Successful chamber year celebrated

SUNMAN – Sunman Area Chamber of Commerce members summed up their accomplishments and recognized community members at their Nov. 6 annual appreciation banquet at Kenneth L. Diver American Legion Post 337.

President Natasha Bischoff said the board of directors “work very well together. We are a team .... (and) our members and businesses have really stepped up this year.

“We started the year off with our golf tournament and had 20 teams .... We had breakfast with the Easter Bunny prior to the Easter egg hunt sponsored by the Sunman Beautification Committee.

“Sunman Daze was the first Friday and Saturday in June.” This was a time for “the entire town to show what we have to offer .... The wine festival, wow! We had a lot of changes this year. One of the biggest was the date change, the Saturday after Labor Day. Another new thing was .... the Salute a Soldier 5K. We had a great turnout, and it was a great start to our wine festival.”

To round out the year, the group is hosting a holiday parade and bazaar Friday, Nov. 22, she noted (please see related article).

Moving on to 2014, Bischoff revealed, “The circus will be coming back to town Monday, May 5. We are looking forward to some more lunch and learns and after hours events. The farmers’ market will continue.”

She also pointed out, “I know there have been a lot of people who have passed away or are going through some illnesses,” so she asked those in attendance to take a moment of silence to think of them.

Vice President Anna Ibold presented three Teacher of the Year Awards.

The first honoree was to Debbie Gregg, St. Nicholas School eighth-grade educator. Ibold read some of the comments from parents and students to describe her. “‘She’s an awesome teacher. She loves and respects each student and knows when to be an authoritative teacher and when to have fun. She’s a teacher who truly cares and loves all the children. She’s an excellent teacher who explains things very well.’”
