The Kearrney Area Chamber of Commerce rang in the holiday spirit by celebrating a milestone.
Roughly 300 chamber members celebrated the organization's 100th year of service at the annual holiday party. Current president and CEO Derek Rusher says the Chamber's roots and interests back then mirror those of today, including transportation, agriculture, education and business.
"It's definitely a milestone, something to celebrate for corporate business," said Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Derek Rusher. "Any time you come to 100 years or older, definitely something to celebrate. Its obviously neat to kinda see the passing of time and go through that history abut at the same time the real question is what's next."
The event included a photo slideshow of past presidents through the years, as well as businesses and projects along the way.
