14th Annual Day of Thanks Breakfast

BAY MINETTE, AL, October 26, 2018 - Baldwin County United will host the 14th Annual Day of Thanks Breakfast on Tuesday, November 20, 2018, 8:30 a.m., at the Baldwin County Central Annex in Robertsdale, Alabama.

The event is open to all Baldwin County citizens at no charge. Breakfast is provided at no cost. In addition to the breakfast, during the November 6, 2018, Baldwin County Commission meeting, the Commission will proclaim November 20, 2018, as a "Day of Thanks" in Baldwin County. The Day of Thanks is a celebration "to acknowledge and reflect upon the great achievements, blessings and growing prosperity of Baldwin County, Alabama."

Mr. Aaron Beam of Loxley, Alabama, will be the keynote speaker for the breakfast. Mr. Beam does not consider himself a motivational speaker; instead he does hope his message will motivate his audience to live a more ethical life! Mr. Beam was a co-founder of Healthsouth and the company’s first CFO. From 1984 to 1996 he helped grow Healthsouth into a Fortune 500 company. However, in 1996 he took part in an accounting fraud at the company that resulted in one of the largest corporate frauds in the history of the United States. In 2003 he pled guilty to the crime and was sent to federal prison.

He began his public speaking career in 2008 and as of 2018 has spoken to over 500 different groups. These include universities, associations, companies, churches and civic groups. While his primary message is about corporate fraud, who is actually responsible, how they take place, and what can be done to prevent frauds such as Enron and Healthsouth, he will speak to how we can all be thankful for the lessons life has to offer in all forms and manners.

Mr. Beam is also an author, his first book "Healthsouth: The Wagon to Disaster” was published in 2009. His second book was published in 2015 "Ethics Playbook: Winning Ethically in Business.” He graduated from Bossier High School and LSU in 1967. Today, he lives in Loxley with his wife of 47 years, Phyllis.

We hope you will join Baldwin County United and the Baldwin County Commission and welcome Mr. Aaron Beam as we celebrate this 14th Annual Day of Thanks. The Baldwin County Day of Thanks celebration is sponsored by the Baldwin County Commission in conjunction with Baldwin County United who encourages every Baldwin County citizen to take time out on November 22nd and reflect upon blessings here in our county.
