Chamber welcomes new Marshallites

Friday, November 5, 2004

Extending a warm welcome to those new to the community, the Marshall Chamber of Commerce held its 49th annual Newcomers Banquet Thursday night.

Approximately 150 people attended the dinner and mixer held at the R. Wilson Brown Room on the campus of Missouri Valley College. The evening gave new residents and business professionals a chance to rub elbows with locally established leaders and politicians.

After a welcome to the city from Marshall Mayor Connie Latimer and Chamber of Commerce President Arline Borchers, attendees were served a three-course meal catered by MVC and were given a chance to mingle over dinner.

After dinner, more than 50 new employees of Marshall businesses, including the new establishments of Applebee's, Mid-America Wireless and Perchhill, were recognized and introduced to the group.
