Director’s July 2014 Article
Greetings from YOUR Chamber of Commerce! We’ve been on a bit of a break from these pages, but we have been no less busy. We’ve been proud to assist with two recent Ribbon Cuttings and to present our monthly Star Awards to some awesome Grenada Area businesses. As also detailed in separate articles, the Retail and Leadership Committees have been busy, too.

Among the most active of our committees as of late has been the Senior Ambassadors. On Friday, May 16th, the Senior Ambassadors hosted a Game Night to welcome new residents to the area and allow them to meet each other and those of us who’ve been around a while. Those in attendance had a great time of food, fellowship, and fun. In June, on Friday the 27th, the Senior Ambassadors held a well-attended Mini-Health Fair. Willie and Mildrette White taught us some simple exercises that can be done at home, and Larcerner Williams treated us to some tasty and healthful fruit smoothies. This group also still serves as an unofficial Welcome Wagon to newcomers, so let us know if you are aware of new residents, and we will deliver a Welcome Kit to them!

Summer has certainly arrived in the Lake City, and that means festival season. We hope everyone enjoyed Thunder on Water and that you are all looking forward to Balloons Over Grenada, held on August 22 and 23 this year. And, don’t forget that now is the time to plan for the Downtown Jubilee on September 20 on our historic Downtown Square. Purveyors of food, arts, and crafts are already scheduled, and as always, there’ll be a car, truck, and bike show, entertainment, tours of the swamp and downtown museums, and fun activities for the youngsters. If you’d like to have your own booth at the Jubilee, please contact the Chamber at 226-2571. The deadline is September 5th, but spaces are filling up quickly this year. Hope to see you there!
