The view from my desk
First let me say thank you to all our Sponsors for the 2017 year.
Canal Banking and Diley Ridge Medical Center are our Platinum Sponsors. Our Silver Sponsors are Athem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, and Basil Western Storage. Our Bronze Sponsors are Home Helpers, The Inn at Winchester Trails and James Barnett CPA. Small Business Sponsors are Kathy Binner Companies, Megan Bell-HER, Nancy Holloway-HER and Tammy Roof Elliott-Re/Max One.
The Chamber is able to do so much more when our businesses are supportive in this way. Thank you to those who rose to the challenge. Thank you to those who rose to the challenge last year to help us with all of our events. We need you all, to make Canal Winchester the best place to be in business in the area

Annual Awards Dinner
1920's themed event
Come dressed in your best 1920's attire and have your picture taken on site. Come dance to the roaring 20's sounds prepared for us by our own DJ right here in Canal Winchester! We will have a cash bar with mint juleps and more! Committee will be forming to select our 2016 Award Winners. Invitations will be sent out. I expect the cost to be similar to last year at around $50 a person.

Speakers must be a current member of the Chamber, and in good standing. In 2016, there are three topics, and in 2017 there will be 9 topics. All suggestions for topics are welcome, although the Chamber will have the final say on what topics will be chosen. We will endeavor to have a different topic each month so as to not repeat subjects.
