Local Boy Scouts also posted the colors and led the pledge of allegiance. The Scouts also collected donations from those attending
Bowie’s Community Center was filled with an array of beautiful tables decorated by chamber members. Advanced Rehabilitation was the first place winner for decorated table. Belle Rose was second, The Brick was third and H&R Block received honorable mention.

A new award, the Build a Better Bowie award, went to Lynn Heller for his tireless efforts with the former Bowie Memorial Hospital. Mildred McCraw received the Frances Brite Citizen of the Year Award.
