With hosting from Wal-Mart’s Store Manager, Sandi Brooks, the approximately 200 locals and Wal-Mart employees in attendance watched as members of Hopkins County Central High School and Madisonville North Hopkins High School offered singing, cheerleading, and ROTC presentations. In addition, Brooks presented several local groups with grants on Wal-Mart’s behalf, which totaled in at $5,000 overall. Among the honored groups, businesses, and organizations/fundraisers, were the Western Kentucky Veteran’s Center, the Salvation Army, Covenant Community’s Food Bank, the Christian Food Bank of Hopkins County, the Marine Corp’s Toys for Tots program, the Greater Lighthouse Pentecostal Church, the Nortonville Food Bank’s Hope 2 All Program, WTTL’s  Toy Drive, and the Madisonville Police Department. 

Following the presentations, Brooks called up employees that have been with Wal-Mart for 20 or more years to help with the official ribbon cutting ceremony. Hopkins County-Madisonville Chamber of Commerce President, Harriett Whittaker, handed over the official ribbon cutting scissors around 9am, and the ribbon was cut to the applause of the onlookers and employees alike.
