Chamber Banquet: Tuesday of this week the Liberty Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce held their 44th annual awards banquet to recognize incoming and outgoing board members, and honor the two special individuals honored as Citizen of the year for both Liberty and Dayton. The Citizen of the Year award is given to persons in the Liberty-Dayton area who unselfishly volunteer their time with a life time of service and kindness to others.
