Letter: Elburn Chamber of Commerce winter dinner ‘a fabulous event’

By on March 3, 2011

Recently, we had the pleasure of attending the annual winter dinner and silent auction held by the Elburn Chamber of Commerce. Congratulations to the committee organizing the affair. It was truly an inspiring event. All of the chamber members can be proud of the committee arranging it. It was held in a wonderful setting and provided ample room to review the auction items and roam around visiting friends and other chamber members who may not always be able to attend the regular monthly chamber meetings.

Congratulations, too, to the newly elected officers for their devotion to the chamber and the community and their selection of the committee members.

As inspiring as it was, there were still chamber members who were absent. They missed a great time. When the word gets out about the wonderful time had by all, they should be lining up to make their reservations for the next year’s event. I know I will be anxiously waiting for the opportunity to make our reservations for the next year.

To those persons reading this who are not currently members, now is the time to join. It is a rewarding experience to be associated with such a dynamic organization. The fellowship and camaraderie is worth every dues-paying penny you spend. If you really are looking for a reason to join consider the opportunities to be associated with some of the top leaders in our community. They are all willing to share their stories of success which could be beneficial to your continuing success too.

Of utmost importance is the opportunity to become a part of the organization that offers scholarships to local Kaneland students. The proceeds from the winter dinner event go to fund those scholarships.
