January 17, 2019

WAUPUN — The Waupun Area Chamber of Commerce will host the second annual Waupunies Awards Night on Feb. 7 at Bridges at the Rock, 700 County Park Road.

The event runs from 5:30 to 9 p.m., with cocktails at 5:30 p.m., with the dinner and ceremony starting at 6 p.m.

“The Waupunies serve as the Chamber’s annual business meeting, highlighting both Chamber changes and business achievements within the past year,” Chamber Executive Director Ellie Tenpas said. “In an attempt to give back to the members, and celebrate local businesses successes, the awards night was born last year, and we are excited to continue on this new tradition of recognizing achievements in the business community in Waupun.”

Ten awards will be presented to local businesses and community members for their respective efforts to improve — and contributions to — Waupun. They include:
