On Thursday, January 17, 2020, the Douglas-Coffee County community celebrated the grand re-opening and ribbon cutting for Anytime Fitness with new owner Buddy Watkins and his wife, Jordan.
Jay Graham, brother-in-law, provided a prayer for the Watkins family and their new business venture. On behalf of the Douglas-Coffee Co Chamber of Commerce Board, Dr. Tracy McClelland thanked Anytime Fitness for partnering with the chamber and offered support from the board and staff. City of Douglas Mayor Tony Paulk shared his appreciation for the Watkins' investment in Downtown Douglas and wished them great success.
Mr. Watkins extended his sincere appreciation to everyone attending the grand opening and all the many vendors who participated in the celebration in support of healthy lifestyles. He also shared a special thanks to Keegan McGovern, who plays in the Seattle Mariners’ organization and Douglas native, for attending and signing autographs on baseballs. The ribbon cutting concluded with a grand finale of an Air-Evac helicopter landing in the parking lot. Buddy Watkins and his team are eager to help you "get to a healthier place."
