The Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce met for its annual banquet Tuesday evening — and surprised me with the “Media Support Award.” I was honored — and am now the proud owner of a Zeek Taylor chimp painting, which thrills me no end!
Also honored were:
Michelle McDonald, Hospitality Person of the Year.
Karen FitzPatrick of the Ariels, Artist of the Year.
Thomas Achord, Civil Service Award.
Zeek Taylor, Man of the Year.
Melodye Purdy, Woman of the Year.
Community First Bank, Business of the Year.
Rotary was recognized for its contributions to the community, and the late Dave Byrd was honored with the Eureka Springs Lifetime Spirit Award.
Amazing community! Great fun!
