Posted by: JustinFreeman on Thursday, January 17, 2019

The Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce cordially invites you to attend the 97th Annual Celebration of Business and Community February 2 at the John Q. Hammons Convention Center from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. We will celebrate Dick Trammel’s life achievements, contributions to our community and well-deserved retirement.

The four Presenting Sponsors for the Celebration will be Walmart, Hunt Ventures, Sam's Furniture and Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas. The Chamber would like to thank them for their support of Mr. Trammel and our community.

From its humble beginnings as a small discount retailer in Rogers, Walmart has opened thousands of stores in the U.S. and expanded internationally. Through innovation, it is creating a seamless experience to let customers shop anytime and anywhere online, through mobile devices and in stores. The company is creating opportunities and bringing value to customers and communities around the globe. Walmart operates over 11,500 retail units under 63 banners in 28 countries and e-commerce websites in 11 countries. It employs 2.3 million associates around the world — 1.5 million in the U.S. alone.

As a privately held development and investment company, Hunt Ventures is poised in the heart of Arkansas’ most dynamic economic area. They are focused on developing and growing the economy of Northwest Arkansas through the visionary ideas and investment of founder J.B. Hunt now carried on by his wife, Johnelle Hunt. Their development offers over 1,000,000 square feet of Class A office space for lease, over 1,500,000 square feet of upscale retail and dining, one of the area’s largest regional medical centers, over 1,000 hotel rooms and the largest convention center for over 100 miles.

Sam’s Furniture was founded in 1991 in a small downtown Springdale location by Sam and Becky Donaldson. Now over 20 years since the opening of their first store, the second and third generation of Donaldsons have continued the growth of Sam’s, making it the Largest Furniture Dealer in Northwest Arkansas. They strive to maintain a down-home, family friendly environment within the store.

Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas is a 200-bed, faith-based, Catholic not-for-profit hospital where compassionate, expert physicians and nurses care for the people of Northwest Arkansas. They continually expand their services to meet your health care needs. They offer emergency services, cardiovascular services, advanced diagnostics, women and children's services, general surgery, bariatric surgery, joint replacement surgery, physical medicine, impatient care, nutrition, and outpatient services.
