Chamber goes game show at banquet

In what could have been an ordinary annual meeting and banquet, Halifax County Chamber of Commerce had members — and their smartphones — in overdrive Tuesday night.


The organization hosted its annual affair Tuesday with a social twist. Instead of a keynote speaker, the room full of members and guests got to know each other through a game show style trivia contest that matched knowledge of local companies with the fast paced world of Facebook.

A social hour preceded the dinner with a room full of business owners mingling.

The chamber's highest awards ended the night with Huber being honored as business of the year. South Boston Interim Mayor Ed Owens earned the person of the year honors.
