On March 8, 2016 members of Leadership Gilmer and the Gilmer Chamber Board of Directors andAmbassadors traveled to the state capitol in recognition of Gilmer Apple Day at the Capitol. The group delivered apple cider donuts from Our Daily Bread and fried apple pies and cider from R & A Orchards for the state leaders to enjoy. The group met the Governor, visited the house gallery where they were recognized, then enjoyed lunch with Speaker of the House David Ralston and Senator Steve Gooch, and were given a tour of the capitol.
During the lunch with Speaker Ralston and Senator Gooch, the group was able to ask questions about house bills, the budget, healthcare, and other key subjects that affect Gilmer County. Speaker Ralston also presented the Gilmer Chamber with the official proclamation for Gilmer Apple Day.
The Gilmer Chamber would like to thank all of our leaders for the recognition and their time meeting with our members.
