Chamber’s annual dinner wows the community

will say one thing is certain, the Jessamine County Chamber of Commerce sure knows how to throw one great party!

Last week, the chamber hosted its annual dinner and awards ceremony at the R.J. Corman Hangar. This year’s theme was a masquerade party, and almost everyone who attended participated and succeeded in wowing me by showing off their one of a kind masks for the event. I was not able to attend last year’s event, but I hardly see how next year’s annual dinner can top what the chamber did this time around. Although, knowing Ronda May and most of the others at the local chamber office, I am sure they won’t let us down and will wow us all again.

Pictures from the event can be seen on today’s Neighbors page. We will also be highlighting photographs in our next edition of Jessamine Life magazine, due out at the end of next month. For those who are not familiar with the chamber, let me have the honor of introducing you to one of the best local spots for businesses in Jessamine County.

The Jessamine County Chamber of Commerce has been involved in the community since 1982. Its mission, is to exist to advance the prosperity of businesses in the community. Its goal, is to improve the overall quality of life for its community. Through membership, businesses work alongside one another, together dedicated to a united effort to help its members achieve great things. Serving the citizens of Jessamine County is what the Jessamine County Chamber of Commerce is all about. Focusing on local businesses, industry, agricultural interests, educational institutions and forming a professional society which unites to better the community is its creed.

For those who have not been introduced to the chamber, or maybe for business owners who may have overlooked it in the past, I urge you to contact them and become involved. If you still need some convincing, I beg you to look at the pictures of the chamber’s annual dinner and let them speak for themselves. There is nothing to lose and only great things to gain by getting involved with your local chamber of commerce.

Jessamine County’s chamber is full of dedicated people whose main drive is to see others succeed. I know this because I have seen them in action and watched their passion for their community.

Stop into the local office at 116 S. Main St. or call 859-887-4351 to see how the chamber can help your local business succeed.

I hope to see many more people out at next year’s annual event. Although, to be honest, if that is the case, the chamber may have to rent a bigger space.
