Knoxville Chamber Banquet Is Saturday

You can still get tickets for the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce’s annual banquet this Saturday. Chamber Director Larissa Van Donselaar says that both members and non-members are invited to hear more about the progress being made in Knoxville and what lies ahead. In addition to those updates, there will also be a panel of local historians that will host a discussion on Knoxville’s history and what kind of impact the city has made globally. The Chamber will also present their annual IMPACT Awards. You can get tickets for 25 dollars at the Chamber Office.
