Thank you Greenwood Leflore Hospital employees for all that you do. Your dedication to our hospital and our community will forever be appreciated.

The Chamber’s Community Pride Award is given each year to a person or group of people who have shown exemplary dedication to improving the community in many ways. Past winners have worked tirelessly to promote, beautify, preserve and enable Greenwood to grow into the community that it is today, both visually and behind the scenes.

This year’s winner of the Community Pride award is given to a group of people who work hard every single day not only for the health and well-being of its citizens, but they also step out to help in BIG ways with community events and projects through the Chamber. Without this group of people, many of our Chamber events such as the 300 Oaks Race and Bikes, Blues & Bayous would not be nearly as successful. We are pleased to announce the winner of the 2012 Community Pride Award: Greenwood Leflore Hospital

For many years, Greenwood Leflore Hospital has been providing hundreds of volunteers each year to help support Chamber and community events. Theyare a major sponsor including the Viking Half Marathon, the 300 Oaks Race and, the Bikes, Blues & Bayous cycling event.

For each of these events, hospital volunteers can be seen working as road guards, food servers, greeters, registration workers, floaters and helpers. They spend countless hours working at these events, including getting up very early in the morning, standing for hours at a time, working hard to make our guests and participants feel welcome, and they do it all with a smile!

Hospital volunteers can also be found working at various other community events such as Relay for Life, United Way campaigns, health fairs and MORE.

We are forever indebted to Greenwood Leflore Hospital, its support of our community and the many MANY volunteers that it provides to make our events fun and successful.
