There was a time when you had to travel outside the county for many products and services.

  

That's not the case any longer, and hundreds of people saw that last week at the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce's annual Business Expo.

  

About 70 local businesses from across the county set up informational booths Oct. 6 at the Lakeview Center to showcase their products and services to the community.

  

"The parking lot was full by 4:15 p.m.," said chamber vice president Marty Williams. "And more arrived as they got off work."

  

Linda Williams, president of the chamber, said she was happy with the turnout, both from the community and the business vendors.

  

"We were glad to see such great attendance and so many new faces this year, and we are so appreciative of the businesses that were there, and wow, the door prizes they gave out were wonderful," she said.

  

Organizers aren't sure if it was the fabulous door prizes or the food samples by some of Dawson County's favorite restaurants and caterers that brought out the crowds.

  

"The food the restaurants brought out was excellent. Everyone went out of their way to bring the top of the line food for everyone to taste," said Marty Williams. "We've had nothing but positive responses to the event."
