City of Centralia Business Appreciation Reception

June 10, 2021

The City of Centralia will host a Business Appreciation Reception on Thursday, June 17, 2021, at Castle Ridge Event Center. Centralia Mayor Bryan Kuder along with the City Council, and the Centralia Industrial Commission will offer this annual gathering to express appreciation to area businesses.

Local business leaders will not only have the opportunity to meet with elected officials and Industrial Commission members, but they will also be able to network with other business leaders. The Commission meets monthly with various industry and business leaders and is proactive in filling the needs of local businesses and industries.

“The City of Centralia and the Industrial Commission continue to work with and support the area businesses that are still overcoming the many obstacles created by the pandemic,” says Kuder. “We hope that the timing of this reception is a perfect opportunity for new and existing businesses to network. I am eager to meet with many of the area business representatives and recognize them for their many successes and achievements that they have had this year despite the pandemic,” says Kuder.

“Unfortunately, this event was not able to be held last year so the City is very excited to now be able to continue this important event for our area businesses. This is the tenth year the City has hosted this event and this year it is being sponsored by Peoples National Bank,” explains Langenfeld.

The reception will be held from 5:00 p.m. till 7:00 p.m. at the Castle Ridge Event Center located at 1750 Tee Lane, in Centralia.
