On Saturday, June 17, Green Supply and their employees gathered at the Vandalia Area Fairgrounds to celebrate 50 years of business.
Green Supply was well known in the area in 1967 as a retail store, where customers could purchase anything from toys to tools and appliances. It has since grown into a major wholesale business featuring firearms to camping equipment. The business is owned by Robert and Karolyn Green and Bill and Jana Green.
Over 200 employees and their spouses along with their children enjoyed the celebration. Everyone enjoyed the games and the food provided. It was a time to visit and reminisce. There was also a dunk tank, which the managers used to help raise money for an employee who is currently on leave.
The party was a big success and was sponsored by Hogue Grips. The delicious meal was catered by the Country Cupboard. Other celebrations are planned throughout the year as Green Supply continues to grow.
