    2020 Chamber Banquet – Award Winners
    The Stephenville Chamber of Commerce’s 'All Aboard...Adventure Awaits’ Annual Banquet was a memorable evening as our talented members showcased their amazing products and services in creative ways and raised funds to help the Chamber continue investing in programs and resources that benefit businesses, residents and visitors alike!
    Board Chair Greg Bruner and co-MC/auctioneer Brent Graves led travelers on a night of adventure as they recognized dedicated volunteers, thanked Champion investors, and announced winners of coveted awards.
    The ambassadors serve as the action arm of the Chamber and assist the board and staff in strengthening relationships with members, increasing awareness in the community of the benefits, programs and initiatives of the Chamber, and volunteering their time and talent to make Chamber fundraisers and community events successful.
