More than 200 people traveled to Morgantown Wednesday for the city’s area chamber of commerce’s Take Me Home Country Roads luncheon.

The luncheon focused on the growth created by the I-79 Corridor of North Central West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania. Future goals were also set to help better serve residents and those traveling through the area.

“We’re pleased to be a part of today’s event and to make sure that as we create the vision for our area were not to just continue to try to be a leader within the state of West Virginia, but that we do. So, to compete with similar cities throughout the country, to make the greater Morgantown area become a destination of choice,” said Kimberly Moyers, chairman of the board for Morgantown Area Partnership.

The Chamber of Commerce, Mine County Development Authority, Morgantown Area Economic Partnership and Neighborhood Revitalization Organization joined together to host the event.
