The annual Bay Area Chamber of Commerce awards banquet is scheduled for Saturday. Jan. 27, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Salmon room at the Mill Casino-Hotel. Our theme is “Connecting Community Cultures”. You are invited to join us to celebrate the achievements of 2017 and those outstanding leaders and businesses in our community who inspired us. Besides excellent food, fellowship and a bit of fun, we will take the time to recognize those who regularly made a difference for you and me, with the awarding of the citizen, business, and chamber member of the year. Additionally, the Prefontaine Athletic Award is given, and a new tradition we started in the last couple of years, celebrating organizations who are critical to the success of our community. As we did last year, we will also be recognizing an educator of the year. So get your tickets today at the Chamber Office.
While you are marking events on the calendar, don’t forget to circle Feb. 10, as that’s the day for the Charleston’s Merchants Association’s 34th annual Crab Feed. This affair will be held at the North Bend Community Center from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. You have your choice of a whole or half fresh Oregon Dungeness crab dinner with all the fixings. Additionally, there will be some great prize drawings. While it’s fine food and generally a lot of fun, the important reason to show up is that this is the major fundraiser each year which keeps the Charleston Visitor Information Center open. So see you there!
Remember our business is helping your business. And like us on Facebook.
