It has been busy times here at the Chamber as we have transitioned from the candy of Halloween to the trees of Christmas!
If you missed all the Trick or Treat excitement on the Square…WOW! What a record crowd! We had over 70 costumed kids and adults participate in our Costume Contest. Special thanks to our judges this year Ricky Whitlock, Gordon Thomas, and Kyle Williamson. They definitely had their work cut out for them this year. Thanks to Marsha Duncan, our wonderful MC, and her volunteer high schools students who assisted us for the costume contest. Thank you to the Awards Center in Elizabethtown for sponsoring the awards this year. The additions of inflatables by First Baptist Church and food vendors, Makin Memories and Adams Family Foods, added more fun to the festivities. A big thank you to all the businesses and organizations that participated and gave candy to our massive crowd; we could not have done it without you.
