December's ​Women in Business was hosted by Watkinsville First Christian Church and it was    spectacular. 
​When walking in the door we were greeted with Christmas music played on the piano and beautiful holiday decorations. 
​First Christian's famous Chicken Mull and delicious vegetable soups were served along with fresh salads and breads. 
​Followed by an abundance of sweets! 
​Ashley Callahan, author of Southern Tufts -- the book about the chenille industry in Georgia, was the speaker. The chenille industry is part of the Watkinsville business community history. It was a very fascinating presentation and we all loved hearing of the Chenille industry and the women behind it. 
​And to the end the program lots of amazing door prizes were given away. 
​Thank you to Ashley Callahan for speaking to our women. Also a very special thank you to First Watkinsville Christian Church and Sheila Hunter for such a wonderful event!
