Celebrating the 2017 ChamberChoice Winners

May 19th, 2017 by Amanda Huggett

Earlier today, we hosted another fantastic ChamberChoice Awards luncheon to honor the best of the best busineses in our community. James Cunningham was back for the fifth year as emcee, and once again had everyone “bubbling” over with laughter. Tom Dawson and Roger Reierson, representing the event’s presenting sponsors, opened the event with about 800 people in attendance.

We unveiled the winning businesses—and entrepreneur—in six categories according to our judges’ votes, and named the People’s Choice winner from your own voting prior to the event.
