The Greater Hammond Chamber and the Ponchatoula Chamber of Commerce joined forces to host SELA’s ribbon-cutting ceremony, Thursday, April 19. Guests from the surrounding area enjoyed refreshments, toured the facility, and socialized with the staff and the people SELA serves at its outstanding Day Program. Plans are underway to host future events for both Chambers, which will greatly expand SELA’s community friends and connections.
