Chamber presents Annual Awards

The Bolivar Peninsula Chamber of Commerce hosted their Annual Awards Banquet – Making Waves! The event was held at Stingaree’s last Tuesday. A Big Thanks to Brad Vratis for hosting and providing an excellent meal served by an excellent staff. A High Five – you outdid yourselves. The invocation was led by Reverend Valerie Hudson of Bay Vue Methodist Church, always a pleasure to hear your words of wisdom.

The speaker, none other than Mack McIngvale – “Mattress Mack!” No wonder it was a sold out show! His message rings true “Life force for Good, Life is not about me, life is about helping others.” Mack McIngvale is an inspiration, he’s a living, walking force of positive thought and he’s pledged his life to helping others.

Also joining us: Our County Commissioner, Darrell Apffel, Henry Trochesset, Galveston County Sheriff, Lee Crowder and William Comeaux, Road & Bridge, and Former Judge Pat Vondra. Bolivar Peninsula Chamber Board Members in attendance were Brenda Flanagan, President, Anne Willis, Vice-President, Tim Byrom, Secretary, Sharon McCurdy, Treasurer, Michael Lange, Jim Walters and Keith Zahar.
