The Pocomoke Area Chamber of Commerce would like to thank everyone who participated in the Annual Dinner.

Guests to the 62nd Pocomoke Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner were transported to a tropical paradise the moment they walked through the doors of the Pocomoke Community Center. From melting snow outdoors to palm trees and umbrella drinks indoors, the change was magical. Each guest was greeted with and "Aloha" and a lei by Esther Troast before entering the ballroom where DJ Adam Riggin played tropical tunes. We know he worked quite hard to come up with this collection that included everything from Elvis' Blue Hawaii to Jimmy Buffet and the theme song to Lilo and Stitch. (He also played many songs from his own collection, probably a good thing as our director went a bit overboard with tropical ideas!) The balloon palm trees and the stunning colors and decorations in the ballroom were the creations of Decorating Committee head Amy Latimer and were carried out by Mike Latimer of The Cellular Connection, Debbie Ritter of the Worcester County Commission on Aging, Mona and Violet Margarita of the River Gem Bed and Breakfast at Littleton’s, John Rafter of ABLE Vacation Property Maintenance and Jeremy Mason, Chamber President, of Hall Realty and Regent Homes by Beracah. Beautiful summer flip-flop flowers were provided by Enchanted Florist.

After a wonderful dinner of ham and pineapple from the Pocomoke Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary, the awards were presented. Kim Jackson of Market Street Boutique won the Business Person of the Year Award. Past president Josh Nordstorm presented the Community at Heart Award for Chief Kelvin Sewell of the Pocomoke Police Department, which was accepted on his behalf by Mayor Bruce Morrison. CD Hall of Hall Realty was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, accepted on his behalf by Jeremy Mason, Chamber President and longtime employee of Hall Realty.

Costume winners for the group costume was Tyson Foods. For the men’s costume, Josh Nordstrom won in a stylish grass skirt while Emily Nock of Nock Insurance Agency Inc. and Kathy Labbree (a former Chamber board member from Affordable Business Systems tied for the prize for best woman’s costume in matching “bathing suit” aprons. During the course of the evening, generous bidding occurred on the beautiful silent auction items . Later in the evening there was limbo, and even the Mayor participated!
