We ended the Annual Dinner & Awards Banquet with a little humor and cherished moments from the video tapings.

Thank you so much to our winners for being such good sports and reminding us why we enjoy one another and appreciate the fellowship we have as MOV Chamber members!

Two final requests – 

For the men, did you wear a dark coat to last week’s Annual Dinner? Did you leave in a dark coat but now might be thinking “hmmmm, this might not be my coat after all?” Please check the coat you left with and see if it’s a men’s Joseph A Banks size 40 or 42 (might have some white cat hair on it….) We think this may belong to another member who now has your men’s Joseph Abboud coat, size 44. (The size 44 coat is now in our office ready to exchange if you have the Joseph A Banks coat.)

If you enjoyed these videos, please LIKE our Facebook page and share a comment with us.

Many thanks to Cathy Richardson and Brian Guthrie at Suddenlink Media for producing these videos and to the those who shared their time to answer a few questions in front of the camera.

Thank you to our 2016 Annual Dinner Sponsors!
