On behalf of the Crookston Area Chamber Board of Directors, staff and event committee, I would like to thank our community for the outpouring of support of our Annual Chamber Celebration and Awards Night held on November 16th. Once again, we are beyond thrilled with the attendance, the donated raffle items, the band Kissing Company and the beautiful venue at the Crookston Inn.
Our event this year was sponsored in part by Dennis Egan of Epitome Energy, Molly Hanson of Choice Therapy, Dana Jonsson of First Community Credit Union, and Dr. Gander, Coles and Storhaug of Opticare. Their generosity made this event a spectacular evening for all.
