Chamber Banquet to Chart the Journey Ahead for Business Community
The Greater Hartsville Chamber of Commerce will hold its 94th Annual Membership Banquet on January 22, for the first time ever at the Harris E. and Louise H. DeLoach Center. This event will provide members with an update on the progress made during the year, the direction the chamber is taking for the future, and a chance to witness the 2014 awards given to outstanding citizens by Harts-ville’s non-profit service clubs.
Nominations are being accepted for these prestigious accolades until January 7. These include the Will Woodham Business Person of the Year Award, the Pilot Club Caregiver of the Year Award, the Rotary Club Citizen of the Year Award, and the Duke Energy Citizenship and Service Award. Nomination forms are available on the chamber’s website and in its 214 N. 5th Street office.
The theme of the event will be “The Journey,” as the chamber celebrates its path toward a strong, growing business community and charts its path for 2015. A unique aspect of the décor will be the tables, each decorated by a different local business. Hartsville’s businesses represent a diverse and interesting mix, and the chamber enjoys showcasing this diversity through brightly-colored and masterfully arranged centerpieces and accoutrements.
The banquet is a popular event, and drew a sell-out crowd in 2014 that enjoyed the elegant decorations, fine cuisine, and classy entertainment. Few would want to miss such a chance to meet with chamber members at this refined evening. The 2015 event will enjoy an even greater attendance, as the new venue will provide expanded seating for guests, as well as a fresh look and feel for this traditional gathering.
Award nominations, tickets and sponsorships are available through the chamber for this members-only banquet. Visit www.hartsvillechamber.org or call the chamber at 843-332-6401. Tickets are $35.
The Greater Hartsville Chamber of Commerce is a membership-based business advocacy organization founded in 1910.
