The school district is very pleased to be able to host the Expo. We look forward to the Expo continuing in future years with the cooperation of business and service leaders in the Charlotte area. This is yet another example of the business and services community and the school district working together for the advancement of the Charlotte community. Well done by all involved!!!
Go Orioles! Oriole Pride!
