Congratulations again to all of the winners honored at this year’s Tree City Annual Awards Dinner held at the KSU Hotel & Conference Center.
The Chamber presented two IMMY Awards: Buffalo Wild Wings – Kent, and County Fire Protection. The Small Business Person of the Year honor went to David Sommers of David Sommers & Associates.
The Chamber’s highest award bestowed upon an individual or organization – the W.W. Reed Medal of Public Service – went to the more-than-deserving, and ever-humble, Doris Brown. Doris was the first female KACC board president, serving in 1980-81.
The KACC’s Bright Star Award was given to Dee Pamer. This year’s President’s Award was given to Charlie Thomas.
The City of Kent presented its economic development awards to Popped!, Smithers-Oasis Company, and the Kent State University Hotel & Conference Center. Thank you to everyone that attended this year’s big event!
Please keep an eye out for two, full-page, full-color ads in the Record Courier on December 9th and 16th . We’ll feature upcoming events, as well as run the annual THANK YOU to our 2013 members – all 294 of you!
Following that, we’ll kick-off the 2014 Membership Campaign, so watch your mail for membership information. Payment is due by March 31, 2014. However, pay by February 1, 2014 and you’ll be included in the first of three, full-page, full-color ads that will run in mid-February. The second ad in the series will run in mid-April, and will include all members paid by April 1, 2014. The third ad will run in mid-December thanking all of your members for their support!
As always, thank you for your continued support of the KACC – it is
