Each year over 800 business members and friends join the Chamber for a night of celebration. This year, the Chamber is “Celebrating Success” while going back to the 80’s for entertainment.

Entertainment will be 80’s style beginning with Larry B. The 80’s dance off competition will feature three business groups putting on the 80’s style dance moves.
