Local business people networked, lunched together and granted a college scholarship at the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce’s monthly luncheon today.

The annual “picnic in the park” attracted about 65 chamber members. The crowd included former and current mayors Pat Kelly and Chris Thornton, City Administrator Bola Akande, Police Chief Dan Fitzgerald and Fire Chief Ted Jury.
