Sue Stivers announces retirement number 3, or 4

By Linda Waggener

The Columbia-Adair County Tourism Commission Board of Directors met Tuesday evening, February 25, 2020.

Discussion centered around upcoming fishing tournaments in April and October, and the agenda included the announcement of the retirement of Sue Stivers who has been the leader of the Tourism Commission since it was organized. She has a lifetime of service to her credit and this will mark her third - or fourth - retirement.

She opened the opportunity for nominations for a new chair person. After discussion, one person volunteered and board members chose to consider officers and vote at next months meeting March 17, 2020 at 6:30pmCT at the Chamber Of Commerce building, 201 Burkesville Street.

She said that she would be very happy to work with the all officers but felt it was time to have a new chair.

Fishing tournaments will draw fisherman to Holmes Bend Marina on Green River lake starting in April with the kids tournament during the two days of activities on the lake. The April tournament will take place on the 18th and 20th. This is an annual event enjoyed by many. Then in October, there will be four days of activity expected to bring over 200 fishermen to Green River Lake for the Crappy USA Classic Fishing Tournament.

Businesses will want to think about promotions for families of fisherman who will likely visit Columbia and surrounding areas during both tournaments.

Present at the meeting were Sue Stivers, David Butler, Pam Hancock, Caleb Irvin, Amy Mitchum, Danny Reeves and Marla Shelley.
