Richland Chamber slates third annual meeting, banquet

The third annual Richland Chamber Banquet and Annual Meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. March 21 at the Rayville Civic Center.

Congressman Ralph Abraham will once again serve as the keynote speaker, but chamber members will also hear from Senator Francis Thompson and Representative Bubba Chaney.

“We are so excited to host this fantastic event once again,” chamber president Scott Franklin said. “If you have attended in the past, you know this has become the hottest ticket in town.  On that note, tickets are in extremely short supply.  We cannot sell anymore tables, only individual tickets.  While we would love to host every person who wanted a ticket, there is just no possible way we can accommodate that many people.  We view this as a good problem to have.  Just picture the fact that a four-year-old Richland Parish organization nearly sells out of tickets before they even go on sale.”

Franklin said he does not recommend walk-ins, as it will be standing room only.  Tickets will be sold on a first come-first served basis. They are $30 each and a fried catfish dinner with Richland Parish sweet potato fries will be served. 

If you would like to purchase tickets, e-mail Franklin at or call 366-5092.
