Helping small businesses survive and thrive is the goal of Thursday morning’s Washington-Wilkes Chamber of Commerce Small Business Breakfast.

The breakfast is set for Thursday at 8 a.m. at Talk of the Town2 on The Square.

Standing in for Neil Gordon will be Bill Botham, formerly the weekly host of Comcast Connect Live. “Neil Gordon had some business come up with the Masters, and will not be able to speak at the breakfast,” Ashley Barnett said. “He is sending Bill Botham in his place. Bill works for Neil Gordon’s firm, and we are excited about having him speak.”

“I’m looking forward to learning what businesses are doing around the country to increase their business during the downturn in the economy,” said Ty Staples, Chamber board member. “I hope local small business people will get some good ideas they can use.”

The breakfast costs $10 a ticket for Chamber of Commerce members and $12 a ticket for non-members.
