Local business celebrate success.

Friday, the Chamber of Commerce held their annual Spring Break Event. The chamber presented businesses showing growth and development the awards for community and economic success.

"We hope they see the successes of other businesses and encourage them to not only invest in their business and area, but let’s them know this is a community that celebrates the successes and achievements," said Chamber President Tom Poorman.

To keep the event fun the chamber brought in comedian Jeff Blanchard from the Cleveland area.

"People are much more engaged when you make the atmosphere fun and casual," said Poorman. "It doesn’t mean that we don’t take the accomplishments of the business any less seriously because they are critical to the economy of the area."

Friday’s spring break event was held at Hallowed Hills.
