Marketing director for the Brookhaven-Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce Kay Burton (not pictured), who was also at the capitol event, said the special day is designed to promote Brookhaven as a great place to call home and a potential site for industry. “We are there also to keep the interests of Lincoln County and Brookhaven, or even southwest Mississippi – we go up there for good will, but we also leave a good impression of our town and our area, and leave an impression on the legislators of what is important to the people in our community.” (Please see related photos on page 3.)
