Efforts Continue To Organize
Northern Brunswick Chamber
Efforts to organize businesses in
northern Brunswick County to pro
mote the area's economic and hu
man resources are advancing, with a
Lcland area chambcr of commerce
expected to become official in the
very near future.
"We're trying to get off the
ground with as few glitches as possi
ble and start doing some good for
the area," said Brad Bruestlc, one of
the initial organizers.
After several meetings, each at
tended by an average of 20 area
business people, Bruestlc said the
consensus is that the area needs a
chambcr of commerce.
"We want to unify the businesses
in the north Bruaswick area, includ
ing Lcland and the smaller comma
nitics that comprise the area such as
Navassa and Winnabow," said
Broad objectives ol the group,
which is in the process of reviewing
bylaws and articles of incorporation,
is to promote organized economic
growth and development and to ad
vance ihc commercial, financial, in
dustrial and civic interests of the
area. Among other things it would
serve as a central source of informa
tion regarding services and opportu
nities in the area, publishing a direc
tory and providing other communi
As part of an "aggressive" pro
gram of work to stimulate activities
to provide for full development of
the area's human and economic po
tential, the fledgling chamber wants
to promote a partnership between
the three North Brunswick schools
and local businesses.
Added Brucstlc, "Right now
we're just in the structuring stage,
the embryonic stage. We're getting a
core group of people together to pro
mote the chamber itself."
The Lcland area banker said it
looks like the effort "will materialize
as longtcrm commitment to the area."
"We're trying to get away from
the feuding of the past and look to
the future," he continued. "We're
excited about the future and we've
got to move on and work together."
At the next meeting, to be called
sometime in April, Brucstie said iic
expects members to approve the by
laws and establish a nominating
committee to come up with a slate
The organization has proposed a
charter membership dues structure
of S25 per year per member.
"It needs to be emphasized this is
an investment that every business
man and woman in the community
needs to make," said BruesUe.

Shallotte Board Looking
At Centralizing Vendors
Shalloltc officials arc interested in
establishing a central location in
town to gel seafood, produce and
other vendors off Main Street.
Town aldermen arc trying to
come up with a compromise that
will allow vendors to keep setting up
in town without stealing business
from taxpaying merchants or creat
ing traffic problems.
"I don't want them on Main
Street where all the traffic is pulling
in and out," Alderman Morris Hall
said at a board meeting last week.
Hall also said allowing vendors to
set up beside the road isn't fair to
business owners who pay taxes.
"We're here to protect the merch
At one point. Hall suggested the
town prohibit vendors along Main
Street if they don't have access to
But Alderman Wilton Harrclson
said he wouldn't go along with any
rules that would keep fishermen
from selling their catch or farmers
from selling their producc. "That's
part of local tradition," he said.
Mayor Sarah Tripp said she heard
a lot of complaints about vendors af
ter the town's last Christmas Parade.
She said vendors came from all
over to sell refreshments and mer
chandise at the parade. 'They came
out of the woodwork. When the pa
rade was over they disappeared like
Mrs. Tripp said the vendors cut
into the profits of businesses and
hurt local civic clubs that tried to
raise money during the parade.
The South Brunswick Islands
Civitan Club set up two hot dog
stands but only made S87, she said.
Hall said he would like to see
something similar to a flea market,
like the one in Little River, S.C. All
of the vendors would benefit if they
were in the same spot, he said, and
the town would benefit too.
Other board members agreed that
a central location would be nice, but
they didn't have any idea where it
could be located.
"1 love to go to flea markets and
other people do too," Mayor Tripp
saiu. "I can see where it would be an
asse' to the town if people knew we
had a flea market in town."
