dhp 300HENDERSON, KY (2/29/12) – In 2011 Independence Bank invested four million dollars in a downtown building project much to the appeal of the Downtown Henderson Project (DHP).
 
Chris Black, the keynote speaker of today’s DHP awards breakfast ceremony, honored Independence bank president Jim Davis with the investment and commercial design award. Mr. Black also adorned Independence bank with a new DHP award, the extraordinary event award. This is an excerpt of the announcement for the Independence Bank opening event ceremony that won them the extraordinary event award.
 
“Independence Bank will be presenting “Sounds of Independence” with a free outdoor concert by country music artists Martina McBride and Jack Ingram on Saturday, October 1, 2011. The concert will be held at their newest signature location – Liberty Square, 76 Green Street in Henderson from 6 to 9 p.m. followed by a grand finale fireworks display.”
 
“The concert stage will be located in the parking lot of the bank’s new building, facing east toward Center Street. Green Street will be blocked off from Washington to Second Street beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday, October 1st to allow for festival seating for the concert. Nashville promoters expect as many as 20,000 people to attend the concert. This will be a similar celebration to the opening of the three-story replica of Independence Square in Owensboro in July, 2004.”
 
“Jim Davis, President said, “Independence Bank is proud of the communities it serves and this is our way of saying thank you to Henderson for its support.”
 
An estimated 1500-20000 people arrived at the event and six blocks of Henderson city roads were closed, even part of highway 60 was shut down for the event.
