Chamber Compass: December 2017 Edition
Annual Awards Dinner invitations mail this week!

Just six short weeks until we celebrate our business community and leaders in style.

The menu has been confirmed (chicken, steak and pasta!) and the award finalists (six!) have been selected. We've even brought back the silent auction so many of you have asked about.

The theme is Mardi Gras and we encourage all to dress in purple, green and gold. Masks are encouraged! Did you know if you ride on a float during Mardi Gras you are required by law to wear a mask?!?

Please join us Friday, January 19th from 6:00pm to 10:00pm at the Paddock Pub Event Center at the Links at Groveport Golf Course. Click here to register.

For sponsorship and silent auction contributions, please contact Teri Mutchler.
