On Wednesday, July 11, 2012, the Gettysburg Adams County Chamber of Commerce held a special membership breakfast in Biglerville, PA recognizing members that remain dedicated to growing businesses in the Central Pennsylvania region. Sponsored by Knouse Foods Inc., an international food service company headquartered in Biglerville in northern Adams County, the event welcomed more than 50 regional businesses.
Junction Creative Solutions (Junction) was presented with a certificate commemorating its first year of membership. Mark Cropp, Executive Director, Business Development and Partnerships NE received the certificate on behalf of Junction. “We are extremely pleased to have reached this first milestone in our efforts to make a positive impact on businesses in Gettysburg Adams County and the greater Central Pennsylvania area,” said Mark.
The anniversary also marks one year since the formal inception of Junction’s Gettysburg, PA office, extending the Atlanta, GA-based company’s reach in support of businesses throughout the Northeast. In its first year in the region, Junction sponsored the JXN Executive Roundtable event, bringing together more than 25 business owners and community leaders from the area to engage in a dialogue focused creating more successful and sustainable business amidst a challenging economic climate.
Attendees at the breakfast shared information about their products and services and had the opportunity to hear from elected state representatives on issues facing businesses in the Central Pennsylvania region. State Senator Rich Alloway spoke about the recently completed budgetary process in Harrisburg and how the legislation would affect the business community.
Following the meeting, attendees participated in a “Cash Mob” at Pomona’s Bakery and Cafe, where the group reconvened in support of the local business.
