“Like several other local businesses Keith Sutton and his team have been dislocated since October due to damages from Hurricane Michael,” Chamber representatives said in a press release about the event. “Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) is a federal-state program that helps people who have physical or mental disabilities get or keep a job. VR is committed to helping people with disabilities find meaningful careers. The public is invited to help celebrate this special occasion. “
