BECKLEY - A local civic agency has holiday cheer tonight by saying thank you to their many members. The Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce held their annual Christmas party tonight. Hundreds enjoyed the celebration at the Raleigh County Convention Center. Guests were treated with good food, music, and fellowship.
The yearly gathering was one of the premier networking events in the New River Gorge region. Ellen Taylor of BRCCC recognized the agency's many accomplishments from the past year and is looking forward to 2014.
"You know we need to look at our work force issues, and hopefully legislation pass and we'll do good things for the business community, which on turn employs people. Those are two of the key issues we want to look at," said Ellen Taylor, BRCCC.
Collections were taken to help the United Way of southern West Virginia along with other local food pantries.
