The Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting yesterday for Embassy Suites by Hilton Jonesboro Red Wolf Convention Center. The event featured a number of speakers including Kraig Pomrenke, Governor Asa Hutchinson, Tim O’Reilly, Alan Roberts, Chuck Welch, Chancellor Kelly Damphousse, Mayor Harold Perrin, Jim Cargill, and Jerry Morgan. Mayor Perrin gave the Key to the City to Tim O’Reilly of O’Reilly Hospitality Management, LLC, and a donation was made to City Youth Ministries by Embassy Suites. Food was served along with entertainment by Corey Jackson, Marybeth Byrd, a drumline, and a dance sequence by the hotel staff! Tours were given of rooms and a mock wedding reception set up in one room to showcase how the facility can be used. The hotel and convention center will no doubt be a great asset to our city in many ways!
