Foley - For more than forty years the South Baldwin Chamber of Commerce has celebrated the spirit of the Free Enterprise system. The Walton M. Vines Free Enterprise Person of the Year is one of South Baldwin’s most coveted awards.
The winner will be honored during the 43rd Annual Free Enterprise Person of the Year Luncheon on Sept. 20 at the Foley Civic Center. The event is attended by more than one hundred of the area’s top business leaders and community members. Tickets can be purchased online at www.southbaldwinchamber.com/free-enterprise. The luncheon features a full catered lunch and speeches from last year’s winner, Denson Freeman, along with the newly honored Person of the Year.
The event has a rich history in Foley; some past winners of the award include Tommy Lee, Boyd Little, Frances Holk-Jones, Gary Hellmich, Glen W. Moyer, R.C. Craft, and Foley Mayor John Koniar. Winning the award can be a very special memory.
“It was very humbling to me to be named the Free Enterprise Person of The Year knowing all the previous honorees who had worked so very hard to shape our area into what it is today: one of the best places to live in the country,” shared 2015 winner Boyd Little.
