Princeton, W.Va.(WVVA)--Business leaders gather in Princeton to celebrate commerce, growth, and community.

The Princeton Mercer County Chamber of Commerce held its annual awards banquet at the Chuck Mathena Center.

2013 was another successful year of the chamber.  Every booth was filled at the Women's Expo and it welcomed two inaugural events, Halloween's Monster Mash, and the New Year's Eve Downtown Countdown. The chamber also hosts a golf and soccer tournament every year plus the Shrimp-feast, Autumnfest and the Christmas Parade.

"Volunteers, sponsors, if we didn't have those we wouldn't be able to do anything. They do a great job and we are very appreciative of them, "says Robert Farley, President and CEO of the Princeton Mercer County Chamber of Commerce.

Actor and Princeton native Kevin Sizemore served as keynote speaker.

"I loved growing up here. I remember playing cowboys and Indians up in the mountains. I wanted to come here tonight to urge everyone that we are in a rebuilding process in Princeton, especially in the downtown with the Renaissance Project, "says Kevin Sizemore.

Terry and Peggy Wells were chosen as Volunteers of the Year. Marie Blackwell received the Citizen of the Year Award. Grants Supermarkets was chosen as Business of the Year. And Lori McKinney and Greg Puckett were honored with the Eagle Award.
