Industry Appreciation Day Activities Set

Registration is now underway for the 23rd Annual Industry Appreciation Day, including a golf tournament and dinner, to be held at Goose Pond Colony Resort on Thursday, October 13th at 12:00 noon. Presenting sponsor for the event this year is FNB.

Co-sponsored by the Jackson County Economic Development Authority and the Greater Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, the activities offer an opportunity for representatives of industry and businesses throughout the county to join with elected officials and community leaders for an afternoon of fun, fellowship and good-natured competition. The golf tournament will be a best ball scramble format between four-man teams.

Industry teams will be competing against consistently strong contenders from Maples, WestRock, Polyamide and others. To be included in the Industry Division, all four team players must be employed by the industry they are representing. An open division winner will be named as well. Team prizes will be awarded in each division as well as overall individual prizes including closest to the pin, longest drive and longest putt.

A lake cruise for non-golfers will depart the gas dock at 1:30 p.m. and return at 4:00. The dinner will be served immediately after the tournament between 5:00 and 5:30 p.m. Spaces are still available for all functions. Please call before 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 11th at 256-574-1331 or 256-259-5500 for further details and reservations.
