GRANVILLE COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE’S 76th ANNUAL BANQUET
MONDAY, JANUARY 29, 2018; 6:30 PM
VANCE-GRANVILLE COMMUNITY COLLEGE’S CIVIC CENTER
Featured speaker: Adrian H. Wood, PhD.: “TALES of an EDUCATED DEBUTANTE”
In celebration of 76 years, the Granville County Chamber of Commerce’s Executive Committee and Board of Directors announces Adrian H. Wood, PhD., author of “Tales of an Educated Debutante” will be the featured speaker. “She is a rural Eastern North Carolina mother of four – one with extra-special needs – past preschool teacher, nanny, children’s ski instructor, early interventionist, college professor, early childhood researcher, wife and full-time mama. In writing after a twenty year hiatus, she offers personal glimpses where satire meets truth, faith meets irony, despair meets joy and this educated debutante escapes the laundry and finds true meaning in graceful transparency.”
The evening will once again include the presentation of the Chamber’s most prestigious award, the John Penn Citizen of the Year Award, recognizing outstanding community service.
A buffet dinner will be provided. Tickets are $40 each. Corporate tables of 8, with reserved seating, are available for $300.00. Corporate tables of 10, reserved seating, are available for $380.00.
