Chamber’s December breakfast to feature Haynes as speaker

David Haynes will be the featured speaker Dec. 19 at the Chamber of Commerce’s Power in Partnership breakfast at Trinity Oaks, 728 Klumac Road.

The breakfast starts at 7:30 a.m. and costs $15 for members and $25 for non-members of the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce. The reservation deadline is Dec. 17 by noon.

Haynes has served on numerous boards over the years and has been involved in charity work. He is a past recipient of the “To Those Who Care Award” presented by Greensboro’s WFMY- TV Channel 2 for a church ministry that he began in 2000.
