Chamber banquet to feature comedian
The annual Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce banquet, set for 6 p.m. on Jan. 11, 2014, at Cassville High School, will feature Branson comedian Jarrett Dougherty.
Dougherty, who performs at the Pierce Arrow Theater in Branson, will offer a family-friendly performance.
"I have seen the show," said Kelly Mills, incoming Chamber president. "Jarrett's comedy is clean-cut, family-oriented and will have you rolling on the floor laughing. I am looking forward to this year's banquet."
Also on tap is the annual recognition of volunteers, individuals and businesses for outstanding achievements.
"The annual banquet is always an enjoyable evening with good food, entertaining guest speakers and a fun night with friends and community members," said Dusty Reid, Chamber president. "It is an opportunity to recognize various members for volunteerism and community enhancement.
"The Chamber works all year to promote area businesses, industry and tourism," Reid continued. "We also strive to enhance the quality of life in our community.
"This could not be done without the wonderful support of our membership. The annual Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce banquet is one of the ways the Chamber of Commerce says 'Thank you' to all of its members," Reid said.
John Sullivan and the Cassville High School Family, Career and Community Leaders of America will cater the evening meal. Accents and Tents will provide décor.
Advanced tickets are now available at a cost of $20 per person at the Chamber office, located at 504 Main St. in Cassville. Tickets may also be purchased at the door at a cost of $25 per person.
