Upcoming Luncheon - 1/23/2018
Our next Tuesday Luncheon will be held on January 23rd, 2018.

Our Keynote Presenter will be Angelina Klapperich, Miss Alaska 2017.

Angelina Klapperich is our Miss Alaska 2017! She is born and raised right here in Wasilla and is a graduate of Colony High School! She competed at Miss America in September and is the 2nd Miss Alaska EVER to be in the Top 15. She was also voted by her fellow contestants as Miss Congeniality! 
In May, Angelina graduated from the University of Alaska Anchorage with her Bachelor's in Psychology. She is planning to be a school counselor! She chose this career path after losing a dear friend in high school to suicide. This tragic event is also what inspired her to choose her platform message as Miss Alaska. That message is to "Be Compassionate" because EVERY person is fighting a personal battle! She will be sharing her message of compassion with you today!

"Bring your daughters to Chamber"!  This meeting is a great opportunity to bring the next generation of professional business women to our Chamber luncheon! There will be no meeting fee for your special guest and the Grill will have special menu pricing for them as well.  

We will have a 5 minute spotlight presentation by Jeremy & Heather Hongslo of TCM Restoration.
