The 2013 Cedar Creek Lake Area Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet is slated for March 18 at Cedar Creek Country Club.
This year’s theme is “Embracing the Past ... Changing for the Future.” The chamber is celebrating its 12th year and the board and staff are continuously looking for new and better programs and changing with the times to meet the needs of the community and the membership. This year’s banquet will celebrate the old and the new and improved.
The chamber banquet is an evening of recognition for volunteers around the area, an annual event that has years of tradition and is filled with anticipation as the names of the winners of the Lifetime Service Award, Citizen of the Year, Ambassador of the Year and various awards from the chamber chapters are announced during the evening’s program. Mabank ISD teachers of the Year and a Eustace ISD scholarship are also given by the Mabank and Eustace chapters of CCLACC.
Chamber President, Jo Ann Hanstrom, said, “I encourage everyone to mark their calendars now and plan to be with us on the special night of the year that we honor the awards recipients. It’s always a wonderful night of celebrating volunteerism in our community.”
The chamber is asking that tickets be purchased in advance so that it can give an accurate count to the staff of Cedar Creek Country Club. Tickets are available for $35 each at the chamber office, 604 S. Third St., Ste. E Mabank. Tables of eight are available by reservation and ticket purchase. No other reserved seats will be available.
