Chamber dinner will shake things up

The Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce's annual dinner is more than a meal and a passing of the gavel.

This year's event includes a silent auction and talent show.

"Traditionally, the evening's entertainment included a speaker and dinner, but this year we're going to shake things up," chamber of commerce director Christy Wulf said.

She continued that the organization "spends all year planning and working to make Hillsboro a better place to live, work, and play, that we need to take the time to celebrate all of the good that we have done."

The silent auction will include donations from more than 30 Hillsboro businesses and organizations.

A $150 first place prize will be awarded to the best act in the talent show. Talent will include Clint Siebel and the Professors, Kelsey Unruh, Taytum Miller, Lisa Schafer, Sonja Maddox, and Roger Kohls.

Tickets for the dinner are $20 and can be purchased at the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce office at 109 S. Main or call (620) 947-3506.
