Ribbon Cuttings Held for New Members

Another packed week for our Chamber is a wrap!

We celebrated three ribbon cuttings and open house events on Thursday, January 30. The activities started with a ribbon cutting at Pro Equities on East Main at noon and ended with two ribbon cuttings back-to-back at Premier Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine at 4:30 and Dr. Nancy Barrett of Wilson Surgical Associates at 5:30 – both located just off South Hartman Drive on Physicians Way in Lebanon.

Earlier in the week I had the pleasure of speaking at the Kiwanis Club of Lebanon (Monday) and the Noon Rotary Club (Tuesday) about our upcoming Chamber year.  These two fine civic organizations do a great deal for our community. The recent (2013) combining of our youth baseball leagues within the two clubs set a great example of what can happen when two separate organizations, both working for the good of the citizens of Lebanon and Wilson County, come together, check egos at the door and produce a product that is second to none in the mid-state. Lebanon Youth Baseball serves over 600 kids in the Lebanon area who want to play youth baseball. They charge zero to play, and it has been that way for 60-plus years.

We held our second Chamber of Commerce Past-Chair/Presidents Luncheon on Wednesday, January 29 at the Chamber Board Room. We had a great meeting and got some great insight from these fine ladies and gentlemen. Those attending included Ed Callis, Paul Stumb, Paul Jewell, Chris Crowell, Max Smith, Don McDougle, Bob Vanhoosier, Randall Clemons, Richard Macon, Don Simpson, Eric Thompson, Barry Tatum, Ken Caldwell, Becky Jennings and Pat Bone. Chris Crowell chairs that committee.

The Lebanon/Wilson County Chamber will be honoring all the past chairpersons at the upcoming annual Membership Banquet and Awards Ceremony next Thursday, February 6 at Lebanon’s newly renovated Capital Theater. This event is probably sold out by the time this blog hits the website, but call the Chamber office to see if any seats are left.

We have another busy week and month ahead of us in February, stay tuned for more and check back with us next Friday for a new blog from your Chairman.
