03/21/2014 – Guided Walking Tours of Albany Historic District Offered Each Saturday in April

leave a comment »

Decatur, Ala. – The Decatur-Morgan County Convention and Visitors Bureau announces the return of free, guided walking tours each Saturday in the month of April. Residents and visitors are invited to take part in a casual stroll through Albany Historic District and learn about the architecture and history of this charming neighborhood.

Scheduled for April 5, 12, 19, and 26, the one-hour walking tour begins at 10 a.m. at the Rose Garden in Delano Park. Knowledgeable guides will escort participants through the Albany Historic District where they will share the history of the neighborhood, architectural styles of the homes, some of which date back to the late 1880s, and entertaining accounts of Decatur’s storied past. The tour features a different route, theme, and tour guide each Saturday.

April 5 – New Decatur/Albany Historic Neighborhood tour led by Lindy Ashwander, Executive Director of the historic Princess Theatre and resident of Albany Neighborhood.

April 12 – Architecture of Albany tour led by local architect and Albany resident Scott Schoel of Schoel Architecture.

April 19 – Albany and the Victorian Era tour led by Albany resident Carol Puckett.

April 26 – Tour of the Rose Garden and Delano Park led by Barbara Kelly, Albany resident and supporter of the Friends of Delano. This tour will also offer a special tribute to celebrate 2014 as being the Year of Alabama Parks, a yearlong marketing campaign of the Alabama Tourism Department, and will serve as a kick-off for National Travel and Tourism Month, which gets underway May 1.

Reservations are not required and tours are held rain or shine.

Decatur’s guided walking tours are part of the April Walking Tours coordinated by the Alabama Tourism Department. Decatur is one of 33 towns across the state participating in the annual event. “Alabama is the only state in the nation to hold statewide, simultaneous walking tours. These walking tours are a great way to get out and enjoy the spring weather and find out about the history of our state. We have done more than 1,800 walking tours since the beginning of the program eleven years ago and they keep increasing in popularity every year,” said Brian Jones of the Alabama Tourism Department.

For more information, call the Decatur-Morgan County Convention and Visitors Bureau at 256.350.2028 or 800.524.6181.

03/18/2014 – Scam Alert from Hamilton Area Chamber of Commerce

leave a comment »

SCAM ALERT!

We have just been notified by one of our board members she received a solicitation phone call at her office wanting her business to purchase advertising for the HHS band. Upon questioning by our board member, the lady hung up on her. This was very similar to a situation last week regarding solicitation of ads for the football team.

We have just spoken with band director Matthew Cicero, and he says the HHS band does NOT have any type of ad fundraising ongoing.

Please be aware of these situations and verify with our schools the authenticity of anyone who is attempting to solicit funds, especially if it is an individual or company that you are not familiar with.

On March 6th, 2014 THE HAMILTON, AL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE HOSTED A “THINK TANK” MEETING ON MUNSINGWEAR

Unless we work to save it, the Munsingwear / Hollywood Vasserette Building, in Hamilton, Alabama, will be torn down. The vote, as I understand it will be taken by the mayor and city council on April 11th, 2014 (a regularly scheduled meeting).

On March 6th, 2014, a “THINK TANK” was held. Organizers encouraged interested persons to attend. Approximately 30 – 35 people came.

The purpose of the meeting was to have open discussions on the possible uses of a renovated Munsingwear building or other civic center site in the Hamilton area or to hear from the people who were in favor of destroying the building.

With (1) one exception, the people at the meeting were overwhelmingly in favor of saving the building; even volunteering to donate money and their time to cleanup and repurpose the huge ‘Brick & Mortar’ building. One person, in the gathering of thirty or more people gathered that evening, said he thought that the building had ‘outlived it’s usefulness!’

Mr. Gene Sanderson stood to speak passionately in favor of putting a roof on the building and rehabbing it in stages. Several others followed, in agreement with Mr. Sanderson’s ideas, and with many more of their own.

The following pictures were taken after the meeting was dismissed. We did not film the meeting in order for everyone to speak freely and openly about their feelings without any reservations.

03/06/2014 – Reminder – Munsingwear Think Tank meeting tonight – 6:00 PM!

leave a comment »

CHAMBER TO HOST “THINK TANK” MEETING ON MUNSINGWEAR

The Hamilton Area Chamber of Commerce will host a “think tank” meeting on Thursday, March 6, at 6 p.m., at the combined offices of the Chamber and the Northwest Alabama Arts Council, located at 190 Military Street South in downtown Hamilton.

Organizers encourage anyone who is interested in a civic center-type facility to attend. The purpose of the meeting is to have open discussions on the possible uses of a renovated Munsingwear building or other civic center site in the Hamilton area.

Of specific interest to the Chamber are those people and groups in the community who can assist in bringing conferences, conventions, activities, and meetings to the facility. Special invitations are extended to area civic, nonprofit, and church leaders who often have the opportunity to host or bid on such events. Area business leaders are asked to send representatives to share their ideas and to provide insight as to how such a complex would enhance their business and provide new opportunities for them.

Additionally, those with general ideas of how the potential rehabilitation of space within the Munsingwear facility could best be utilized are encouraged to attend. “We’ve heard everything from smaller sized rooms to host baby showers and bridal showers to a senior center with a rehabilitation pool, museums, storm shelter, exhibition space, to a full blown concert hall,” said board president Marla Minter. These are the types of ideas we want to get from our community members, and we want them to help us understand what is most needed and most wanted in a facility of this type.

The “think tank” meeting will not be limited to the facility portion of Munsingwear as discussions will be held on the usage of the 40-plus acres on the south side of the building. Suggestions briefly mentioned to the Chamber have included ball fields, a river walk, canoe run, splash pad, and zip lines.

“With the Hamilton mayor and city council weighing this subject in the next few weeks, we wanted to take the opportunity to hear from the public and see if we could help narrow down what our needs truly are. While there are many items on a proposed civic center wish list, it really boils down to balancing what the needs of the community are and what it will also be financially feasible to do. We hope this will allow us to get some really good, solid ideas that the mayor and council can think about as they make these decisions going forward,” Minter said.

Minter says the mayor and council will be invited to attend and listen to the ideas and suggestions given at the meeting. A general report will be shared with the mayor and council with the results of the group’s discussions.

Those who will not be able to attend but would like to share their ideas are encouraged to do so by calling the Chamber office at (205) 921-7786, or via email to chamber@hamiltonchamberofcommerce.org.
