Earlier this month, we were honored to be included in the Georgia Quail Hunt, an invitation only event that welcomes both international and stateside business executives to get to know the people and natural beauty of Georgia.
The annual event is hosted by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and brings business and industry leaders to South Georgia to enjoy the beauty of our state. Many industries considering a relocation or expansion want to make sure that the place where they locate their business will also be a good place to live, and this event puts the beauty of charm of our community on display in a unique and special way!
We can't do what we do for Mitchell County without our partners and we love spending this time with them to build relationships and welcome the businesses investing in Georgia. This year, we were thrilled that local industry Hays LTI was invited, and we enjoyed spending time with Ronald Hays, co-owner of the Camilla based business.

Since 1994, guests of the Georgia Quail Hunt have invested over $2.5 billion in Georgia and created more than 10,000 new jobs through corporate relocations or expansions.
Our participation helps market Mitchell and South Georgia in a unique and memorable way, and we are thankful to the Georgia Chamber of Commerce for their amazing event!
