Two notes:

1 – I think it’s interesting that the Chair of the Augusta County Chamber of Commerce is speaking in addition to someone from the Charlottesville-Albemarle Chamber of Commerce. I can’t find the story, but I seem to recall reading (even writing) about how Crozet is in Augusta/Waynesboro’s MSA. This makes total sense.

2 – Did you notice the new Google + pages for businesses? Also, the two glowing reviews … from 10 months ago?
