The Winners Are!
The Pittsburg-Camp County Chamber of Commerce held its first “virtual” awards ceremony last Tuesday evening, March 16. Due to COVID-19 limitations, the Chamber Board decided not to have their typical banquet and membership meeting held in January but to do a virtual awards presentation, and membership meeting LIVE via Facebook on the Chamber’s 75th Anniversary date of March 16. Mark Levy, Board Member and owner of Pink Flamingo Sound guided and directed the Chamber to go virtual. The event was LIVE streamed with the direction of Sonya Woods and via the Tri-County Press Facebook page. Over two thousand people have viewed the LIVE stream to date. The Chamber considers this new venture and the kick-off of their 75th Anniversary Celebration a great success.
