On Tuesday, March 12th, we held our Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting! Over 130 business owners and community members came out for a night of celebration, networking, and recognition. A huge THANK YOU to all who came out! This event is always our favorite, as we get to see so many people who are responsible for making Lakeview East as wonderful as it is. Like always, we had an award ceremony, spotlighting some of our businesses that deserve recognition. We also for the first time EVER, held a People’s Choice Award where we asked the public to vote on who they think is the Best Bartender, Best Server, Best Chef, and Best Stylist!
