It was a night of appreciation and enjoyment at the Headland Chamber of Commerce Annual Membership Dinner held at The Gathering Place on Thursday, January 23, 2014. The evening began with Hors d’evours Hour and was followed by a delicious dinner. The evening program was a wonderful presentation by Mike Schmitz, Mayor of Dothan.
Attention Chamber Members!
(formerly Look Alive After Five)
Your Chamber is excited to bring you a fun and energetic event where you can promote your business, products and services. We encourage you to take this opportunity to showcase your business. The evening will have a Mardi Gras theme, it is Fat Tuesday after all, and will be filled with live jazz music, games, and door prizes. This year one of those door prizes is a hot air balloon ride from Sky Cruises stationed at Headland’s Municipal Airport. So get creative, think outside the box, and bring your WOW factor. Together, we can show the public all that our ever-growing Headland area has to offer.
We are thankful to Cindy Marshall and her associates who have been so gracious to again donate their venue, The Gathering Place, for this event. This enables everyone to benefit in an elegant atmosphere while advertising at the very small investment of $25 per booth (that covers cleaning fees). Also, this allows an open invitation to the public with no admission fee. Remember, vendor participation in this event is limited to Headland Area Chamber of Commerce members only.
We are advertising and publicizing this event in local media and on line but certainly hope you can also help spread the word through your resources as well. We hope to have a large audience. Booth spaces are limited and premium spaces will go fast. We hope you and your staff will make plans to participate.
Registration for the Miss Headland Pageant will be Sunday, January 19, 2-3pm at the Headland Area Chamber of Commerce office, 105 Cleveland Street. The pageant will be Saturday, March 1 at 7:00 p.m. at the Headland High School Auditorium.
The Annual Headland Christmas Parade was held on Saturday, December 14th from Douglas Park to around the Town Square. Beauty queens, floats, the Headland High School and Abbeville High School bandsfire engines, police cruisers, motorcycle clubs, horses and entries from local businesses as well as organizations made for a glorious display. Mrs. Betty McGriff was the honored Parade Marshall. This event is sponsored by the Headland Chamber of Commerce and the City of Headland.
