To the Editor:
“A Taste of Lebanon” the best in the restaurant and catering business. St. Patrick’s Day at the Lebanon/Wilson County Chamber of Commerce was a huge success. To quote a merchant on the Square, “there was a busyness in the downtown district greater than any other time (with the exception of Halloween on the square).”
Approximately 500 people enjoyed the “Taste of Lebanon” the delicious food provided by 36 restaurants and caterers in Lebanon and Wilson county. The weather was perfect. People were stopping by to eat, but they were also visiting shops on the square and enjoying the atmosphere created by the sidewalk café, with green tablecloths and balloons with the St. Patty’s Day theme. I want to personally thank the following participants that provided the delicious food. We heard enthusiastic comments all day, and the event was an overwhelming success because of them.

With all of these fantastic restaurants and caterers in our city, county and community, why would we go out of town to eat? Check out your neighbors give them a try, they support our schools, our non-profit organizations, our youth programs and community activities.
Thanks again from the Chamber to all of the above food participants for bringing positive attention and attendance to our square. All of you did a great job. Thanks to the Chamber members that attended, to our neighbors and friends for joining us. See you next year! Sue Vanatta, President,Lebanon/Wilson CountyChamber of Commerce
