Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us.

Life is so endlessly delicious.

- Ruth Reichl

Each February we gather for a banquet feast.


We gather to celebrate one another.


We gather to reflect on the trials 

       and triumphs of the past year.


We gather to share

our hopes for the future. 

Here exists community - the kind that lasts beyond the meal, the kind that makes us all grateful to live in this place.


We welcome you to join us. You needn't be a member or even in business. If you want to celebrate, reflect, and share, come. We'll have a table waiting for you!

Each year we honor those who have made special contributions to our community during the previous twelve months. 

Those honored in 2019 include:

Kwik Stop                           Business of the Year

Tina Dzikowski                   Teacher of the Year

Tina Heffner                       Citizen of the Year

Congratulations to all for a job well done!

Annual 'Business of the Year' and 'Citizen of the Year' award recipients are selected from nominations we - the Penrose Chamber of Commerce - receive from the community. If you would like to nominate a business or individual for these honors, please complete the forms below and submit them to us.

Buy your tickets below. We're excited to celebrate with our incredible businesses soon!

The 2020 Celebration Banquet has been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We are hoping to reschedule in May. We will have the banquet, so please follow our social media for updates. Tickets may be purchased online or by sending a check to the Penrose Chamber of Commerce.

Please note that due to high demand, seating will be guaranteed on a first-come, first-served basis to those who submit full payment at least five days in advance of the Celebration Banquet.
