Golf Outing 2023 is in the Books!
2023 saw one of the largest turnouts for the Chatham Area Chamber of Commerce's Annual Golf Outing, both in terms of players, and sponsors!
Thank you to all who participated, and thank you to the Golf Committee and volunteers who worked so hard on this event! We hope to see everyone at our next fundraiser, the Mardi Gras Community Celebration, on February 24 at Prairie View Reception Center. Check out all our sponsors on our memberclicks.weeblycloud.com/editor/main.php#/Golf Outing Events page!
Thanks to Peaceful Painter, Don Smith Paint, and All In One On-Site Mobile Wash & Detail for Transforming the Outside of Our Building!
What an amazing transformation from the picture when we first moved in, to the deep cleaning by All In One On-Site Wash & Detail, to the professional painting by Leona West, Peaceful Painting, using paint and supplies from Don Smith Paint! Wow - what a difference!
