Although the annual Martinsville State of the City event is typically an in-person event hosted by the Martinsville Rotary Club and the Martinsville Chamber of Commerce, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic called for a virtual presentation again this year. This presentation highlights Mayor Costin’s administrations’ accomplishments and plans, brief messages from Rotary and Chamber leadership, and the recipients of the Outstanding Business Professional, Outstanding Business, and the coveted Ruth Rusie Spirit of Service awards. Watch as we surprise three deserving individuals with their awards!

Thank you to all those who made this virtual presentation possible! At the top of our list are Luke Helmer & Home Bank; Jamin Baxter & Inside Morgan County; Mayor Kenny Costin; and Michelle Keller, Brickhouse Loft – a boutique hotel. Be sure to check out the list of our very generous sponsors listed below. As with our in-person event, net proceeds from this event will benefit Rotary and Chamber community projects, along with a donation to the Mayor’s charity of choice for this year, Wellspring.

Thank you to our generous sponsors!

Thank you, Silver & Bronze sponsors!
