A packed Roberta Cranmer Dining Center was the site of the Annual Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce Banquet, tonight, Tuesday, April 21, 2009, with President Donna Stotts presiding.
The principal speaker for the evening was the honorable Justice Daniel J. Venters, Kentucky Supreme Court Third Supreme Court District, who was introduced by District Judge Mike Loy of Columbia, KY.
Special presentations were made by Mayor Pat Bell of the City of Columbia, and Ann Melton, Adair County Judge Executive.
An moving invocation through song, "Hear Our Praises," was given by Amy Thompson, who said, afterward, that the decision to go with "Hear Our Praises" was a close one, between it and "The Lord's Prayer," but opted for the Australian hillsong over the more familiar alternative.
Greetings on behalf of Lindsey Wilson College was given by Dr. Dean Adams, Vice President for Student Services and Enrollment Management.
