Jackson Chamber Hosts Annual Meeting and Banquet

At Friday evening’s gala annual meeting and banquet, a huge assembly of Chamber members and supporters assembled to give recognition and awards to deserving members of our community, to officially install the incoming Chairman, and to have a good time.
The evening began with a forty five minute “meet and mingle” period with free refreshments provided by Waste Management, and beautiful background piano music provided by the talented Anita Pizza. After welcoming remarks by Chairwoman Dr. Sara Clemmons and the invocation, the guests enjoyed a delicious meal. Then John Milton introduced the featured speaker, Mark Hinson.
Mark Hinson is a Marianna native who now resides in Tallahassee and writes as a humorist columnist for the Tallahassee Democrat. Many of the stories he relates in his columns are based on his childhood experiences growing up as part of the Richard Hinson family in Marianna. As part of his presentation he repeated some of his more notable stories.
