First Citizens Banquet will be different but not virtual

PENDLETON – The Pendleton Chamber of Commerce will have its annual First Citizens Banquet, and CEO Cheri Rosenberg says it will not be virtual.

“We absolutely will be doing an event,” she said. “It will probably be more towards April. We will be doing it outside.”

Rosenberg said that she salutes groups that have gone virtual for their awards banquets, but that wouldn’t work in Pendleton.

“We’re getting very, very creative,” she said. “We’re going to pull in our restaurants, so it should be a really super cool event.”

Nomination forms will be available in the near future at the chamber office. More specifics about the banquet itself will be announced as soon as they are determined.
