The Pike County Chamber of Commerce held its annual installation dinner and general membership meeting at the Best Western Inn at Hunt’s Landing in Matamoras on Jan. 28.

"The venue’s general manager and newly installed board director Ryan Saunders and his support staff provided for a wonderful evening and the food was fabulous," says the chamber in a press release. "The ceremony to induct new directors and install a new group of executive officers for 2020 was met with an enormous amount of positive energy and generous sponsors even brought their families which included some future chamber leaders to help celebrate and support the growing organization."

The evening's sponsors included Dime Bank, Wayne Memorial Hospital, Paul M. Brislin, E.A., ConnexiCore, Turano Insurance & Financial LLC, Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau, Wayne Bank, and Saint Therese Classical Academy.

Several members and sponsors gave talks, which included a history of all chambers of commerce.
