Celebrate success in Imlay Saturday


Chamber of Commerce hosts annual dinner dance and awards ceremony


December 03, 2008
IMLAY CITY — Community members will ring in the holidays and celebrate another successful business year during the Chamber of Commerce's annual Dinner Dance this Saturday at the Country Side Banquet Center.

There will be a full dinner, open bar, entertainment, dancing, door prizes and a silent auction table. Cocktails will start at 6 p.m. Just prior to dinner at 7 p.m., the Citizen of the Year will be announced.

Following dinner, the chamber will recognize St. Paul's Lutheran Church volunteers with this year's Merit Award. They earned the distinction by opening and operating a soup kitchen at their location on Cedar Street (M-53), which has grown to feed more families in their time of need.

"They've really created a great thing that has been so helpful to people during these tough times," Chamber Director Sally Reinhardt says.

The church group was also among the most successful fundraisers for the 2008 Relay for Life sponsored by the American Cancer Society.

The Imlay City Alumni Association earned the 2008 Service Organization Award. Reinhardt says their efforts to preserve the historic grandstands at Grettenberger Field and to make improvements across the school district make the group most deserving of the award.

Last year's recipients were John Mulder for Citizen of the Year, Austin Stroman for the Merit Award and Sue Howard and her Extreme Angels for Service Organization.

Chamber Director Sally Reinhardt said the four new members for the 2009 board of directors will also be announced.

Reinhardt encourages the community to take part in the festivities.

"It's a fantastic evening where we honor the volunteers of our community and enjoy the company of our friends, neighbors and business associates," Reinhardt said.

Tickets are $35 per person and can be purchased at the door.
