30th Annual Crape Myrtle Festival Recap & Thank You!

Thank you, Ardmore 

We had a record number of vendors, purchases, and attendees at our 30th annual Crape Myrtle Festival.  We had wonderful weather, and the support from the Ardmore community was amazing.  I want to thank Mayor Mike Magnusson and the Ardmore City Council for allowing us to use the park and Jerry (Bubba) Toone for his hard work at the park before and during the festival.  They did an outstanding job ensuring the park was equipped with everything needed for the festival.  I also want to thank our sponsors B.T.’s Towing, Truck and Tire Repair, Fowler’s Auction and Real Estate, Elk River Nursing and Health Center, RedHawk Pest Control, City of Ardmore (TN), Blake Williams Communications, McDonald’s of Ardmore, Tennessee College of Applied Technology-Pulaski, Redstone Federal Credit Union, Athens-Limestone Chamber of Commerce, and Limestone County Economic Development Association.  Thank you to Representative Andy Whitt for helping secure a tourism grant for the Chamber.  I also want to thank Chamber board members – Ben Whitt, Beverly Browning, Bill Norman, Trent Heard, and Ronny Cornelison for their help before, during, and after the festival and Isabella Saint with Bellasaint Photography for taking some amazing photos.  Limestone County’s RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) volunteers were also a huge help.  We heard great music from Houston Ridge Bluegrass Band and Juice party band.   

For those of you that are not aware, the Crape Myrtle Festival is one of the Chamber’s largest fundraisers.  We use the funds to help support programs like Neighborhood Bridges-Ardmore, Ardmore’s Spring Clean-Up, Tinsel Trail, support our Chamber members by keeping them up to date on State mandates and help them advertise on social media outlets.  We have a wonderful community, and I am truly blessed to be a part of it.  If you are interested in being part of The Greater Ardmore Chamber as a Community Member or Business Member, please do not hesitate to contact the office.   

Thank you, Yolandia Eubanks (yeubanks@greaterardmorechamber.com
