Come rain or shine.....

The Golden Triangle Planning & Development District celebrated 50 years!

The Golden Triangle Planning & Development District was established in 1970. The organization was designed to serve as a liaison between local government and the various state, regional and federal agencies, involved in development of economic, community and human resources. The GTPDD is governed by a 28-member board comprised from four people from each county represented within the Golden Triangle District.  Counties served by the GTPDD are Choctaw, Clay, Lowndes, Noxubee, Oktibbeha, Webster & Winston.  

September 16th,  even though the rain came, the GTPDD celebrated their 50th anniversary with friends, board members (past & present), staff, retired staff, as well as, elected county and city officials.  Attendees enjoyed wonderful food catered by Carla Guyton and Diane Thomas.   The day brought rain, but blessings were abundant seeing old friends, as well as, having many representatives from companies that work with the PDD.  

Executive Director Rudy Johnson presented Jimmie Oliver, Choctaw County GTPDD Board Member, with a plaque acknowledging his 50 years of service to the PDD.  After the festivities outside, guests were asked to join together in the Boardroom.  Mr. Johnson and the GTPDD honored Mr. Oliver by naming the Boardroom, The Jimmie D. Oliver Boardroom.  

Golden Triangle PDD would like to thank everyone that braved the rain to help us celebrate 50 years!
