On Tuesday, Jan. 16, at 5 p.m., members of the Madison Shrine Club joined Madison County Chamber of Commerce members and multiple guests at the local Shrine Club, located at 353 NE Shrine Club Rd., in Madison.
Citizens and business owners and employees alike were able to meet local Shriners and hear about what they are doing in support of families in need of medical attention, which is provided by the Shriners Hospital for Children. The Madison Shrine Club was chartered in1947, and is under the jurisdiction of the Marzuq Shrine of Tallahassee. Shriners, not just in Madison but around the world, are committed to helping crippled children.
During the Business After Hours, the Shriners announced the annual golf tournament that will raise money for the Madison Shrine Club transportation fund. The event will be held on the last weekend in April. Toward the end of the evening, there were multiple door prizes given away, along with a grand prize of smoked sausage, donated by Driggers and Sons Custom Slaughter, in Jasper. Emerald G. Parsons took home the grand prize.
The Business After Hours mixers have become social and networking events for businesses and others alike in Madison County, offered in a casual, comfortable atmosphere. The opportunity for members of the community to form relationships, which strengthen community and friendship bonds, is incredible.
The next Business After Hours will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 20, at The Main Street Playhouse, located at 172 SW Range Ave., in Madison.
