2016 was quite the year for the Vestavia Hills Chamber of Commerce… and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
From the very beginning of 2016, our Chamber calendar was packed with luncheons, ribbon cuttings, networking events, Vestavia Hills Living planning and much more. Below, you’ll find a quick peak at some of our favorite events from 2016… We hope to see you at some in 2017!
In April, we held our 26th annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast where Elizabeth “Liz” Huntley shared her testimony of perseverance and tenacity to a crowd of over 450 attendees. After the breakfast, Huntley sold and autographed her book, More Than a Bird, and donated a portion of the book’s proceeds to the Alabama School Readiness Alliance and Children’s Village of Birmingham.
Shortly after Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast came one of our oldest and favorite events- the I Love America Summer Celebration held on June 30th. We had a record number of attendees come to Wald Park to enjoy a fun-filled evening of free swim, children’s activities, inflatables, games, a business expo, a concert of patriotic tunes performed by the Shades Mountain Baptist Orchestra AND a viewing of “Minions.”
