Chamber hears speaker, awards member honors

   Bruce King spoke at the Woodinville Chamber of Commerce luncheon Mar. 11, talking about the PGA Championships coming to Sahalee Golf Course on the Sammamish Plateau and the economic impact of the event.
   It is estimated $60 million will be spent in the Seattle area by tournament-goers watching the 150 golfers Aug. 10-16, 1998, King said. He called for volunteers, saying 2000 will be needed, and noting that volunteering will be the best way to see the tournament. For $155 and their time during the week, volunteers will get a uniform, free parking, the PGA's journal, access to the Wannamaker Club, and "a superb view of the golfing." Call 836-1998 for more information.
   Also at the luncheon, several local businesses were honored with awards. Pro-Temps was named 1996 Business of the Year and Madison House was named New Business of the Year. Deborah Peterson of Mary Kay Cosmetics, Gavin Dickinson of Visual Impressions, and Tom Berg of Berg Landscaping were named 1996 Volunteers of the Year. Nancy Novak took home the honor of Ambassador of the Month. New members included Ceiling Pro Puget Sound, Woodinville Health Center, SirPlus, and Brent Ward State Farm.
   The next Chamber of Commerce luncheon will be April 8 at Chateau Ste. Michelle.
