The banquet's theme this year was Perfect Pairings, which teamed a local restaurant's signature appetizer with a special crew beer offered through Ben E. Keith.
“This is the first time I've attended (the banquet),” new Chamber member Kathryn Young said. “It's been a lot of fun — I loved the food. Someone really put a lot of thought into the pairings. They were really balanced and worked well.”
Dinner was provided by the Palestine Regional Medical Center's nutrition services. Corporate sponsors of the banquet include PRMC, Palestine Herald Press, Ben E. Keith Beverages and KYYK-KNET. Entertainment was provided by Oncor Electric Distribution and State Farm-Brett Weisenbum. Mystery Box sponsors were Goolsby Insurance, Jammin JS and Trinity Valley Electric Cooperative.
