Dancing with the stars
The annual Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce dinner and awards banquet went country with its theme “Rhinestone Rodeo” and the boots were stomping when the dancing started. The chamber handed out four awards: Business Person of the Year went to Carl and Alaine Nolt who own Serrano’s Coffee Co., Nonprofit of the Year went to Tri-Lakes Cares, Volunteer of the Year went to Jim Bergeron who volunteers at Tri-Lakes Cares and chamber Ambassador of the Year went to Tom Hilfers who serves as secretary on the chamber board of directors. Besides dancing and awards, there were also a silent auction and a live auction that netted $2,045. All auction items were donated by local business owners.
