Chamber to hold Eggs and Issues breakfast
Placeholder Image
The Effingham Chamber of Commerce is holding its annual Eggs and Issues Breakfast on Dec. 8 at 7:30 a.m. at First Baptist Church in Rincon.
The annual event is an opportunity to visit with state legislators and hear their responses to current issues and questions concerning Effingham County. State Sen. Jack Hill and state Reps. Jon Burns and Ann Purcell will be in attendance and will address the audience and ask questions.
There will be a panel discussion with Hill, Burns and Purcell. The Chamber’s Governmental Affairs committee prepared a list of issues for the elected officials involving funding for transportation, education, health care, support for economic development and how the 2011 session of the General Assembly could affect the community.   
“We expect a record turnout for this event,” Chamber President Randy Shearouse said. “Last year we had over 150 attendees at the Eggs and Issues Breakfast. We expect a record turnout again on Dec. 8.”
Attendees will be invited to submit their written questions to the program’s moderator who will direct them to our panel of elected officials.
The Chamber asks that reservations be made by Dec. 3 for a meal count. Contact the chamber by calling 754-3301 or e-mail
