Author and Forbes contributor Jeremy C. Park will be the keynote speak at the Denison Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual banquet Tuesday morning. The luncheon is the new format for the Chamber’s annual banquet and awards, now in its 106th year.


The banquet will take place at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at The Ark at Park Avenue Church of Christ.


“Jeremy’s approach to civic engagement and business is a natural fit for the exciting things happening in Denison right now,” Molly Harris, coordinator for the banquet, said in a press release.


Park has served as a producer and host for television, radio and internet podcast. In addition to his work, Park also serves as the president of cityCURRENT, a privately-funded philanthropic group that hosts 150 free public events each year and has given both physically and financially to nonprofits.


In addition to the guest speaker, the chamber will also present its business awards for the past year during Tuesday’s event.


Limited tickets will be available at the door. For more information regarding the event or tickets, please call the Denison Area Chamber of Commerce at (903) 465-1551.
