For the Chamber’s August Spotlight selection, Micki Salter pulled number 135 out of the bowl at the Madison County Chamber of Commerce, the number that corresponded to Chamber Member Nestle Waters. So, Tuesday afternoon, August 2, Chamber Director Cindy Vees was on her way to the Nestle Waters bottling plant to present the August Member Spotlight of the Month.
Michael Hyman was on hand to receive the award, a congratulatory green plant in a wicker basket from Madison Florist, an official certificate to mark the occasion, and two free passes to the RATT Pact’s next production, “Rapunzel.”
Additionally, Hyman received two large signs stating that Nestle is the Spotlight Award winner, to display outside the business for the entire month of August. He placed one just outside the facility’s front door, and the other near the plant’s turnoff from SR 6 on her way back to town.
In explaining the selection process, Vees said that she wanted it to be completely random, rather than based on any specific criteria, so that any member, whether a large company or a small business owned by a single individual could be featured in the spotlight each month.
