Keokuk Affiliates Dinner

Feb 26, 2012

The latest winners of the Spirit of Keokuk award will be announced during the 22nd Annual Affiliates dinner.

The Affiliates organization includes the Keokuk Area Chamber of Commerce, Main Street Keokuk, the Keokuk Area Convention and Tourism Bureau and Keokuk Economic Development Corporation.

Chamber of Commerce Director Chuck Betts says more than 75 people have been honored over the last two decades for their contributions to Keokuk.

“The phrase that has been used ever since they started was without them, it would not have happened,” says Betts.

The nomination period has passed for the Spirit of Keokuk awards, but Betts says tickets for the dinner can still be purchased.

The Annual Dinner will be held from 5:30 P.M. – 8:30 P.M. on Wednesday, Feb. 29 at the Keokuk Country Club.

The featured speaker for the event will be Des Moines Register columnist Kyle Munson.  His topic will be “Crime-infested Slum Town.”

Ticket information is available by calling (319) 524-5055.
