Chamber Annual Awards Banquet
  
Thank you chamber members, friends & family for making the 2016 Chamber Annual Awards Banquet a HUGE success!  The cocktail reception, meal and dessert were all fabulously delicious and once again, Brad Upton made our cheeks hurt from his side-splitting humor!

Thank you to everyone that helped to make the evening a great success, including all of our generous sponsors, silent auction committee, donors & bidders and to Forlurado for all your help.  We will be sharing photos of the banquet with all of you soon via our website.  Again, a big THANK YOU to everyone who donated time and money to make this such a fun and successful event!
