CRESTVIEW — Crestview Manor is the recipient of 39 chairs donated by the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce.
Members voted to donate the chairs to the assisted living facility at a recent meeting, according to the Manor's director, Becky Brice-Nash.
She accepted the chairs from the chamber's interim president and CEO, Tom Moody, and its treasurer, Craig Shaw, Jan. 23 in Crestview.
Brice-Nash said the chairs will be used in the facility's art room and outside its medication room.
"The residents will be comfortable," she said. "It'll be so nice to have some matching chairs."
Moody said, "This is an example of Crestview chamber members giving back to the community. If you'd like to join these types of activities, call us at 682-3212 or visit the website, www.crestviewchamber.com."
Shaw said, "The chamber of commerce is proud and happy to make donations of 39 matching boardroom chairs. It's just part of the community outreach the chamber provides."
After the presentation, Moody and Shaw confirmed the date for the upcoming Triple B festival. The Blackwater Bands & Barbecue Cookoff is 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 24 at the Old Spanish Trail Park, Stillwell Boulevard, Crestview. Last year's Triple B drew a crowd of 10,000, according to Moody.
