Chamber Surprises Businesses In The County


December 23, 2019

The Chamber's Surprise Patrol celebrates member Freeman Gas.

The Surprise Patrol Team at the Brevard/Transylvania Chamber of Commerce conducted its last mission of 2019 on Monday, Dec. 16.

Armed with noisemakers, Christmas-themed accessories and some goodies, Chamber staff Clark Lovelace and Emily Crowley Martin, and Chamber Ambassadors Kathy Mlay, Brittany Marcum and Jeff Joyce set out to surprise four Chamber businesses in the Rosman and Lake Toxaway areas. United Community Bank sponsored the patrol, showing their support of their fellow Chamber members and allowing the team to conduct their lively mission.

Dabbler Graphics, Forks of the River Taproom, Bear Tracks Travel Center and Freeman Gas all received a warm and boisterous greeting accompanied by a box of delicious cookies from Blue Ridge Bakery, a gift certificate for $100 in free advertising from WSQL Radio, and a public celebration of their business through local and social media and the Chamber e-news.

The team also surprised two of the Chamber's members who work from home. Instead of barging into their home unannounced, they each received an excited phone call from the Surprise Patrol Team, as well as a celebratory email to thank them for their membership and involvement. Amy Jackson, of Organizing Success, and Jeanette Lee, of UBS Financial Services, were the lucky recipients of the surprise phone call and a WSQL Radio gift certificate.

This Surprise Patrol was made possible through sponsorship support from United Community Bank. Be sure to check out their website at for more information. The Brevard/Transylvania Chamber of Commerce would like to thank Blue Ridge Bakery for the awesome cookies, WSQL Radio for their participation and prize donation, Egolf of Brevard for providing transportation and the Surprise Patrol Team for its rousing, loud, yet sincere efforts.
