A break in between meal courses not only allowed people to become more hungry, but also allowed them to mingle and socialize with many area businesses and residents.

The Boonville Area Chamber of Commerce held its Spring Progressive Dinner last evening, which brought focus, not only to dinner, but to the businesses providing the meal.
The cuisine of choice was Mexican as the appetizers began at The Fred. As everyone lined up to start the evening, Robin Billings of KWRT thanked everyone who shoed up. KWRT was the host of the first part of the dinner. They served chips, an assortment of dip and some fruit.
A short trip to the Katy Depot yielded the salad for the evening as participants sat outside on picnic tables. Both Katie Gibson and Margo Heekin of the Boonville Tourism Office helped serve participants of the event. While individuals stayed for almost half an hour, it was time to eat the main course.
After arriving at Citizens Community Bank, people lined up to get their plate filled with more Mexican Cuisine. Gayla Smith of Citizens Community Bank and James Copeland of Midwest Autoworx also thanked everyone for coming. Copeland said while he was a transplant to the area almost 30 years ago, he calls Boonville home.
It was off for dessert at Aarons Sales and Leasing. Angela Inscore and staff assisted with the participants of the dinner. They were very thankful of the event as individuals left after enjoying an evening of traveling around Boonville for one dinner.
The sold-out dinner raised around $1,100 for the chamber. Fifty-six tickets were sold.
