Surprise at the Boyne Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting
Posted on Jan 20th, 2011
(From The Petoskey News-Review) Boyne City spontaneously raised $50,000 at the Chamber of Commerce annual meeting on Thursday to purchase a building for a new community youth center.
Boyne City business owners, city officials, and citizens gathered at Boyne Mountain on Thursday to discuss city commerce and celebrate business success at the annual Chamber of Commerce meeting, but they accomplished something they didn't plan. The chamber was passing out awards to honor individuals in the city who have accomplished great things over the year and a spontaneous fund raiser kicked off and the money started flowing in.
