30th Annual Pride of Pennyrile Industry Appreciation Event

​Despite the weather, participants enjoyed the 30th Annual Pride of the Pennyrile Industry Appreciation Event on Thursday, September 27, 2018! Over 35 companies were represented from the nine counties we serve that provide approximately 3,000 jobs for the people in our communities.

Commissioner Donnie Holland, KY State4 Park Systems, welcomed everyone as the event kicked off with a delicious lunch provided by Lake Barkley State Resort Park. During dinner, emcee Lee Conrad, Higgins Insurance, expressed appreciation to those businesses and industries who make an investment and significant impact on our economy through their employment, payroll, and purchased goods/services in the Pennyrile region.

PADD began organizing this event in 1988 in collaboration with local economic development professionals, volunteers and community representatives. Thanks to Lake Barkley State Resort Park, those businesses who generously donated door prizes, and many thanks to the phenomenal support of our sponsors
