There I was, minding my own business. Just doing my job.
My task for the evening last Thursday was to cover the Vandalia Chamber of Commerce annual banquet.
Several speakers took the stage. Outgoing president, Joanna Helm, talked about the accomplishments the chamber has made during the past year. Incoming president, Shaun Murray, outlined his goals for the coming year.
And emcee Kevin Childers took on all comers with a barrage of jabs and jokes to keep the mood light – and to keep people running for cover.
