Welcome to the Greater Valley Area!
Midway between Montgomery and Atlanta on the vital I-85 Corridor, the Greater Valley Area is four cities in three counties in two states. Our cities of LaFayette, Lanett and Valley are in Chambers County, Alabama, and West Point is in both Troup and Harris counties in Georgia. And the famed Chattahoochee River runs through it, offering unlimited scenic and recreational attractions. Home to KIA’s first US automotive plant in West Point, our area offers diverse economic and entrepreneurial opportunities, bountiful natural resources and an engaging lifestyle. You’ll never grow tired of exploring the potential!
Ambassadors selling purple bows
The Greater Valley Area will soon take on its annual purple glow as businesses and residents "paint the town purple" with bows in support of the June 13 Relay for Life and the fight against cancer.
Ambassadors of the Greater Valley Area Chamber are currently offering the symbolic poufy purple bows for $10 each. They will deliver them on June 5-6 to provide time for display before the June 13 Relay event, which will be held this year at West Point City Park.
The 10-inch bows, all created by a local florist, are still only $10. They can be displayed at homes or businesses – on the door or attached to a front counter at a business or on a mailbox or sign.
The bows may be pre-ordered through June 3 from any Chamber Ambassador or by contacting the Chamber, 334.642.1411 or email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Bows may also be purchased at the Chamber office, 2102 South Broad Ave., Lanett.
Bows may be paid for in advance or at time of delivery. All checks should be made to the American Cancer Society and not to the Chamber of Commerce.
Proceeds from the bow sales will go the Chamber’s Jr. Ambassadors Relay team for contributing to Relay on June 13. The team will be out in force maintaining a booth at at the event.
The Jr. Ambassadors worked to build a good contribution to Relay through a very successful Celebrity Bake Sale this Spring. Proceeds from the bow sales will be added to complete the contribution.
These bows are symbolic of many people pulling together in the fight against cancer; they represent a lot of strength and determination. Chamber Ambassadors encourage everyone to display one so that businesses and residents can indeed paint the town purple and carry the fight forward.
