Valley Views – JANUARY 2020
Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony
The Maggie Valley Chamber of Commerce recognized the hard work of its many volunteers Tuesday night during its annual banquet and awards ceremony at Elevated Mountain Distilling Co. Dinner was provided by Appalachian Smoke BBQ, followed by desserts from J Arthur’s Restaurant.
The Maggie Chamber relies on volunteers to step up to help organize community efforts like the Fall Days decorations, Winter Days decorations, painting skis and snowmen, selling beer at the Hillbilly Jam Festival, staffing the town’s ice skating rink event and several others.
“We want to take this time to recognize these folks for so generously giving their time and talents to make Maggie Valley a great place to live, work and visit,” said Chamber Director Teresa Smith. “I would be willing to bet that there’s not another small-town Chamber of Commerce around that has this kind of support. I tried to calculate in dollar amounts just how much money we are talking about that volunteers saved us and, well, all I can say is ‘ain’t no way we could afford to pay these folks.’”
But it’s about more than money for the residents and business owners in Maggie Valley, Smith said, it’s about building relationships and working together as a tight-knit unit, striving for mutual goals, moving Maggie Valley forward and having fun in the process.
The following awards were given:
- Volunteer with the Most Hours — Sue Knapko
- Most Enthusiastic Volunteer — Carolyn Moncada
- Volunteer of the Year — Christine Chamberlain
- Spirit of Maggie Valley Award — Becky Ramey with Hillbilly Jam Festival
The evening ended with Karaoke provided by Julie’s Kickin’ Karaoke.
