Members of the Saint Jo Chamber of Commerce celebrated the success of the past year during its annual banquet Tuesday night and encouraged everyone to become involved in the future of their community
The banquet enjoyed the countryside of Blue Ostrich Winery, located eight miles north of the city. Dinner was served in the glass-doored pavilion looking out over the vineyards and hillside.
Dick Crist, chamber president, welcome guests and members as he enters his second year in the top job. Following dinner the program reflected on Saint Jo’s activities during 2016 including magazine features, as well as events planned for the new year.
Camille Crist, chamber secretary, said the chamber needs “you all involved,” adding often those of us who live here see only the problems and don’t see the good things that surround us.
