Holiday Homecoming – Downtown Port Huron 2018

On Wednesday, November 21, Thanksgiving Eve, our region will be hosting a “Holiday Homecoming” event in Downtown Port Huron.  Thanksgiving Eve is traditionally one of the most popular days of the year for former residents to return, gather and socialize at local pubs, restaurants and area hot spots.  The purpose of the Holiday Homecoming event is to potentially recruit those who have left the region to return home to their roots where workforce talent is desperately needed and the region’s low cost of living and quality of life is very desirable.   Job opportunities in the region have never been more plentiful.  It’s time for talented individuals and families to rediscover Port Huron…not the City You Remember…and we are excited to show you why.   “To keep our businesses healthy, strong and in a position for growth, we must recruit more workforce talent to the region,” said Dan Casey, CEO of the Economic Development Alliance.  “We believe that starting with individuals who already have roots in St. Clair County, may be our best opportunity for talent attraction and recruitment.”  Sperry’s Dinnerhouse will serve as the hub of Holiday Homecoming, with a social event planned from 6-8 pm, featuring prizes, appetizers, drinks and the opportunity to scope out hot jobs with local employers.  Activities such as a mini escape room will be hosted in The Underground at Sperry’s as well.  Optional Loft Tours will be open to attendees following the event.  When the event concludes, we encourage everyone to continue to enjoy the rest of their evening at the many local bars and restaurants downtown.    The Blue Water Young Professionals will be the event host, and other participating organizations include: City of Port Huron Downtown Development Authority, Economic Development Alliance of St. Clair County, Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce, Community Foundation of St. Clair County and EBWTV.
