A grand opening ribbon cutting was held for Lakeview Estates from Gehan Homes and the Greater Anna Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, Feb. 2. Gehan Homes is currently building new homes in Lakeview Estates, the company’s first subdivision in Anna. The corporation has numerous locations in Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and the Dallas-Ft. Worth area of Texas; also in Phoenix, Arizona. The organization’s specialty is energy efficient homes. Gehan Homes brings to Anna two model homes that are now open.


Ribbon cutting ceremonies are complimentary with every Greater Anna Chamber of Commerce membership. Kevin Hall, the executive director of the Greater Anna Chamber of Commerce, said the chamber coordinated with Gehan Homes to achieve the maximum benefit to all who were involved.


“Gehan Homes and the Greater Anna CoC worked together to have the ribbon cutting on the same day as their grand opening,” Hall said. “We also timed it so that we could have our February Networking Breakfast there prior to the ribbon cutting, so as to draw in a larger audience.”


Hall said he is excited to see what the future holds and is happy he was able to work with Gehan Homes to make the event a success.


“The Greater Anna Chamber of Commerce was privileged to host the ribbon cutting ceremony for Gehan Homes at Lakeview Estates during their grand opening on Thursday,” Hall said. “We had a fantastic turnout of chamber and community members there to welcome Gehan to Anna.”


Hall said a factor of having these events run smoothly is the hospitality of the people he works with.


“Gehan’s friendly staff from both the Lakeview Estates locations, as well as their corporate office were on hand to give us a tour of their breath taking model homes during the ceremony.”
