Awards Banquet

Our Annual Awards Banquet is held in January each year and is our time to recognize all those who help our community grow.

At this banquet we recognize chamber members for their outstanding work throughout the year within our business community. We give awards for Citizen of the Year, Chamber Member of the Year, Friend of the Chamber and more. At this banquet is when we also swear in our new Executive & General Board Members, pull our chamber raffle prize winner and much more while we enjoy a warm dinner, beverages of all degrees and live entertainment.

This banquet is open to the public although Chamber Members receive official invitations via direct mail. RSVP is required for this all inclusive, business casual banquet event.
