A December tradition for our Chamber is recognizing members for outstanding service and contributions. Searching back through our photograph archives triggered so many feelings of gratitude. The names and faces of so many community leaders are inspirational.
Plus, we can't afford not to take the time to praise someone who is deserving of recognition for their devotion and service. Join us for our annual recognition luncheon at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, at Andre’s West. Register…
