Manchester Chamber Honors Community Members

The Manchester Area Chamber of Commerce honored several members of the community Wednesday night during their Annual Awards night.  Physical Therapy Solutions was named as this year’s “Business of the Year”. Owner Jason Putz says it’s a great honor for his whole staff.

The winner of the “Ernest Hayhow Chamber Person of the Year” is Darrel Rich from American National Insurance. Darrel says he enjoys being part of Manchester’s Static Christmas Parade each December.

The Chamber also honors one of its Ambassadors each year for the work they do welcoming new businesses to town. This year’ “Ambassador of the Year” award was presented to Sarah Maurer from GNB Bank.


And the Meritorious Service Award was given to KMCH’s Mike Johnson. Chamber Director Jessica Pape says the honor is given to a business or individual who has gone above and beyond in volunteering and serving the community.
