Mayors open Tri-State Home Show

- David Laprad | Hamilton County Herald

There were no flimsy ribbons on hand at the 52nd annual Tri-State Home Show, hosted March 2-4 at the Chattanooga Convention and Trade Center by the Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga, so Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke (holding saw in photo above) had to put a little elbow grease into the opening ceremony. County Mayor Jim Coppinger, left of Berke, and Commissioner Chester Bankston, right of Berke, stood nearby, serving as supervisors on the job site.

After Berke completed the task, HBAGC President Jay Bell, far right, thanked the mayors for their support of the association. Coppinger then expressed his appreciation for the work of the home building industry, saying, “Twenty-two thousand people have moved to Hamilton County since 2011. Those people need homes.”

More than 300 vendors showcased their products and services during the three-day weekend.
