Annual Banquet

Bridging the Gap

The 2021 Annual Banquet will be on Tuesday, January 19th from 6pm-8pm in the Simmons Great Hall, located on the John Brown University campus. This event is an awesome opportunity to award some of Siloam Springs’ greatest volunteers! The current board chair will pass the baton to the incoming board chair during this event and the Chamber of Commerce will award the pioneer citizens, volunteer of the year, and businesses of the year of all sizes. Food will be catered by John Brown Univeristy.

The board chair Jimmy Allen has chosen the theme of the 2021 Annual Banquet to be “Bridging the Gap”. Jimmy shared his heart on how Siloam Springs as a community is best when people of all ages, cultures, religions, and political views work together, rather than apart. During the year of 2020 the Siloam Springs Chamber of Commerce wants to bring focus to the importance of unity in our community and how we are able to “Bridge the Gap.”

This year’s Pioneer Citizen award recipients have been chosen and will be awarded at the 2021 Annual Banquet on January 19th.
