ABOVE, Past Chairmen of the Chamber Board over the last 40 years gather for a group photo, to socialize, and to watch a video presentation of their accomplishments documented in pictures. 23 of the chairmen were present. Shalonda Dawkins noted in her introduction that some of them had passed away.

HOUSTON – Several hundred guests and Chamber members gathered last Saturday night at the Houston Hobby Airport Marriott Hotel, for a grand evening of good food, socializing, reminiscing, and dancing.

The occasion was the observance of the 40th Anniversary of the North Channel Chamber of Commerce.

The evening was a benefit fund raiser for the chamber, as well as a happy and historical occasion. A silent auction with a number of very special items kept the bidding lively.

Master of Ceremonies was chair-elect Shalonda Dawkins, and awards were presented by past chair Lucia Bates and chamber president Margie Buentella.

The evening included the swearing in of the new Chamber Board for 2017, with Constable Chris Diaz officiating.
