Pitch Perfect at the Hangar held their Ribbon Cutting Thursday, Nov. 30 to a huge crowd of supporters. The event was hosted by the Weakley County Chamber of Commerce and The Martin Business Association.
“We’re thankful for your investment here in the city and in our county and I know you’ll be successful at this facility. We are grateful and wish you much success in this venture,” said Martin Mayor Randy Brundige.
Owners, Brad and Monica White and their five children thanked everyone for coming to the event. “We did this because we knew there was a need. We know this is an investment. Our goal is to help people. Our goal is to bring people in and get them active and have a place for them to go because we know that’s a challenge,” Brad stated.
Monica’s grandfather actually owned the building Pitch Perfect is located in during the 1950’s and had a machine shop in the building. “We’re excited to be able to hold onto this and turn it into something that many people can use. We’ve put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into this building. It’s been a journey,” Brad said.
