It took several meetings, numerous phone calls and emails, and a whole lot of planning to make it happen, but the Plano Community EXPO was a good one.

Conducted last week, on Wednesday, Oct. 24, the chamber-sponsored expo offered area business people and nonprofit organizers an opportunity to meet face-to-face. At the same time, the community was welcome to learn more about the businesses and nonprofits with booths. The high school band played, music was provided by other local musicians and attendees had an opportunity to meet one of Kendall County’s K-9 officers and his four-legged partner.

The expo followed Plano High School’s career day, so a few of the businesses took advantage of both opportunities. And as one of the organizers of the expo, I found the staff at the high school easy to work with.

It was a great opportunity for me to chat with the readers who stopped to say hello. And, I even managed to collect a few story ideas. Thanks for your input, and for your help in making the expo a great event.

We also want our readers to know we have a new way to connect. Along with our website, which is updated just once a week, we have a new Facebook page. We’re just getting started with it, but I hope to post to it at least once a day. It’s a much more immediate way to connect, and millions use Facebook every day. So, give us a like on Facebook.

Have a great week and enjoy this Valley Free Press.It took several meetings, numerous phone calls and emails, and a whole lot of planning to make it happen, but the Plano Community EXPO was a good one.
