Let’s Get This Party Started!
The Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce is having a “party” and YOU are invited. The EACC Annual Meeting and Awards evening May 18th will take place at a new venue this year with a showcase of some of our member’s food and drink, desserts and event décor, as well as introducing the community to the Acadia Event Center in Trenton. The Event Center owned by John Linnehan at the former Christian School will be transformed into an elegant and fun space by this year’s Top Drawer Award winner Wallace Events.
Owners Brian Spencer and Jake Taylor want to help showcase not only their own business, but the caterers, and event space with an extra special look and feel to this year’s Annual Meeting.
“Every time I talk to Brian and Jake, they are even more excited about what you will see when you attend our Annual Meeting this year.” Stated Gretchen Wilson EACC Executive Director.
