Director’s February 2015 Article
It is time once again for the Chamber’s Annual Banquet, and we are very excited about this year’s event. The Banquet will be held March 2, 2015, at the Corey Forum on the campus of Holmes Community College. Doors will open at 6:00 pm, and dinner will be served at 6:30 pm.
This year’s guest speaker is the Honorable Phil Bryant, Governor of the State of Mississippi. Many thanks to Ms. Dolly for securing the Governor as our featured guest. Gov. Bryant wants to talk with us about all of the great things happening in our state and does not intend to discuss politics. There are lots of exciting developments in our great state, and we’re looking forward to hearing about them from the Governor.
In keeping with tradition, Moe Hubbard, Bill Daly, and Mike Knox will be providing dinner music, and we’ll also hear from Encore, the Kirk Academy Show Choir, this year. We’ll also be presenting awards to recognize some of the outstanding members of our community.
We have not raised ticket prices, so they are available again this year for $30 per person. Those wishing to serve as sponsors of the Banquet can purchase a table of 8 for $300. Sponsorship tables and individual tickets are available at the Chamber offices.
Finally, as this will be the last Chamber article I will write, I want to take the opportunity to say thank you. I have very much enjoyed my time as Chamber Director, and I have received the support of the Board of Directors, the Staff, the Committee Chairs, the Membership, and the community as a whole. Although I’ll be assuming a new role, I still intend to be very active with the Chamber and a part of the fabric of the Grenada Area. Please lend your support to Mr. Jory, Virginia, and Nathan as they keep the ship on course until a new Executive Director is hired. Once again, thank you all very much!
