DETROIT LAKES, MN--The Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet and awards presentation was held Thursday night at the Holmes Theatre in Detroit Lakes. The rising star award went to Natalie Bly from Midwest Minnesota Community Development Corporation (MMCDC).

Chamber President Carrie Johnston says this year the nominee committee wanted to give an award that isn't given every year to recognize a special partner with the Community Builder Award. That was given to Becker County Transit. Rusty Haskens accepted the award for Becker County Transit.

Outgoing Chamber Chairman, Dale Westley, presented the Chamber's Chairman's awards to Lee Kensinger from Dairy Queen as the 2017 individual recipient; and the 2017 Chairman's Business Award went to Fair Hill Resort, which has been run by the Kaldahl family for four generations. Emily Schupp Meyers accepted the award.

Westley handed the gavel to Marjorie Berg from West Kjos Funeral Home who will be the the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce Chair for 2017-2018.
