Chamber Annual Banquet

The Chamber would like to announce JOHN DEBOER as the entertainment for this year’s Chamber Banquet!


It has been said, there are only two ways you can go in life after making a mistake. Learn from it and move on or don’t learn from it and and stay where you are. John DeBoer has chosen a third route: Write a joke about it and share it with the masses. His nerve-hitting show flows from the devious side of childhood to the never-ending pressures of our times.

Having appeared at comedy clubs, colleges, three federal penitentiaries, the Daytona 500 Experience, as well as on Comedy Central, XM-Sirius Satellite Radio, and in national TV commercials, with a brief (very brief, yet heartwarming) shot on Last Comic Standing, John DeBoer might be the funniest comedian you never heard of.

Saturday, February 21st Down Under
6pm Social
7pm Dinner
8pm “Short” Chamber Program
8:30pm Comedian John DeBoer

Exclusively for Chamber members, tickets are on sale and can be purchased for $30 each by calling the Chamber Office at 785-738-2717 or email
Personal invitations will be sent out soon!
