The Greater Ardmore Chamber was awarded a grant of $2,600 from the Alabama Tourism Department thanks to the support of Representative Andy Whitt.

The funds will be used to help cover expenses with the annual Crape Myrtle Festival. The festival is scheduled for August 20th from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at John Barnes Park in Ardmore.

This annual event brings in visitors to Ardmore and showcases what the community has to offer.

Hundreds of craft, direct sale, informational, and food vendors will gather at the park from northern Alabama and southern Tennessee.

Greater Ardmore Chamber Director Yolandia Eubanks is appreciative of these funds, and said the entire chamber board would like to say a special thanks to Rep. Whitt for his support and this grant.
