February 1-- Vidalia insurance man Brian Bishop chaired the Toombs-Montgomery Chamber of Commerce ten years ago and Thursday night he assumed the role again.
Outgoing Chairperson Ginger Morris passes the Chamber Board's gavel to Bishop after receiving a plaque of appreciation for her service to the chamber in 2017.
"We're always trying news ideas and we're trying to do things to keep current and on the cutting edge to keep our members engaged and to benefit our members," Bishop said.
The Chamber's annual meeting attracted a large crowd to the Vidalia Community Center, "That says a lot about our community. I hear it everywhere I go. Anyone who have ever moved into our community will tell you there's no other place like this, they are so glad they are here and they wouldn't leave," Bishop observed.
The two chamber leaders presented this year's past Chairman's Award to John Koon of Vidalia Communications Corporation who led the chamber in 2016 and is serving as an advisor this year to Chairman Bishop.
