“This Annual Dinner will be such a unique and one-of-a-kind affair and really helps to set the Salem-Roanoke County Chamber apart,” said Lew Bishop, 2012 Chamber president and Campus Director of National College. “There’s a simple reason Party on the Moon is the nation’s favorite party band – they are the best! Everyone will be thrilled with their great performance.”
In addition to the main entertainment, Mr. Bishop will turn the Salem-Roanoke County Chamber gavel over to 2013 president Matthew Churchill, Business Banking Manager – Vice President for Wells Fargo.
