While it won’t technically be spring until March 20, the way this winter has gone, people probably won’t complain about a (hopefully) warmer season.

To kick things off, the Oregon Area Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual Spring Business Expo from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, March 12 at Firefly Coffeehouse & Artisan Cheese, 114. N. Main St.

Advertising “Something for Everyone,” this year’s free event will feature more than 30 businesses, showcase a variety of goods and services and provide many networking opportunities.

For information, call the chamber at 835-3697.
