There will be a short social hour with a cash bar starting at 4:30 p.m., with dinner and presentations to follow. Tickets are $25 each, please RSVP no later than Feb 5! Masks and safety protocols will be encouraged. This event is open to the public.
Chamber Members that would like to have a business card or small promo item added to our welcome/goodie bags for the event, please reach out to me this week or stop by the office! Please help us share this event with anyone that might like to attend!
