Maggie Valley’s Chamber of Commerce held its annual awards dinner Jan. 14 at Elevated Mountain Distillery.
The event featured drinks mixed by Elevated owner Dave Angel himself and barbecue from Appalachian Smoke. Chamber President Patty Carter and Executive Director Teresa Smith presented a brief program, which included the swearing in of new board members Jim Drews, Rose Beck and Angel.
Smith thanked the large crowd of chamber members for their positive involvement and energy.
“I bet there’s not another small-town chamber this committed to what we do,” she said.
