The Cottonwood Recreation Center was the site on Friday evening, January 25, for this year's Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet, MC'd by local radio personality Jackie Bessler and Chamber Chairman of the Board, Debbie Sprinkle. Susan "Susie" Beach was honored with the award for Volunteer of the Year. Her numerous achievements and dedication to the chamber and community for the past decade made her an obvious and worthy selection for the award. New members of the Board of Directors were recognized, as were the squad of chamber volunteers who staff the many events that take place in Cottonwood over the course of the year. Raffle prizes, a silent auction, sumptuous meal and a shot at 22 seconds in the fan-propelled money booth rounded out the fun-filled evening.
