30th Annual Fayette Chamber Expo
Right at Home Community Outreach Liaisons from East and South Atlanta, Francine Oglesby and Jack Moon, hosted a booth at the Fayette Chamber's 30th Annual Business and Community Expo. The Expo provided an opportunity for business and the community to connect face-to-face. Now, more than ever, support for local businesses is crucial to the economic health of the Fayette community. This free, family-friendly, accessible event was an opportunity to discover solutions for the home and office. By taking the expo outside, there was ample room for both visitors and exhibitors to social distance.
