WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The 11th annual Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce Business Expo held Saturday morning again will be partnered with a senior fair and the Waynesboro Lions Club all-you-can-eat pancake and sausage breakfast.

Forty-seven vendors have signed up for the business expo, an increase of 11 from 2006.

"We actually had to add a new section to our (booths) layout," said Carlene Willhide, the Chamber's membership manager.

Bingo, with the top prize listed as a 27-inch television, will again have participants visiting booths for stamps on a card, Willhide said.

The senior fair hosted by state Rep. Todd Rock, R-Franklin, will have information from state and local agencies about taxes, prescription drug coverage, veterans' affairs and health care.

Funds from the Lions Club breakfast will benefit ongoing community service projects, including low-cost eye exams and eye glasses.

"We've been organized since 1929, which is 78 years, and this community is better off because of the Lions Club," Lion Ed Miller recently told the Waynesboro Borough Council.


Tickets for the breakfast cost $5 for adults and $2.50 for children ages 5 to 12.

Rouzerville, Pa., will be represented at the expo by the Rouzerville Business Association and stores like Lowe's and Wal-Mart. Representatives of the Small Business Development Center from Shippensburg (Pa.) University will explain how the center can assist in the establishment and early stages of new businesses.
