BAY MINETTE, Alabama — The North Baldwin Chamber will celebrate 73 years on Tuesday, Feb. 26 at the John F. Rhodes Civic Center in Bay Minette.
Tickets are on sale now and are $50 per person for Chamber Members and $65 for prospective members. The evening will begin with a social hour, followed by dinner catered by Naman's Catering and a brief program to feature highlights from the past year, a keynote address and our annual awards.
The program will include recognition of several businesses and individuals to include the 2019 Small Business of the Year, Business of the Year, New Business of the Year, Nonprofit Service Award, First Responder Award and the Harry B. Still, Sr. Distinguished Service Award.
"The North Baldwin Chamber has a lot to celebrate this year. 2018 was a wonderful year for the Chamber and the Community," said Ashley Jones Davis, North Baldwin Chamber executive director. "We are looking forward to hosting this year's Annual Meeting and celebrating with our members and committing to continuing the work we do for them and the communities we serve."
Chamber members will hear from keynote speaker for the evening, Devyn S. Keith. On Nov. 7, 2016, Keith became the youngest elected official in the history of Huntsville after defeating a 28-year incumbent. Keith is a Huntsville native who, while afforded many opportunities to pursue a career in Boston or D.C., after completing graduate studies at the University of Massachusetts, chose to return home to North Huntsville, where he could help in the continued efforts to build up a community that helped build him.
In addition to his service as the councilman for District 1 in Huntsville, Keith is the director of the Cap & Gown Project, which seeks to provide transformative opportunities for underrepresented secondary school students in Huntsville who wish to pursue college.
“Join us at the 73rd Annual Meeting and Dinner as we hear from Devyn and learn more about how true community effort and partnership can make a difference,” Davis said.
