WAYNE – This week’s Friday morning chamber coffee host will be Wayne America and Mikey C Productions.
Plan on visiting the Table Coffee House located at 203 Main Street for an event put on Wayne Area Economic Development each Friday. Chamber coffee will begin at 10 a.m. with a social followed by upcoming chamber events and the host, Michael Carnes wanting the thank the community.
Carnes is the publisher of wayneamerica.com and owner of Mikey C Productions. He said after departing from the Wayne Herald he wanted to build something from the ground up.
“You know a lot of reports you hear or a lot of the stories you hear about business start-ups is that usually within the first two-three years about 90% of them are gone,” said Carnes. “So, I’ve made it three years and I think that’s a reason to celebrate right there.”
Along with running Wayne America and Mikey C Productions he also writes for four different newspapers in the state at different opportunities.
Carnes added that he chose The Table because it’s a great location to have a gathering.
“The Table is a really nice little set-up here that has started up here in the last couple months and we did a story on it this the summer,” said Carnes. “I thought that’d be a great opportunity to get people together here.”
Next month will also mark 10 years since Carnes has moved into his house in Wayne.
The past few years, Wayne America has been doing a “Student of the Week” with the help of Dairy Queen along with a Facebook live broadcast on the Wayne America page where an Athlete of the Week is announced.
