Chamber notes

Tapping into social media: The Largo/Mid-Pinellas Chamber of Commerce will hold a two-session "Business Success through Social Media" workshop series this summer.

The first, a 101 beginner's course, will take place Wednesday, with an intermediate 201 course to follow Aug. 25. Both sessions will run from 7:45 to 9 a.m. at the chamber, 151 Third St. NW, Largo.

Presented by CEA Marketing Group of Clearwater, the programs will educate and demonstrate the strategies and objectives for utilizing social media in today's business climate. In addition to an overview of social media, it will provide hands-on demonstrations in maximizing use on social media sites, including Twitter, Facebook and Linked­in.

    Matt Kuchar plays out of the bunker on the 18th hole and finishes with bogey for 1-under 69. He had a one-shot lead after 13 holes.
