There were lots of hungry faces dodging the rain, hail and wind on Friday under a large tent as the Meeker Chamber of Commerce held its annual membership dinner and awards presentation. A dinner of pork shanks and fried chicken catered by Ma Famiglia help the members keep warm and the turnout was quite good.

Despite rain, hail and wind prior to the start of the annual Meeker Chamber of Commerce Membership Dinner on Friday night, there was a full house of attendees who still had to brave a sometimes-tough wind near the new town gazebo in downtown Meeker. The meal was catered by Ma Famiglia.
