COLUMBIA CITY — A group of nonprofit agencies, companies and service providers will gather together at Indian Springs Middle School for the Whitley County Chamber of Commerce’s annual expo, March 15 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Last year, the event drew in more that 1,500 visitors, and Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Doug Brown is anticipating that number to grow.
