The City of Sully was one of the sponsors of the First Annual Business Appreciation Night held during the Lynnville-Sully varsity basketball games on Feb. 4, 2012. They teamed up with the City of Lynnville, Sully Development, Lynnville Chamber of Commerce, and the Lynnville-Sully School District to recognize over 100 businesses that provide a wide array of services to the community, as well as demonstrate exemplary commitment to keeping our small towns on the map. In the large group photo, representatives from 43 businesses received a round of applause during halftime of the boys game on Feb. 4. These businesses play a vital role in our community and schools and were recognized for the services they provide and support they generously give.
