The offices of the Patrick County Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development and Tourism are excited to announce the Business exposition and job fair “Patrick County Showcase.”

The Patrick County Showcase will spotlight local businesses and services that they provide. The event will be held on Thursday, April 12 in the Memorial Building at Rotary Field from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and again that evening from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

In conjunction with the showcase will be a job fair for businesses hiring seasonal or permanent part and full-time employees.
