Recreation & Parks Topic of Young Professionals' Lunch

The Connect Young Professionals, the Greenwood Chamber’s premier young professional’s organization, will welcome Lander Professor Ann Butler as their featured speaker at a new “Monthly Mingle” luncheon set for March 18 at 12:00 noon.

“Greenwood’s young professionals are concerned about green space and recreation,” said Angelle LaBorde, Chamber CEO.  “Our CYP leadership team is actively making a difference and has organized the ‘Ales for Trails’ event on March 16 to provide funding for parks,” she said.

Butler is a board member with the Greater Greenwood Parks & Trails Foundation and will provide an update on the Grace Street Park and future initiatives. As a biology professor, she has mentored and engaged university students, faculty, and staff in projects at Grace Street Park.  She also wrote and was awarded a Duke Energy grant to design and create a Sensory Garden on the premises.

The program begins at 12:00 noon at the Greenwood Chamber, 110 Phoenix Street, and is designed to bring together young adults, ages 21 – 40, for an informative presentation and new connections. The meeting is open to newcomers and young professionals.

Lunch will be provided and there is a nominal fee of $10 to cover lunch expenses, payable to the Greenwood SC Chamber.  Seating is limited. Register at or call (864) 889-9314 for more information.
