ROCKTON, Ill. (WIFR) -- Over the past two years the Stateline Chamber of Commerce has grown by nearly 100 members. Thursday night, those local businesses were honored at the chamber’s 5th annual awards gala.
The ceremony recognizes the movers and shakers of the Rockton-Roscoe area. The Stateline Chamber gave out awards for new business, small and large business of the year, community service, pride of the stateline, chamber champion and the Cyndy Fogarty lifetime achievement award. Organizers say they want to recognize the work being done to strengthen the local economy.
“For me, it just warms my heart to be able to honor those people that are giving it their all every day and making a go at it with their local business. And that's what we do as a chamber, we help connect different businesses together to help everybody grow their business in the region,” said Board President John Broda.
