What a fun evening and fun people. I had the pleasure of attending the Big Stone Lake Area Chamber of Commerce annual meeting tonight at Sioux Historic on Big Stone Lake. I’ve never attended this event in the past but I can tell you that I will be going again! It was a great evening.
Upon arrival, I was greeted by Chamber Director Mary Hillman, with a big smile. Mary and I have been acquainted for several years through family and friends and it’s always fun to see her. I had the opportunity to register for door prizes and then made my way to the silent auction items to take a quick look. There was also an opportunity to play plinko and bean bag toss to win other prizes. The Chamber members were so generous in their donations to the event. I bid on a few items that I thought might be fun and continued on my way to the bar for Happy Hour!
Sioux Historic is one of the gems of MNbump, I remember as a young girl spending many Friday and Sunday nights there roller skating. The big ballroom was filled with tables for the chamber members. We took our seats and Mary introduced new Chamber President Ryan Kehnle. Ryan handled the business part of the meeting well, and we were soon on our way to a fabulous buffet of pasta and pizza. To top it off, we were able to have cupcakes and ice cream!
During the meal, drawings were made for door prizes and the lucky winners were able to pick out one of the prizes that were donated by Chamber members. Bidding on the silent auction items continued until 8:00 pm. It was a great fund raiser for the Chamber in addition to a great opportunity to enjoy each other’s company.
I saw some people that I hadn’t seen in awhile as well as many friends and even met a few new friends. Thanks Big Stone Area Growth and MNbump for letting me represent you tonight. What an enjoyable evening in the MNbump!!
