for them to move forward with plans for a much needed Conference Center in Madison County.

members were in attendance and stood in support of the request.Testimonials were given for this needed facility by Wesley Goings (C Spire), Mark Garriga
(Butler Snow), Rodney Grogan (MMC), and Mary Beth Wilkinson ( Ridgeland Tourism).
