LAMAR, MO.--- Barton County's 20th Annual Awards Banquet will be celebrated during a masquerade ball. The event will take place on April 18th from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Lamar Memorial Hall. The special occasion allows the Barton County Chamber to recognize community leaders and businesses of the year.
Right now, the chamber is collecting promotional items from businesses for swag bags. All the attendees at the event get one bag as a party favor. The chamber's executive director tells us it's a great way for companies to sale their store name.
"So everyone that attends walks out with business cards and different things that they might use with your business name on it to help promote all our businesses," said Astra Ferris, Barton County Chamber Executive Director.
Tickets for the event can be purchased at the Barton County Chamber. They are $25 per ticket or $175 per table.
