June after-hours party coming in Richmond Hill

The Richmond Hill/Bryan County Chamber of Commerce will host its June Business After Hours from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, June 18, at the Urgent Care Center of Richmond Hill, 60 Exchange St.

Attendees will have a chance to meet the center’s staff and learn a little about the business while enjoying drinks, hors d’oeuvres and entertainment from Stewart Marshall.

Lori Gaylor and Catherine Grant founded the urgent care center, and Dr. Robert Mazur has been its medical director since its inception in 2009.

The center has recently added a second medical director, Dr. J. David Carson.

“From the moment a patient walks through our doors, we aim to greet them with warm smiles and compassionate hearts that are ready to deliver extraordinary care,” Grant said.

Gaylor said the center tries to ensure its services meet and exceed the community’s needs.

RSVP for the after hours gathering by calling 912-220-2976 or emailing ashley@lesleyfrancispr.com.

Pace Lighting has announced that a majority of its ownership shares have been transferred to Lisa Dixon, Tabitha Thomas and Lindsay Williams.
