70th Anniversary & Awards Banquet

We celebrated the Chamber of Commerce’s 70th anniversary at an Awards Banquet on Saturday, April 29th at Carrollock Farms in Willow Spring! This event celebrated the Chamber’s 70 years of providing support and visibility for the business community in Fuquay-Varina, as well as the many businesses and individuals that have been instrumental in helping the Chamber achieve its goals over the years.

Carrollock Farms is located at 6818 Kennebec Road in Willow Spring, a mere 10-minute drive from downtown Fuquay-Varina. We will post photos soon of this stunning, brand new event venue. We were excited to be able to enjoy and feature this facility before it books up completely!

The overall event was sponsored by Rainbow Home Interiors and Harnett Health Systems. Our awards sponsor was Promotional Partners of Apex, and our music sponsor was Cambridge Village of Apex. Photography was provided by Photo Phil Roche, and the 70 Years in Perspective slide show was presented by Amazing Studios. Our printing sponsor was Joseph C. Woodard Printing Company.
Table sponsors included Four Oaks Bank, Vantage Point Services, and Bob Barker Company.

Special thanks to Tenille Byers, who did an amazing job singing jazz and show tunes for much of the evening — bringing songs from the past into the future.
