The 2019 Nyssa Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture annual Honors Banquet and Auction was a wonderful event for Nyssa. 

Beautifully decorated tables (thank you table sponsors), a delicious dinner (hats off to the cooks), and wonderful auction items (thank you donors) all combined for a great evening topped off with honoring those who give so much to our community. Awesome job, chamber board and helpers! 

Now, it’s on to Thunderegg Days.
