What’s New and Exciting… The CHAMBER BANQUET did not disappoint. It met all expectations we have been anticipating for an incredible evening together. It was a night we all left with our chests swollen with Barnesville pride. Keynote speaker, Marcia Harp opened with the song, “I BELIEVE” and it was really a perfect emphasis of why the evening was such a success. We all BELIEVE in Barnesville, we all BELIEVE in everything Barnesville has to offer, and we certainly BELIEVE we have something very special. The Congressman further strengthened these thoughts as he reminded us all how important Ohioans have been throughout the course of history. He emphasized how pivotal this is going to be as we enter a new level of economic activity. Our local historical legacy was set by the Bradfields, the Barnes and the Watts over a century ago. Their vision and leadership is part of the reason Barnesville is what it is today. The banquet honored new names for the Barnesville history books. Dr. Souri was given the prestigious “Lifetime Achievement Award', Tim McKelvey was honored for his four decades of “Community Service”, and Dave & Jeannette Hissom were surprised with their very-well-deserved “Citizens of the Year” award. Each of their acceptance speeches inspired us all to become greater. The many standing ovations were the exclamation point on the evening giving testimony to the inspiration given to all of us by the award recipients....all part of the reason we all BELIEVE.
