John Church (center) and Jennifer Church (right) were the hosts with Brian Hackett when Chronicle Millworks sponsored Network After Work on Thursday, May 9, 2019. A massive crowd of Chamber members and friends enjoyed barbecue and brews, seeing the beautiful furniture being created from wood salvaged from old textile mills and making business connections. Part of the event featured a raffle of a $1500 set of tables, which raised more than $500 for the Gaston County Public Library System.

Barbecue and brews and the smell of centuries old wood will welcomed Chamber members and friends to the Network After Work at Chronicle Millworks Thursday evening. Chronicle Millworks is where owner John Church and Brian Hackett are reclaiming and bringing back to life beautiful wood that for the past century formed the floors and beams of the textile mills which drove the economy of our region. They’re designing and building tables, chairs and other furniture from old mill wood.

This was a unique Network After Work. An open house began at 4 p.m., and the Chamber event kicked off at 5:30 and continuing until 7. 
Participants were invited to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a coffee and end table set valued at $1,500, with proceeds going to the Gaston County Public Libraries. Each raffle ticket purchase also got the buyer a set of wooden Chronicle Mill coasters. Coasters also were given as door prizes.
