The Washington Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet will be held Saturday, March 16 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Washington. The evening features drinks, dinner, a short program, and keynote presentation from a motivational speaker/comedian. The business program includes a short update from the Chairman of the Chamber Board, Dave Politte, followed by the premiere of the Fair promotional video and update from Fair Chairman, Jason Unnerstall. The Missourian will also present the “Washingtonian” award.
Last year, the Chamber changed gears with the entertainment at the annual banquet, booking a motivational speaker/comedian in place of a band. Chamber President Jennifer Giesike commented, “We were really pleased the with change. It was great to see people sticking around longer and enjoying each other’s company. In the past, we would see attendees leave shortly after the band started. It was too loud for a conversation, and if people didn’t want to dance, they would leave.”
This year, banquet attendees will enjoy “It’s All About Family,” from 16-time Comedian of the Year Buzz Sutherland.
