Chamber cancels dinner

The Blair County Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Dinner will not take place this year.

It had originally been scheduled for June, and then rescheduled for October.

“It’s such a great event that we didn’t want to take the chance that it couldn’t be done to the high standard that it deserves,” Darin Tornatore, chairman of the chamber’s board of directors, said in a statement.

Mark Barnhart of NPC, who was to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award for Business Excellence at the dinner, now will receive the award at the 2021 dinner instead.
