9th Annual Amory Main Street Awards

AMORY, Miss. (WCBI) – Amory Main Street held its 9th Annual Awards meeting tonight at the Gilmore Center.

This year the organization honored 22 new businesses, the Volunteer of the Year and two façade grant recipients. Beth Livingston and her husband Mitch have operated Carlisle’s Cleaners in Amory for 25 years and received a special service award at the ceremony. Livingston says the community has given her family just as much in return.

“We’ve made a tremendous amount of friends and it’s just been great being part of Amory. This community has helped us raise our children and that has truly been a blessing to us,” says Livingston.

Some of the new Amory businesses include a sporting goods store, two coffee shops and a ladies clothing store.
