Spirit of Boone: Boone Area Chamber of Commerce 74th Annual Membership Gathering
The Boone Area Chamber of Commerce hosted Spirit of Boone, its 74th annual membership gathering on September 21, 2023. With a crowd of nearly 350 attendees, the evening served as fun-filled opportunity for connection and celebration. The highlight of the event was a video presentation that honored the Chamber's nine annual community award winners, each highlighted for career achievements or their efforts on special projects. Outgoing Board of Directors Chair, Talia Freeman, provided an introduction of incoming chair Heidi Ragan. The evening was capped with live music from Boone's-own Pressley Layton Band.
