Dublin Chamber Banquet
Luanne Schexnider, Chamber Executive Director
The 2017 Dublin Chamber of Commerce Banquet is Monday, Feb. 6 at the Dublin Intermediate School cafetorium (609 Thomas St) with social time and silent auction starting at 6:30 pm and dinner and awards recognition program beginning at 7 pm. This year’s theme is “Lights, Camera, Action- Dublin” with a “Set the Stage for Commerce” focus, for a Green Carpet Gala/Awards Presentation feel. Tickets are $18 for members and $25 for non-members. Suggestions for attire are: “fancy formal, Dubliner normal or character clever.” Come as you are or as you wish you were: black tie, as your favorite movie character, as the character you would be if you were featured in a movie. Make it fun, make it glamorous, make us guess who you are! Anything goes! The Dublin Chamber’s Awards Banquet has a keenness that is not just appealing, but contagious as well. The Awards acknowledge the efforts and successes of outstanding individuals and businesses in our community by supporting and celebrating them. In addition to our traditional awards, we will honor special recipients with No Place like Home Recognition Awards embracing these character traits for Dublin: Heart/Compassion Courage/Resilience Brain/Voice of reason/decision making Traditional Awards this year are retitled to better fit the theme of our banquet, but the descriptions are very similar. Chamber Choice Award Categories: Dublin Lifetime Achievement Citizen of the Year in a leading role Outstanding Chamber director in a supporting role Business Leader in a starring role Faith in the Future of Dublin in a Feature Role Stellar Performance as a Volunteer Behind the Scenes Creativity Award Starring Role as Billie Kloster Ambassador We will have a Silent Auction with great contributions to make it a fun and successful fund raiser. Table decorating is another way of participating and marketing your business in a creative way. We encourage businesses to choose their favorite movie as a theme when decorating tables. The timeframe for decorating will be 4-6 pm and tables will be judged by attendee votes. There will be two winners chosen this year and each will receive $100 Dublin Dollars. Businesses do not sit at their own tables. Chamber of Commerce president Christopher Garza will be MC for the evening. David Kersheval, with the Texas Department of Agriculture, will be keynote speaker and Film Friendly Texas will attend to present Dublin its Film Friendly Texas status. This banquet is always a highlight event that starts the year for Dublin Chamber members and community in a positive way. It takes a lot of hard work and many volunteer hours from the officers and directors.
