What is McHenrys Next?

Run by the McHenry Area Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by some amazing businesses (listed below), McHenry's NEXT is able to bring a fun, relaxed environment that is perfect for someone looking to make friends, talk business, become a referral and so much more!

If you want to know more about this group, follow them on facebook & instagram or ask us how to be added to their group emails!

Thank you to this years sponsors: Buss Ford Lincoln, Northwestern Medicine, CannaBliss CBD Shop, Reeses Barkery & Pawtique, Fantasy Factory - McHenry IL, Community Home Inspections and jh Events and Flowers
