“We are happy to announce Rice Motor Company as the member of the month for November. A little-known fact, Rice Motor Company has been a member of the Carmi Chamber since the chamber’s inception in 1944. That is 77 years of dedication to the growth and prosperity of Carmi and does not include the 13 years they were open prior. Clarence Rice helped start the chamber, served on the interim board, followed by the board of directors for many years. Their commitment to this community and the surrounding area shows not only through their longevity, but also through their numerous acts of generosity and support to our local schools, non-profit organizations, and their customers. For these reasons, and many others, they were chosen as the Chamber’s Business of the Year for 2021.” stated Executive Director, Kelly Northcott.
