Chamber Plans
Visit to China!
The Yadkin County Chamber of
Commerce is organizing an opportunity
to explore China for area Chamber
members, business owners or anyone
interested in world travel. The nine-day
trip, which will include stops in Beijing,
Shanghai, Hangzhou and Suzhou, is
scheduled for Oct. 19-27. The trip is
open to chamber members and nonmembers. The cost for members is
$2,475 and $2,575 for non-members.
The price includes round-trip airfare
from JFK, all transportation within
China, five-star hotel accommodations,
three meals a day, English speaking
tour guide, sightseeing and more. Bobby
Todd of the Yadkin County Chamber of
Commerce had an opportunity to visit
China on a similar trip last October and
he said it was amazing. “We had a great
experience,” he said. “The Chinese people
are friendly, they’re very inquisitive. It
was just a great experience.” Seeing and
walking on The Great Wall of China
and visiting the market in Shanghai
were some of his favorite things. He
said the meals during the trip were
fantastic, and accommodations were as
nice as anywhere. The trip is organized
specifically for business leaders and
chamber members though anyone
interested in Chinese culture and
tourism would enjoy it, Todd said. There
are numerous other chamber groups
from the United States that participate
and Todd said it is a great opportunity
to network.
Highlights for the upcoming trip will
include tourist stops in Beijing, Tian An
Men Square, Temple of Heaven, The
Forbidden City, Summer Palace, The
Great Wall of China, Ming Tombs and
“We visited a lot of cultural and tourist
sites, as well as a meeting with business
leaders in China,” Todd said of his
previous trip to China. “We had a sit
down dinner with them and had a lot
of good dialogue, discussing ways to
improve economies in both countries.”
Deadline to participate in the trip is
July 1. For more information about the
upcoming trip or to register, call, email,
or visit the Chamber Office located at
205 South Jackson Street
in downtown Yadkinville.

People with diabetes can develop many different
foot problems. Even ordinary problems can get
worse and lead to serious complications. Calluses
and corns, if not properly, treated can break down
into ulcers and lead to infection. Neuropathy, or
nerve damage, can lead to changes in the shape of
your feet and toes.
At “Our Yadkinville” Blue Ridge Medical Group, we
provide comprehensive examination, treatment
and routine maintenance care of your feet.
