Plans in Full Swing for 2nd Annual Jammin’ With the General
It’s been a couple of weeks since my last blog. That may tell you how busy we have been at the Chamber. Ribbon cuttings, a few committee meetings and our February board meeting filled the last two weeks.
Serenity Dental held their grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, February 13. Dr. Teresa Larkins and her staff have a fabulous new dental office, and the addition of that new structure to West Main definitely adds to the neighborhood. I appreciate Dr. Larkins’ investment in this community.
Southern Kitchen on Cedar Street cut the ribbon on their new location on Wednesday, February 19. Michael and LaToya Lewis offer barbecue and southern cooking at its finest. It’s exciting to see this restaurant add to the flavor of Lebanon’s dining community.
Our Tourism Committee met on Tuesday, February 18, and plans are in full swing for the Second Annual Jammin’ With the General. Three consecutive musical masterpieces are planned for the summer on the Public Square in Lebanon. Additional sponsors for the event are being sought, so if you or your business has an interest, please contact the Chamber office. Stay tuned for more on these special events.
Our Education Committee Chair Scott Jasper and I met with another Teacher Grant recipient at Byars Dowdy Elementary on Thursday. Cathy Fraley, a kindergarten teacher, used the funds to purchase three Leappads for her class. The kids love learning on the devices, and we could easily see that was money well invested.
On Monday, February 24 Frank and Patties celebrated a ribbon cutting at the Outlet Village in Lebanon at 2 p.m. The next day Southern Bank of Tennessee held a ribbon cutting at their new full service branch office on West Main Street in Lebanon at 12 noon.
The community is always welcome and encouraged to come out and help us welcome new businesses to the Lebanon/Wilson County Chamber of Commerce.
