In looking back over his past year as Sweetwater Chamber of Commerce President, Rodney Foster has come to realize that life truly is sweet in Sweetwater.
In contrast to the national economy, Foster says that Sweetwater has been a fortunate community in which to live, with a varied economic foundation that enables the city to thrive.
"A diverse economic base combined with our greatest attribute--great people, allows our community to enjoy a great reputation for raising a family," said Foster.
