Work continues on the 2022 Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce Guide. We are distributing more than 7,000 of these guides to visitors, relocation seekers, and even township champions interested in learning more about our local business. It includes historical information as well as all the things to see and do in Hopkins County. The best part is that it includes an alphabetical and categorical list of your business. LeeAnn Peugh, with Echo Publishing, will contact you to see if you are interested in placing an ad in the directory.
Prices are reasonable, and it’s one of the best ways to represent your business. I hope you consider this a wise investment with over 7000 business exposure opportunities. You can also call the room, and I will pass on your information to them.
