We are having our River Valley Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards Dinner on April 30th.
Honored categories will be Business Person/Business of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Customer Service of the Year and Non-Profit/Community Service Leadership Award.
This is always a great time for our members and very worthy recipients of the awards. At this point the theme looks like it will be a sock hop. Poodle skirts, saddle shoes, penny loafers, hair slicked back (if you have enough or any to do so), pony tails, Happy Days!
Just a little before my time but I am very familiar with it as I had three older sisters who relished those years.
It may be a bit early but for those of you who play golf, but if you want to advertise or sponsor a team for the 9th Annual Rumford Rotary & River Valley Chamber Golf Tournament, it will take place on July 12th. You can reserve a spot by calling Rich Allen at 357-8023.

It started January 31st and will end May 10 but it is never too late to start. The RVHCC challenges community members to grab a friend or colleague and walk.
Just track the days and number of miles you walk on a record sheet. Contact Carol or Sandy at 364-7408 for more information.
