Plaques presented to gala winners
The Springville Area Chamber of Commerce had a very successful 2014 Annual “Spirit of Springville” awards banquet. It was a well attended event, complete with great food, easy-listening jazz music and the awarding of the first annual “Spirit of Springville” awards to three well-deserving winners: M&T Bank – 2014 Business of the Year, David Batterson Sr. – 2014 Citizen of the Year and James P. Oatman – 2014 Student of the Year.
All events sponsored by the chamber, including its annual banquet, would not be successful without the willingness and generosity of the many volunteers and donors, who consistently step forward to contribute their time, talents and donations to make each event more successful than the one before it.
I would like to especially acknowledge the following: Chairperson Anne Cooper, Co-Chairperson Deb Gernatt; ad sponsors: A 24-Hour Door National; B&B Homes; Amy Schmitt-Kingston, DDS; Community Bank; Concord Land Realty; Cooper Planning Group; Crosby Mart; InTomes Technical Service; The law office of Michael Benson (“J.P. You’re my hero,”) M&T Bank; McDonald’s; RJR Engineering and the Children’s League.
