Chamber of Commerce holds Hoe-down at annual banquet
‘Barnyard Ball’ was the name of this year’s Morrow County Chamber of Commerce annual dinner meeting.
Chamber president Dan Boysel introduced Ann Tittle as the new Executive Director of the Chamber. Dan told the group Ann was very excited about her new position and looking forward to serving the community.
The ball was held at the Seniors on Center and featured a silent auction, as well as a live auction with Boysel as the auctioneer. There were door prizes, a 50/50 and a special scavenger hunt.
The hunt consisted of matching people up to their talents, such as milking a cow, driving a tractor or having ridden a bull. After completing their answers, they dropped the paperwork into a bucket to win a prize.
Needless to say, if you didn’t know people before, you knew a lot more about them after the dinner.
H’ors D’oeuves and desserts were provided by two local businesses, Creative Twins Catering and 8 Sisters Bakery. A prayer was lead by Mayor Mike Porter before the dinner was served, which was catered by John Gompf owner of the Cornerstone Cafe.
The Hicks and Chicks entertained the Chamber audience with some live Western Square Dancing. Robin Brucker presented the history of square dancing and the Hicks and Chicks demonstrated some basic moves in the dance. Everyone was encouraged to join in for some dancing after dinner. Dan Boysel ended with a Special Thanks to all of the sponsors and told how much appreciation they had for all who had donated to help make the event a success.
