MEMPHIS – The Memphis Chamber of Commerce celebrated 101 years of service, inviting guests to enjoy a night of bingo and hotdogs at the annual banquet Friday, June 11.

Picking up the event after being forced to cancel the 2020 banquet due to COVID-19, an estimated 55 individuals attended, according to Memphis Chamber of Commerce Manager Kim Cloyd.

“I know that after COVID-19 everyone is glad to get out and play a little bingo and win some prizes,” Memphis Chamber of Commerce Board Director Kim Burnett said.

And, with pandemic-fueled challenges being faced by not only the community but also the chamber, Burnett commended Memphis Chamber of Commerce President Morgan Gallego and Cloyd for all of their hard work at the event, encouraging youth to become more involved in the community.
