Chamber Chat

“Rolling Out the Red Carpet”

What an amazing evening!  The Chamber Annual Banquet took place on Saturday, February 20th.  I would personally like to thank everyone for coming and want to thank the sponsors for the evening once again.

The major sponsors were AGCO/Sunflower, Beloit Auto & Truck Plaza, Mitre Construction and Nex-Tech.

Along with these major sponsors, there were also table sponsors.  They were Cunningham Telephone & Cable, Farmway Coop, Guaranty State Bank, H & R Block, NCK Tech, Nex-Tech Wireless, S & S Drug, Solomon Valley Bank, Solomon Valley Cinema, Sonic, Waconda Trader & World Pest Control.  Thank you to Waconda Trader for the printing of the invitations and programs.  Without all of these sponsors, this event would not have been possible.

Once all the guests had “shopped” for their seat and had a great meal, Rex Havens, comedian, came on stage and wowed the audience with his performance.  He said at the beginning of his performance, everything he knows he learned from his wife!  Of course this was a true statement for a majority of the crowd!

After Rex was done, the evening concluded and everyone gathered the “gifts” from their tables and went ending their wonderful evening.

Thanks again everyone for supporting the Chamber.  I will start planning for next year!

To see pictures from the evening, look at the Beloit Area Chamber of Commerce facebook page.  What a wonderful time!
