What an enjoyable night at the annual Redding Chamber of Commerce Awards function, Chamberee. Held at the Win River Casino Grand Ballroom, the room was filled with community supporters to recognize the outstanding volunteers and businesses in Redding. This was the 10th Chamberee that I have attended, and this one was as enjoyable as one could ask. The highlight of the evening was the recognition of Dick Green, the former and long term manager of our own Channel 7, KRCR, as the Citizen of the Year. This award was long overdue, as Dick has been a key member of our community since the 1960′s.
Also recognized were the many past recipients, along with the volunteers that have spent endless hours on behalf of the Chamber. And, these things do not just happen, and hats off to Frank Strazzarino and his entire staff at the Redding Chamber of Commerce for their great planning, aided by the very competent staff at Win River, to make this great annual event happen.
Well done, and certainly well enjoyed, by the hundreds in attendance. On to greater things, now, led by the Redding Chamber.
