CHESTERTOWN Reservations are now being accepted for the North Warren Chamber of Commerce’s annual V.I.P. Banquet, set for May 7 at Jimbo’s Club at the Point, Rte. 8, Brant Lake.
The banquet is considered one of the social highlights of the year in northern Warren County. The event centers around bestowing honor on a citizen who’s made substantial contributions to the North Warren communities, as well as an enterprise that has helped boost the local economy or enriched regional social life.
To be awarded as V.I.P. of 2014 is Paul Matson of Garnet Signs in Johnsburg. Chosen as Business of the Year is Art in Chestertown Gallery, operated by the North Country Arts Center.
Reservations can be called in to Jimbo’s at 494-4460. The management suggests that the banquet fee of $29 per person be mailed or delivered to the club, as the credit-card terminal is not located near a phone.
Entree choice is to be submitted along with reservations. The selection is Seared Salmon with Lemon-Chive Butter Sauce; Herb Roasted Chicken, and NY Strip Steak with Demi-Glaze. Hors d’oeuvres and a gourmet field greens salad and dessert are included.
Reservations may be made by phone between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
