PINEVILLE -- McDonald County Chamber of Commerce officials are planning for the annual Business Expo and Health Fair this fall.
The in-person event will take place from 8 a.m. to noon on Sept. 11 in the McDonald County High School gym.
Chamber officials are excited to host the event, after last year's was cancelled because of the covid-19 pandemic, said Terra Sanders, Chamber office administrator.
The event has been a big draw, featuring more than 90 participants.
"In years past, we've had over 400 people come through our expo," she said.
Officials are expecting a good number of participants after transferring the 2020 vendors' registrations to this year. More are anticipated, she said.
The event will feature a silent auction, door prizes, free food provided by Opaa Foods, and health screenings by the Freeman Screen Team.
Officials plan to recognize the importance of 9/11.
"With our expo falling on September 11th, we are going with a patriotic theme," she said.
The American Legion will post the colors and a moment of silence will take place at 8:45 a.m. when the towers fell, Sanders added.
