This is the fifth and final post recognizing all of the valuable contributors that helped make this year’s Chamber golf outing a huge success. It is the continued support of these businesses and individuals that helps the Chamber fulfill its mission of offering programs and benefits to its members, giving its members a stronger voice in advocacy and being involved in more activities and initiatives in our communities.
With only three full-time staff members, the Chamber could not successfully put on the golf outing each year while also making sure the office remains staffed during the day of the tournament without the help of several dedicated and willing volunteers that assist the Chamber staff with logistics and day-of-event duties. Thank you to these individuals for donating their time and helping make sure the event ran smoothly.
Jodi Berry, M&T Bank

Dave Brokus, M&T Bank

Also, thanks to both Kathy Taylor and Amanda Woolsey from the Hampton Inn-Danville, who originally planned to volunteer but were unable to due to the date change of the tournament.
Special thanks to Jodi Berry of M&T Bank, who went above and beyond in both rounding up volunteers, but also in requesting prize donations from area businesses. Her volunteer efforts on behalf of the Chamber and the golf tournament are greatly appreciated, and the tournament would not have run as efficiently, nor would the prizes have been as good without her help. Thank you, Jodi!
Finally, last but not least, thank you to the staff at Knoebels Three Ponds Golf Club, which hosted the Chamber golf outing for the second straight year. Mike Thompson and the pro shop staff had every detail related to the course and players taken care of, and Kathy Baker and her food and beverage staff served some great-tasting food for the tournament’s players and patrons. It’s a first class group and we thank them for all of their efforts for making this a first class tournament.
