Mayor of South Hill
I am Dean Marion, mayor of South Hill. I am proud to have served as President of the South Hill Chamber of Commerce. In its history since 1942 I feel that the South Hill Chamber truly embodies the meaning of chamber as a group working together to accomplish good for all. From the largest employers to the smallest companies, we gather each month (120 on average) for our monthly luncheons. We certainly encompass the 3 F's in Food, Fellowship and Fun. But we also strive for a 4th F which stands for Future as the South Hill Chamber of Commerce is always looking ahead to the future and working to bridge any gaps insuring that our chamber is always working together to provide leadership and improve the quality of life for our community. As the newly elected mayor of South Hill I look forward to working with our town council, our chamber of commerce and our citizens to make South Hill a great place to live work and play.
Come for a visit and check us out. As our town motto says, "You'll like the view from South Hill."
South Hill Chamber of Commerce
Hi, I am Kevin Thomason, Owner/Operator of Rent-E-Quip in South Hill, VA. My father started this location of our family business in late 1997. I joined the family business in 2004 in the Colonial Heights location and recently came to South Hill upon dad's retirement in 2012.
I find the South Hill Chamber to be a great way to meet business people and network with this community’s leaders. I have served on the Chamber board of directors and have learned so much about our wonderful community and met some of the friendliest people I have ever known.
I wholeheartedly recommend membership to anyone offering goods and services in or near South Hill. Our monthly luncheons rarely host less than a 100 members. We combine informative programs with good food and fellowship. We also add a splash of fun which makes these first Tuesday luncheons a must do to be truly involved in our town, schools, healthcare, and retail members of our fun and friendly locality.
Past-Chamber President (2016-2017)
I am so thrilled to be a member of such a vibrant, connected and worthy organization as the South Hill Chamber of Commerce. I have been an active member for over 25 years.
The networking amongst this group and the businesses of the community are immeasurable and it has built strong standing relationships.
In my younger years I couldn’t fathom living in South Hill after completing school thinking that I would miss out on the treasures of life. Ironically, that has proven not to be so- South Hill is “the treasure of life” and organizations such as the Chamber leads the way in experiencing the riches of life while doing so within a setting of peace, comfort, beauty and enjoyment.
As the Chamber President for 2016-2017, I say thank you to the South Hill Chamber of Commerce for this opportunity of leadership. I am committed to carry the torch of excellence with our members help and God’s grace.
