The 2012 Chamber of Commerce Business EXPO, held over the past weekend, was filled with 107 booths manned by several hundred local business men and women. Over 4,000 people attended the EXPO.

Entertainment through the weekend was sponsored by Star Excavating, Bippus, and began on Saturday with a performance by Miss Huntington, Mindi Hoffman followed by The Classics. Four grade school choirs representing Northwest, Roanoke, Lincoln and Flint Springs Elementaries performed on Sunday afternoon.

Drawings were held for three grand prizes, 73 other individual prizes and in exhibitor booths. In the Chamber drawings, Donna Lahr, Huntington, won two airlines tickets from Allegiant Air to anywhere Allegiant Air flies. Matt Stevens, Bluffton, was the winner of the 40-inch large screen TV and Blu-Ray DVD player purchased by the Edward Jones offices of Huntington. Parkview Huntington Hospital provided the Chamber with a one year membership to their fitness facility, which was won by Matthew Witt of Huntington. Congratulations to all the winners and the Chamber offers our most sincere appreciation to all the local businesses that gave door prizes, had booths or participated in any way in this year’s Business EXPO.
