TAZEWELL, Va. — An inaugural banquet will be one of the first events hosted by the newly formed Tazewell County Chamber of Commerce.

The banquet is set for 6 p.m. June 21 at the Four Seasons YMCA and will feature motivational speaker Laura Hunt Trull. The program will start with a reception and tour of the facility before dinner is served at 6:30.

Interim Chamber Director Pam Meade said the program will offer chamber members from across the county an opportunity to get acquainted.
