The Chamber’s 100th Anniversary Celebration

May 24, 2024 | Annual Awards | Events

What began as a dream for Wendy Pfeil and her Chamber Team, became a reality! It was a memorable night in Downtown Belleville at The Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce 100th Anniversary Celebration. The weather was perfect and our guests were truly dressed for the occasion!

The celebration kicked off at Space’s for drinks and appetizers. As everyone mingled out into Main Street to find our seats, we were delighted by the gorgeous flower arrangements by Eckert Florist and Grimm and Gorly Florist and treated to music by the BTHS District 201 Band. Dinner by Papa Vito’s, Copperfire, Tavern on Main and desserts by Sweet Cakes and Sugar High, were served by the group of helpful students from BTHS District 201.

As dinner wrapped up, we were honored to hear from our inspiring guest speaker, Dr. Kelly Stewart. And then, on to the awards! Chelar Tool & Die and Mathis, Marifian and Richter, Ltd. were awarded Business Excellence awards. Rick Stubblefield (Director of the Intergovernmental Grants Department for St. Clair County) and Melissa Taylor (Assistant Superintendent of BTHS #201) were awarded individual awards.
