CARTHAGE, MO.--- The Carthage Chamber of Commerce annual banquet event will be held on January 18th at the CMC Auditorium in Carthage. It's an annual ceremony held to recognize outstanding teachers, leaders, volunteers, and business owners.
Organizers say this year there's a masquerade theme, guests are asked to wear a mask and there will be a contest to judge the best one. Chamber leaders encourage everyone in the community to participate in this celebration of local businesses.
"What makes Carthage so special is the investment that its businesses make to the community, that its teachers make to its children, and that its volunteers make the efforts that makes Carthage great," says Mary Jo Little, Carthage Chamber. "If we don't celebrate those, we might loose them."
