We made it relatively unscathed through another holiday season. So, it’s time for a nice break, right? Not for long … It’s time to plan your finest retro James Bond-y type wear for the annual Chamber Banquet, this year with a Casino Royale theme. We’ll shine the spotlight on the best of Carthage, so make plans to join us Friday, January 18, for entertainment, rub elbows with who’s who of Carthage, and help the Chamber honor the year’s most triumphant ladies and gentleman of the community. The competition is fierce every year, and this year is no different. Small Business of the Year finalists are Carthage True Value Hardware, Halo Salon and Maple Leaf Music Company, and Spotlight Award finalists are Herrington Dental, Schmidt Associates and Stone’s Throw Dinner Theatre.


Social hour commences at 5:45 pm with appetizers and a cash bar. Mythos will provide dinner at 6:45 pm to accompany the evening’s program. We will present awards to outstanding teachers, business leaders, volunteers and community members, as well as thanking our leadership and members for their support in 2018. Dressy attire is encouraged, and you’ll want to break out your best because KOAM/Fox is providing a photo booth for the evening.


If you want to show off your products, services or just the amazing business that you are, plan to exhibit at this year’s Carthage Business Expo/Home Show. It’s coming up fast March 8 and 9 and almost three-fourths sold out, so don’t delay, call today!
