As of Monday, July 7 the Headland Area Chamber of Commerce office has relocated in the City of Headland’s new Municipal Complex at 25 Grove Street, on the square. Formerly Alabama Power, the renovated facility is now home for the Mayor’s Office, City Clerk, Water Department, Henry County Annex and E-911. The Headland Police Department, City Court and City Council meetings will remain at the City Hall, now the Judicial Building. An open house will be scheduled later this summer.
The Chamber’s phone and mailing address will stay the same.
Sundown Cinema was a rousing success on Thursday, June 19th! Over 400 people attended our inaugural Sundown Cinema showing of "The Sandlot". Mayor Ray Marler welcomed those in attendance and thanked the various sponsors that supported their Chamber in conducting this event.

Local businesses as well as non-profit organizations benefitted from this event that was sponsored by Renaissance Headland, the City of Headland and the Chamber of Commerce. More Sundown Cinema events are in the works!
