Thank you to everyone who made the 2022 Annual Banquet a success. We had the pleasure of honoring some amazing businesses and community members.

The Dessert Dash was also an outstanding success. We can’t wait to make it even more fun for next year. Through the kindness and generosity of the attendees we were able to raise $1,220 for improvement to the Herb Monroe Park.
