Director’s April 2014 Article
It’s that time! The 2014 Grenada Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet is this month, April 24th, at the Holmes Community College Corey Forum. Doors will open at 6 pm, and the program will begin at 6:30 pm. We want to thank the Sponsors who are already signed up for this year’s banquet. They include the City of Grenada, the County Board of Supervisors, Chamber Premier Investors – Luvata, Regions Bank, and The University of Mississippi Medical Center-Grenada and our Chamber Principal Investors – ADP, Cable One, and Marascalco Sav-Mor Drugs. Additionally, The Grenada Star, Holmes Community College, The Grenada Tourism Commission, Self Twins Garage, Sims Metal Management, Liberty Finance, Rose Business Equipment, Chancery Clerk Johnny Hayward, Dr. Thomas Holden, Resolute Forest Products, Edward Jones, and Church’s Chicken are Sponsors thus far this year. Please contact the Chamber office if you’d like to become a Sponsor by purchasing a table of 8 for $300. Individual tickets are $30 each and can also be purchased by contacting the Chamber.

The Grenada School District will be well represented this year with the National Anthem sung by members of Visions, the Presentation of Colors by the ROTC Color Guard, and entertainment provided by the GHS Jazz Band. We are so fortunate to have such a fine school system, and we appreciate Dr. Daigneault and all the staff and faculty for their support of the Chamber. The invocation will be offered by Bro. John Goldwater of Christ Community Church, and the Pledge of Allegiance will be led by new Chief of Police Ben Williams. In keeping with a wonderful tradition, music during dinner will be provided by Jazz Magic, the fantastic quartet of Moe Hubbard, Tommy Christopher, Mike Cox, and Bill Daly.

I would be remiss if I didn’t remind you that our guest speaker this year will be Dr. LouAnn Woodward of UMMC, where she serves as Associate Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, Vice Dean of the School of Medicine, and Professor of Emergency Medicine. Dr. Woodward is a native of the Grenada area who received her undergraduate degree from Mississippi State University and her doctorate from the University of Mississippi Medical Center. We are so proud to have Mr. David Putt and UMMC-Grenada as a new part of our community, and we are anxious to hear the address from Dr. Woodward.

We encourage all Chamber Members to attend this great annual event. If you are not a Chamber Member, the Annual Banquet would be a great time to see what we’re all about. President of the Board of Directors of the Grenada Area Chamber of Commerce Dolly Marascalco will be reviewing the work of the Chamber over the past year and presenting some very special awards to some of the area’s finest citizens. On behalf of the Chamber’s Board of Directors and Chamber Staff Virginia Fulton and Viola Ratliff, I cordially invite you to celebrate another year of Chamber efforts for the Grenada area community!
