Whitehall Chamber President Ruby Anderson awards to 2017 Chamber Champion Award to Jill Dove

At their annual meeting last week, the Whitehall Chamber recognized one business and two individuals for their outstanding service and commitment to the local community.

The Chamber Business of the Year was awarded to K4 Electric. The award is given to the member that has demonstrated exceptional growth in sales or volume, created new jobs, or has contributed positively to the Whitehall community. Chamber Treasurer Jill Dove said the business was a huge help when they needed to get power hooked up to the pavilion prior to Frontier Days in July.

Dove was awarded the Chamber Champion Award, given to the member who exemplifies the chambers mission to bring individuals, businesses, and organizations together to enrich the community. Along with her Treasurer position, Dove serves on many chamber committees and volunteers numerous hours.

The Volunteer of the Year was awarded to Gina Ossello. The award is given to any individual who has continually volunteered his/her time and energy to The Chamber throughout the year. Ossello allows the chamber to use her property for the annual Shakespeare in the Park event.

The chamber recognized five local businesses for reaching the Entrepreneur Designation of five years of membership. The businesses recognized were 4 Paws Rescue, Chrysalis Counseling Service, Garden Gift Shop, Legion Station and Two Bit Saloon. 10 businesses were also recognized for 10 years of membership. Those businesses earning the Principal Member designation were Whitehall A&W/KFC, Jefferson Fresh Foods, Liberty Place Inc., McLean Plumbing & Heating, Smith Supply, Whitehall Chiropractic PC, Whitehall Drug, Whitehall Farmers Market, Whitehall Medical Clinic and Whitehall Saddle Club. Dr. Kathy Meyer of Whitehall Chiropractic said it has been great to see how far the chamber has come since they first started.

In other business, Executive Coordinator Casey Chase said the chamber is working on membership and already has 40 renewals for 2018, above the number at the same time last year.

The chamber also discussed the dates for the major events in 2018. The tentative schedule includes the Easter Egg Hunt on March 31, Black Tie Blue Jeans on April 28, the Community Garage Sale on July 28 and the Christmas Stroll on December 8. There has not been a date scheduled yet for the Shakespeare event.
