Join young professionals for boil

Published 12:08 am Monday, April 20, 2009

Last year the Natchez Young Professionals were started out of an effort by the Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce to help facilitate networking and camaraderie among the growing number of young professionals who call Natchez home.

Through the efforts of many, this organization has grown to over 150 members who meet monthly and increasingly are becoming more involved in the community in which they reside. The group hopes to serve as an organization that brings together a wide range of young professionals ranging from educators to business people.

It is the hope of the Natchez Young Professionals that through our efforts we can both promote Natchez as well as recruit other young professionals to our area. We are very excited about the growing number of young professionals who call Natchez home, and we are looking forward to great successes that will come from these young men and women.

This year we will host the first Boiling on the Bluff Crawfish Boil from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday on the bluff in front of Bowie’s Tavern.

We would like to invite all of Natchez out for food, music and fellowship. The entertainment will be provided by Mon Cla Cajun Band. Tickets include all you can eat crawfish and all you can drink for $25 each. T-shirts are also available for $15.

You can buy tickets at the door or in advance. Tickets are available at the Chamber of Commerce office on Main Street as well as at the gate the day of the event. This event is not just for Young Professionals, so we encourage everyone to come out and enjoy a good time and great crawfish!

Jack Byrne is chairman-elect of the Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce.
