The 9th Annual Talbot County Business Appreciation Breakfast will be held Friday, April 21 at 8 a.m. at the Milestone Event Center located at 9630 Technology Drive in Easton. The cost to attend is $25 per person.
Hosted by the Talbot County Department of Economic Development and Tourism, together with the Talbot County Economic Development Commission, the breakfast annually celebrates the contributions made by businesses throughout the county. Awards will also be presented to those businesses and individuals who have exhibited a significant impact in the community in the past year.
“It’s important that we take time to celebrate the successes of our business community,” says Tim Jones, chairman of the Talbot County Economic Development Commission. “We recognize that our businesses provide jobs for our residents, but we often overlook the other important roles businesses play in our communities.
“Businesses help employ our volunteer firefighters, support local community organizations such as Scouts and Rotary, and provide resources to our schools,” he continues. “I hope others will join me in saying a collective ‘thank you’ to our business community for all they do for us and our families.”
The keynote address for the breakfast will be provided by Lt. Governor Boyd K. Rutherford. He will share insights from his career as an accomplished attorney with experience in both the public and private sectors.
The breakfast receives support from breakfast sponsors, including 1880 Bank, Easton Airport, Easton Utilities, M&T Bank, Provident State Bank, Shore United Bank, and University of Maryland Shore Regional Health.
