UNION — This year’s Union County Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet will be a little bit different from the banquets of previous years.

“People can expect a lot of changes, a lot of things different,” Chamber Executive Director Jami Trammell said Friday. “One of the changes is there will be a networking hour from 5-6 p.m.”

Another difference between this year’s banquet, which will be held Thursday, May 4, and previous ones is that there will be a live band. Trammell said that “Fantasy,” a band specializing in Motown-type music and songs will perform throughout the evening. She said that the band has performed overseas in countries such as Japan and South Korea and at gubernatorial inaugurations and other events involving elected officials in this country.

This year’s Awards Banquet is called “An Evening Under the Stars,” because unlike previous banquets it will be held outside. The banquet will be held at the Main Street Junction Ornamental Park behind Main Street Junction in downtown Union.

The keynote speaker for this year’s banquet will be Rick Jiran, Director of Government and Community Relations for Duke Energy.

Tickets for An Evening Under the Stars are still on sale and my be purchased at the Union County Chamber of Commerce, 135 West Main Street, Union. Tickets are $50 per person and table sponsorships are still available.
