Some 164 people—a new record—attended Friday night's 112th Annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce at the Pillars Event Center.
It's a night where the Chamber honored several people for their contribution to the community in the past 12 months.
In keeping with the night's theme of the Wizard of Oz, and the famous line from the movie "There's No Place Like Home", Taylorville native Matt Hart, owner of a leadership consulting firm called Lead with Hart" spoke to the Chamber gathering about how loving people is key to being a great leader.
Hart was a former part-time announcer for WTIM while in high school in 1993 and 94.
The Greater Taylorville Chamber Dinner program was broadcast live on Cruisin' 96-point-5.
