Hot dogs, tires, and mini-trade show to highlight cookout
There is only one way you can win a set of tires and enjoy a high performance hot dog. The answer is simple - attend Bridgestone's 80th Anniversary Celebration and the Aiken Chamber's Membership Appreciation Cookout on March 31.
The free luncheon from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. is a special way for the Chamber to say thank you to those who continually invest in Aiken's future and to honor event sponsor Bridgestone on its 80th year of operation.
"Our members are the backbone for creating jobs and economic prosperity for area citizens, and we want to recognize and show our appreciation for their contributions," said 2011 Chair Frank Thomas, Security Federal Bank.
"At the same time the event creates a perfect opportunity for all of us to help Bridgestone celebrate its milestone anniversary," Thomas said.
Local Bridgestone Plant Manager John Stewart is pleased to be a part of the membership appreciation event. "As Bridgestone celebrates its 80th anniversary, we are proud to sponsor this event as a way to say thanks to the community for their support," he said.
Management from the local Bridgestone plant will be on hand, grilling and serving hot dogs and fixins' picnic style to Chamber members.
The event will include a mini trade show featuring goods and services of Chamber members. As an added value, Bridgestone will give a set of four passenger or light truck tires to one lucky winner. Attendees must visit all trade show booths to be eligible to win.
