Thanks for a successful awards gala event

 I would like to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who helped make the 2019 Greater Reedley Chamber of Commerce Business & Community Awards Gala worthy of those that were being honored. After the critical praise we received for last year’s event, our staff and volunteers were tasked with meeting the raised bar. I think it is safe to say — we surpassed it.

My team and I worked hard to put together a program that would properly honor our award recipients, showcase Reedley, and be entertaining for those in attendance. It means so much to know that our efforts were recognized and are appreciated.

I must begin by thanking our sponsors for their financial support and organizers for helping with many of the fine details that made this evening so memorable. A big highlight of the evening was our local talent, so I would like to give special acknowledgment to Meg Clark, Courtney Cowin, Stacey Hall, Joseph Ham, Thomas Hayes and Jeff Lusk for their performance. I also extend my thanks to the clubs and organizations for their many contributions.

Lastly, I would like to thank the Chamber Governing Board for their vision and the trust they place in me to head this organization. The Chamber Awards Gala is an opportunity to showcase and honor the best about Reedley and I am very grateful for the support the community has shown.
