Annual Community Awards Luncheon

Celebrating the Lander Business Community

Each winter, the Lander Chamber of Commerce hosts our Community Awards Luncheon. A celebration of the Lander business community and the individuals within it, the luncheon is an annual opportunity to come together in one place to recognize in a public way the efforts of the men and women who put so much time and effort into building their businesses, creating jobs for Fremont County’s residents, supporting the community, and in general making Lander a great place to live, work, and play.

The 2023 Community Awards Luncheon is set to take place Friday, March 3 at the Lander Community & Convention Center. Tickets are $30 per person, Chamber members receiving one ticket as a member benefit. Purchase your tickets here.
