The Chamber of Commerce and some of our Ambassadors welcomed a new business to town…that’s inside an already established business! A Natural Glo Pottery Practice is up and running. It’s located inside Emorbe Emporium at 102 N. Main in Clinton. Here’s more from Gloria: Our mission/goal would be to create a Makerspace. This could also be considered a Third Space. “The third place refers to the social surroundings that are separate from the two usual social environments of home (“first place”) and the workplace (“second place”).  So it is our mission to create this much needed third space in our community to provide a place for creative connection.


On the eve of Flag Day, which is today (6/14), Elks Lodge #1034 replaced the American Flag in front of the Chamber of Commerce. Thanks!!

Calling all those concerned about child care options or the future of your child care business? Join a research focus group to explore new options.


Family providers are the bulk of our childcare workforce. Yet they operate as individual small businesses. One or two people shoulder the heavy management, finance, and regulatory load.

W H A T I F?

Could cooperative approaches help? Opportunities include:

· Shared Services like Paperwork processing or Group purchasing

· New Revenue like Employer contracts or Public funding streams

· Mutual Support like Capacity building or Programming

Meet with us at an upcoming event. Attend a session online.

We would love to hear from family care providers to understand how these cooperative approaches might or might not work for your business.

We welcome your thoughts about:

· Organizing a childcare cooperative

· Converting a retiring operation

· Adding cooperative elements
