Welcome, Vidalia Denim! Hundreds turn out for event
More than 300 people turned out Tuesday to the Vidalia Conference & Convention Center to welcome Vidalia Denim Mills.
Mayors and alderman of Natchez and Vidalia, economic development officials, community business representatives and residents looking for work were all part of the crowd gathered to welcome the newest industry to the Miss-Lou.
On the podium with Craft were… Louisiana Congressman Ralph Abraham… Abraham said he grew up in Lake Providence, Louisiana, and spent time as an adult working as a veterinarian and physician in the Mississippi Delta.
“When Vidalia Denim and Syrah Technology come to these cities, what they are going to find, and what they already know, is a community that wraps their arms around them but more importantly, they are going to find workers who show up on time and do the job and do it again day after day after day. These are Americans we are proud of.”
