Edible play-dough, indoor snow made from a mix of baking soda and other ingredients, and catching fish you couldn’t see in the pond were among the several children’s activities that Danville Child Development Center’s children do each day and were also experienced by attendees at a Business After Hours hosted by DCDC on Wednesday, Jan. 31. Members were given a card when they walked into the event and were given a sticker to put on it after they completed each children’s activity, and those that completed each one and got all of their stickers were able to enter a drawing for a prize – tickets to DCDC’s upcoming Dueling Pianos event. In between reliving their childhoods by participating in these children’s activities, members also had an opportunity to catch up with and meet others in the local business community, while also learning about the influence early childhood education plays in our future workforce. They also enjoyed some delicious food made specially for the event by the DCDC kitchen staff, which definitely tasted much better than the typical school lunch that many may have remembered from their school days.
Business After Hours provide regular opportunities to build business relationships while learning about the services offered by other Chamber members. The next Business After Hours will be held at Art of Floating, located at 1924 Old Berwick Rd., on Wednesday, Feb. 21, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. It will also feature Just a Drop as a co-host.
