                Working together as a team!

Special Thanks  
to everyone who helped make our Bus Tour 
a huge success! 


The Montgomery Economic Development corporation joined forces with the Village and the real estate community to show case the community.  


Everyone had a role, from gathering clients and/or parcels of property, to the early morning well wishes from Village President and State Representative, Kay Hatcher. The group toured a series of commercial properties and some vacant land. The bus ride through out the community was also well received. A break was also planned at the AmericInn Lodges & Suites. The event ended with a nice lunch at Gray's Mill.  


Perfect, Perfect, Perfect, that was the common thread I heard all afternoon. Perfect timing, perfect options, perfect crowd, just perfect all the way around! Perfect is good! 


In my book, that is a "Home Run" so again thanks to all who took part in the event. Be sure to read the press release. 


Jeff welcomes everyone as they get on the bus....  
Pictured above is Carrie Herr, (far left) from AmericInn Lodge & Suites, and Village Administrator, Jeff Zoephal, (far right) greeting the guests who began to get onto the bus after the tour of the corner building on Mill and River street, which has since sold.

Special thanks to Brian Dolan, from Dolan & Murphy, Chair of the BCEC committee for helping us move forward with the tour.    

Thanks Brian!   


            Congratulations to Coffman GMC on their new state-of-the art facility!
