Business Outlook A quarterly publication of the Henderson-Vance County Chamber of Commerce and The Daily Dispatch Wednesday, August 8, 2012 • 3rd Quarter Castaways to perform at final Meet Me in the Street The third and final “Meet Me in the Street” concert for 2012 will be held on September 13 and will feature The Castaways — a band with nearly 50 years of experience in the beach music industry. From their beginning in Durham in 1961, The Castaways have been pleasing audiences with their unique flavor of beach, soul, and rock n’ roll music. The Henderson-Vance County Chamber of Commerce hosts these free, local concerts which are presented by sponsors Harris Incorporated of Henderson and Budweiser. The 2012 “Meet Me in the Street” concert series started out with a few surprises. The first event, scheduled for April 26, had to be postponed due to inclement weather and was rescheduled for May 11. That event, which featured local band, The Konnection, turned out to be a perfect evening with food, fun and a dancing crowd. The second event was held on May 31 with The Entertainers commanding the stage. Again the weather cooperated with temperatures well into the 90s. These concerts are made possible by our many Chambermember sponsors. Gold sponsors for this year are BB&T, Maria Parham Medical Center and Toyota of Henderson. Silver Sponsors are AA Self Storage, AAA Gas & Appliance Company, Greenway’s Authentic Charcoal Grill, P&G Petcare, Philips Optimum, Progress Energy and Satterwhite Point Marina. Other sponsors include: Contributing sponsors Bobbitt Signs, For Your Occasion Party Rentals, Franklin Brothers Nursery & Greenhouses, Inc., KARTS, Kerr Lake Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Mike Brooks Productions, Quick Print, Rural Health Group at Henderson and US Cellular; Food and Beverage sponsors Coca-Cola, Community Workforce Solutions, Harris Incorporated of Henderson, Pizza Inn and Sunset Slush. Media sponsors for each event are The Daily Dispatch, WIZS 1450 Radio and WLUS 98.3. The Castaways will bring their nearly 50 years of experience in the beach music industry to bear for the final Meet Me in the Street event scheduled for Sept. 13.
