42nd Annual Chamber Awards Banquet

Get ready for an evening of fun, food and recognition at the Annual Chamber Awards Banquet set for Tuesday, February 27th, 6:30 p.m. at the Dayton Community Center (801 S. Cleveland Street).

Each year the Chamber recognizes outgoing directors, welcomes incoming directors, and announces our Citizen of the Year award winners for both Dayton and Liberty. It's a night of good food and fellowship, highlighted by a special guest speaker you're sure to enjoy.

Art RasconThis year, we're honored to have Emmy award-winning journalist and ABC13 news anchor Art Rascon. Art is a Texas native, and although he's a familiar face to local viewers of ABC13 news broadcasts in Houston, his extensive journalism background and broadcasting work extends to places and situations around the world. He has covered major events with CBS News including the Oklahoma City bombing, the O.J. Simpson case, the Branch Davidian stand-off, Mexico's guerilla wars, Haiti's civil unrest, and many others.

We are pleased to have Art Rascon as our featured guest speaker for 2018, and you can view his complete biography on the ABC13 website.
