The Greeting Service has welcomed newcomers with traditional southern hospitality to the Valdosta area for 58 years. By providing a personal home visit and a folder containing information about schools, churches, cultural opportunities, coupons and goodies, The Greeting helps make moving to South Georgia comfortable. According to Co-owners Patti Minton and Karen Reissiger, welcoming newcomers to the Valdosta-Lowndes County area is gratifying. “It has enabled our company to meet and work with people from all over the country and world, assisting them in becoming an integral part of their new community,” said Minton.
Minton and Reissiger believe The Greeting Service’s greatest accomplishment, apart from welcoming newcomers, is its published resource guide, FYi* South Georgia. The guide highlights goods and services in seven communities to help new families as well as locals find resources within a 50 mile radius to meet their needs. “It has been very rewarding to witness how many newcomers have benefited from FYi* South Georgia in making transition smoother,” said Reissiger. “And its ‘priceless’ – free to everyone.”
The pair believes that the organization’s membership with the Chamber has provided many great networking opportunities. “As a Chamber Ambassador, I have been given the chance to meet new businesses first hand as they become integrated into the Chamber,” said Minton. “The Chamber does tremendous work in helping members network, which in turn provides growth and opportunities for the businesses.”
