F is for FOOD

Foodie February 

For year’s Valentine’s Day has “owned” February, but you might be surprised to learn that the F in February could actually stand for many different kinds of food! Don’t let one day of pink candy hearts constrain your celebration! There are six month-long food holidays in February. In fact, each day of the month is a day to celebrate a different type of food!

Keep an Eagle Eye open at Lake Guntersville State Park

Happy Birthday, Marshall County!

Happy Birthday, Marshall County!

This week we have a special birthday to celebrate. Our very own county turned 182 years young on January 9. Present-day Marshall County was created in 1836 by an act of the Alabama Legislature. The land was acquired in an 1835 treaty with the Cherokee and named in honor of Chief Justice of the United States, John Marshall, who served during the time of the land purchase.

A Blog on Mentoring

Mentoring is one of the greatest things you can do for yourself and your organization.  Having been the beneficiary of an outstanding mentor, I understand and value the impact a professional mentor can have on a career.  Seventeen years ago, I began my career as a chamber of commerce executive.  I was focused on building a strong organization and establishing myself as a leader in the community.

It’s a very exciting time in a couple’s life and Marshall County has plenty of breathtaking venues for that perfect wedding day.
