Our home, Independence County, isn't just a place - it's a lifestyle defined by the positive impact and can-do attitude of those who live here. The Spirit of Independence was on full display in 2020 with countless members of our community stepping up to be a true guide - navigating others through unprecedented challenges. In January, the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce honored some of these amazing individuals with a surprise, on behalf of community sponsors, to say thank you for their impact within our community.
We invite you to join our campaign throughout 2021. Tell us who you think reflects the "Spirit of Independence," going above and beyond to make a positive impact and inspire others. Follow us on social media and share your stories and photos with the hashtag #spiritofindependence to help spread our community's spirit far and wide.
