CRESTVIEW — Attendees at the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce’s Installation and Awards Banquet on Thursday will see that Crestview is “Like No Other Place You Know.”
Christie Cadenhead, the chamber’s chairman-elect, chose “Like No Other Place You Know” as her administration’s theme.
“That is something important to me: being a hometown chamber,” Cadenhead said. “It just had a good ring to it. This is like no other place you know, because there really is no place that’s as awesome as Crestview.”
Cadenhead is the assistant vice president of Community Bank. She said she grew up in Crestview, has family in town and is raising her child here; those are her favorite things about the Hub City.
“I’ve been able to grow in my career here, and just the fact that we have a chamber like this where people can come together and network and have dinner and socialize is something you wouldn’t get in a big city,” Cadenhead said.
Although there are important logistics that go into the function of the chamber, Cadenhead said her main goal for the year is to have fun.
“Growing membership, strengthening our financials and having a good relationship between the city, and the paper, and the chamber, Main Street Association — and all of these organizations that are doing so much for our town, we should really remain united,” Cadenhead said. “That is important to me — but I think that if we are having a good time around here, all of those things will happen naturally.”
The banquet starts at 5:30 p.m. with a cocktail social, and the dinner and award ceremony will begin at 6 p.m.
Dinner will be catered by Boudreaux’s; seats are $40 per person or $400 for a table, and they will be selling seats at the door, according to Cadenhead.
