Chamber Awards ‘First Dollar’ to Coffeehouse Café

Hot wings and cool rain drops were on the menu for members of the Elgin Chamber of Commerce/Community Club when they met Monday night at the Plantation House.

The regular August meeting, originally scheduled to be held at Elgin City Park, was moved to the backyard of the Plantation House which is under new ownership. Hosting the event was Plantation House owner Leonard Orlowski.

Persons attending, and there were quite a few, were treated to a covered dish dinner. Among the items prepared for the event were ‘Fire in the Hole’ chicken wings, brats, various vegetable platters, buffalo chicken dip, sauerkraut, chocolate dessert, cantelope and watermelon as well as other items to tempt the taste buds.

At the start of the festivities, a Chamber ‘First Dollar’ was awarded to Elgin’s newest business. Denise Getzfred and Sandy Couch of Coffeehouse Café, were present to accept the certificate. The business has been open for several weeks now, serving breakfast and lunch as well as smoothies and specialty coffees. The business is open at 6 a.m. and closes at 4 p.m.

An open house will be held later this month. More details will be in next week’s edition of The Elgin Review.
