Connect with Sandy business owners

The Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce will have its Good Morning Sandy Oktoberfest networking event at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7, at St. Michael Catholic Church, 18090 Langensand Road.

The event is held to give opportunities for local entrepreneurs to meet people from other businesses while enjoying some fun and door prizes.

Bring a dollar to enter a drawing, which gives prizes to the winners and saves 50 cents from each entrant to pay for gifts and food for a needy family next Christmas.
