Vidalia Chamber of Commerce Director Jamie Burley said area residents need to come out and hear Jindal speak.

“I think that if the people of the community really care about our state and our economic situation, that it is very important to come and listen to what the governor has to say,” she said.

Burley said the chamber is expecting approximately 125 people, but can accommodate more if needed. Reservations for the governor’s luncheon can be attained by calling 318-336-8223 or by e-mail at
