CHAMBER CHAT
Vicksburg-Warren County Chamber of Commerce
December 2014
Director's Report

As I make my preparations to gather with my family and friends this Christmas season, a very special time for me, I reflect on the larger community of Vicksburg-Warren County and how we embrace our fellow citizens throughout the year.  With my dual role and work as Vicksburg's Certified Retirement  Director, I spoke just now with a gentleman in California  who appreciates what Vicksburg has to offer and is considering moving here-not for our physical assets as he will leave sunny California, but for the other "warmth and community" that Vicksburg and Warren County offers people. 

 

As we journey into 2015, may you experience that peace and love in your life, may your business prosper, and may we always work together to improve the "quality of life" for all of our citizens!

 

Your membership sustains us!  Thank you for your continued support!  

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 


Sincerely,
Jane L. Flowers & Staff
