The Tonganoxie Chamber of Commerce installed new officers, recognized community volunteers and heard a presentation on commerce history during its meeting Thursday at the Methodist Church of Tonganoxie.
Officers installed at the meeting were David Petersen, president; Art Hancock, vice president; Connie Tornedon, secretary; and John Evans Jr., treasurer.
The chamber also elected Janet Angell to the board of directors.
Bill Latham was recognized as chamber member of the year, and Winnie and Bob Turner were named Tonganoxie citizens of the year.
The chamber honored the Turners because of their lifelong contributions to the community, said Petersen. "They've been very active in the library and all the community events through the years," he said.
Chamber members also heard from John Lenahan, who showed slides and shared the history of commerce and industry in Tonganoxie.
