The 2019 Chamber Extravaganza was held last night at the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum on the Sonic Floor.
During the event, guests mingled and networked, voted for their favorite tables, and made their bids on silent auction items. The outgoing Chamber Board President Manny Negron spoke about how pleased he was to see all the new connections that were made with the Chamber, gave a brief overview of the Board’s proud accomplishments over the past year, as well as mentioning a few people in new positions.
Eventually, the gavel was passed to the incoming Chamber Board President Randy Johnson, and Mark Richardson, was noted as President-Elect. Johnson thanked Negron for his service and gave a short speech noting that the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce not only serves Big Spring, but also Howard County. He went on to say that he looks forward to be able to represent the hundred of people that work for Forsan ISD and others in Howard County.
The Russ McEwen Community Award was presented to Linda Burchett.
