A night of entertainment, speakers and food were on the menu Feb. 26 at the East Parker County Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet at Los Vaqueros Restaurant in Willow Park.
Adam Feriend, EPCC Chairman of the Board, expunded on the night’s theme, Expanding Our Horizons.
“I did a little research on the theme of the night and found out that in the beginning, when Parker County was just establlished, they truly had to expand their horizons,” he said. “They dealt with new roads to cut, water issues for the growing populations, and yet they expanded. Parker County faces similar struggles with the economy, the growth in population. Local businesses need support . Now is the time to expand our horizons.”
Entertainment for the evening was provided by Presley Beggs, of the band Inside Out, Rendall Gaviness, Beverly Branch, Barry and Ann Feriend, Steve Marqwardt, Adam Feriend and Katy Keenie.
Man of the Year went to Jim Tilger from Jerry’s AUto Group and Woman of the Year was Evon Markum from First National Bank of Weatherford. Weatherford Regional Medical Center was named Business of the Year.
Other awards went to Carla Luig of The Havens as Entrepreneur of the Year; Pam Snowden of Realty World Professionals as Volunteer of the Year; and Pam Cannataro from Pre-paid Legal Services as Member of the Year.
The Pappy Thompson Community Service Award was given to Becky Kinard from the Center of Hope.
