The Pine Bluff Regional Chamber of Commerce held a contest last week on its Facebook page to win items with the Chamber logo. To be eligible to win, contestants had to like the post, share the post, tag a friend and comment on one thing they love about Pine Bluff/Jefferson County.


The winning entry was from Rebecca Rodgers Stone of the Pine Bluff School District.


“Chamber staff enjoyed reading the comments so much that we wanted to share with membership,” according to a news release.
