It's Business Excellence Awards
week and there are just a few tickets remaining (and I mean like less than 10). Just so you know, due to the overwhelming response, we've had to move the awards ceremony inside the Nutt Theater. The meal will be held in the Clayton Center for the Arts foyer beginning at 5:45 p.m. with three buffett lines.
The doors open at 5:30 and the program begins promptly at 6:30 p.m. We are honoring the Taste of Blount winners and presenting 17 Business Excellence Awards before our special guest takes the stage.
So, if you want to grab one of the remaining tickets ($30 for Chamber VIP members, $40 for Chamber members and $60 for the public), they are available at the Chamber office located at 201 S. Washington St. in Maryville, and by phone at 865.983.2241.
FANTASY OF TREES SNEAK PREVIEW
East Tennessee Children's Hospital is offering Chamber members a sneak preview of its annual Fantasy of Trees event at the Knoxville Convention Center on Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 8 a.m.
You will receive on ticket (per Chamber member) and have the ability to shop for holiday decor before anyone else. RSVP to Jessica Boyd

This week in 1977 the most successful single of the 1970s in the United States topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a (then) record-setting ten consecutive weeks. It was "You Light Up My Life" by Debby Boone.
