The Vilas County Chamber will be hosting its annual dinner on Thursday, February 15th. The evening will include time for socializing, a tasty meal provided by Skyview Lodge and an exciting presentation from Robert (Bob) Jacquart regarding the future of Copper Peak and its impact on Vilas County.
Bob Jacquart is the Chief Executive Officer of Jacquart Fabric Products, based in Ironwood, Michigan.

“After hearing the deep-felt excitement and passion that Bob has for Copper Peak and the amazing things that are in the works, I believe that many businesses in Vilas County will see a direct impact with the success of the ski jump. Not only is this an exciting step forward for our area, but Bob is an engaging speaker that is sure to make the evening a delight” stated Celeste Hendrickson, president of the Vilas County Chamber and Executive Director of the Phelps Chamber.
