Chamber Clips Paper Clip

For the 9th consecutive year, a breakfast for the past chairmen of the board of directors was held this past Tuesday at the Beaumont Club, a tradition initiated on the occasion of the 100th anniversary. Four former chamber leaders were joined by the executive committee to hear a presentation by the staff and for a discussion about future priorities. Tim Sudela, incoming chair for the Long Range Planning Division facilitated the discussion. Robert Turner welcomed the group and closing remarks were provided by Nathan Cross. The breakfast is held prior to the board planning workshop which is scheduled for August 15.     


The Beaumont Chamber Foundation fundraiser, Spice of the Season, was held last Friday evening at the Beaumont Country Club with a record number of attendees, who were served a delicious four-course dinner prepared by Carrabba's Italian Grill and served by musically themed dressed waiters.  The event raised more than $31,000 to benefit Leadership Beaumont, breaking the record for funds raised at this event.
