Chamber Bricks for Business paving the way

The Greater Hall Chamber’s “Bricks for Business” program is a fundraiser utilizing 500 brick pavers sponsored by local businesses and individuals as a walkway entrance to the new Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce building. The walkway entrance of the new facility will feature a path of engraved bricks. Bricks are $50 per brick and will be engraved with the sponsoring business or individual’s name.

The “Bricks for Business” program will promote the many supporting businesses and individuals in Hall County and is expected to raise some $25,000. Proceeds will be used for new technology in the Chamber building.

As part of The HALLmark Initiative, the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce is constructing a 7,000 square foot building and renovating the old building, bringing the total size of the new Chamber business center headquarters to 10,500 square feet. The building features two skylights that bring attention to the mountains of North Georgia and the Chamber logo.

In addition to offices for the staff of the Greater Hall Chamber, the building will feature a large meeting room that will seat 50 and other conference rooms, as well as new space for a Welcome Center with display space and interactive kiosks. The newest in technology will be used throughout the building located at 230 E. E. Butler Parkway in downtown Gainesville.

Georgia Marble will provide the brick and the engraving services. Georgia Marble has implemented brick programs for The Atlanta Centennial Olympic Games, University of Georgia, Emory University and The Citadel. Local brick programs have been used at the Gainesville Civic Center, Lakeview Academy and Gainesville High School.

Pam McNeilly, Regions Bank and Gary Hutchins, Northeast Georgia Medical Center are Co-Chairs of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce “Bricks for Business” program.
