The Logan County Chamber of Commerce has planned a fun-filled evening for its members and guests at the annual Chamber Dinner, to be held Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013, beginning at 5 p.m. at the Logan County Extension Office.
“Everyone is always running around and so busy, we at the Chamber want to provide a time set aside to have some fun and to relax while providing the important networking opportunities that come about when getting together,” said Chamber Executive Director Lisa Browning.
The Chamber Board hosts a dinner every year and it has proven to be quite the affair. Not only will those who attend be served a delicious meal- this year’s menu includes lasagna, salad, bread and dessert- they will be part of a program that highlights and honors those who stand out in the community throughout the year.
Some of those to be honored include Small Business of the Year, Farm Family of the Year and Teacher of the Year, all to be announced the evening of the dinner. Teresa Hendrix and Holly Cash will be recognized for Festival Leadership in 2012, Chris Milam, Laurie Holloway, Edna Hughes and Wade Baker will be recognized as retiring chamber board members, Gary Michael Templeman will be recognized as past chamber president, and there will be an announcement of Volunteer of the Year and Corporate Recognition, along with Logan United.
