State Of The Community Breakfast

Things in Hopkinsville and Oak Grove are improving daily, and employment opportunities are increasing now and for the foreseeable future. That was the update given by the Mayors of both communities Tuesday morning during the Christian County Chamber of Commerce's State of the Community Eye Opener breakfast.

Oak Grove Mayor Dan Potter says his community is looking at a number of new retail opportunities.


Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp says the city is continuing to grow, both financially and in the employment sector. Kemp also pointed out a significant drop in burglaries and other crimes. Mayor Kemp was especially optimistic about the great prospects for Hopkinsville.

Also spotlighted during the morning, was Christian County Cares 2015, which is a collaboration between community partners seeking to draw Christian County together through educational and quality of life opportunities. Yasmin Ausenbaugh, director for Christian County Cares, discussed the goals of her organization.

During the breakfast, Griffin Moore, of Griffin's Studio, was presented the Quality Service Award from the Christian County Chamber of Commerce. The sponsor for Tuesday's State of the Community breakfast was sponsored by Heritage Bank.
