TIMMONSVILLE, S.C. – The Florence County Economic Development Partnership held its quarterly networking event at Glenview Farms Thursday evening.

Cameron C. Packett, membership relations manager, said the event was a chance for members of Florence County Progress to come together.

“This is a networking event for the members of Florence County Progress,” Packett said. “We get together with some drinks and food, network and do business together. It’s just a great time.”

Packett said hosting events like these allow business and social leaders in Florence county to develop relationships, which is important for the progress of the entire county.

“It’s very important for all of us to get together because we bring different perspectives from all around Florence County,” Packett said.

Packett said that Florence County Progress will be hosting several events in the fall, including its annual golf tournament and oyster roast.

“That will be a well-attended event, probably around 300-400 people,” Packett said. “It’s an exciting time and it’s a great time join Florence Economic Progress.”

Florence County Progress works to recruit new business and industry to the area while helping existing industry expand. For more information or to join the partnership, contact Packett at cpackett@florenceco.org or 843-676-8796.
