The Cottonwood Recreation Center was the site for this year's Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet held on Friday evening, January 31. Emceed by local radio personality Jackie Bessler and Chamber Chairman of the Board, Amy Brown, the event brought together local business personalities for a night of fun and honors. Karen Pfeifer was presented with the award for Volunteer of the Year. 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.
