On Oct. 17 the Baker Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture put on the annual Moonlight Madness event, held in downtown Baker.
Local Chamber retailers kept their doors open late while Chamber members served a dinner at Thee Garage and Steakhouse Showroom. The supper began at 4:30 p.m. and ran until 7 p.m. Chamber members served roughly 160 people a dinner of roast beef, hotdogs, baked beans, coleslaw, and ice cream as they took a break from shopping.
In previous years, the Chamber members serve approximately 200-250 people. This year they weren’t nearly as busy. Several chamber members voiced that they thought this was due to families traveling out of town for the long weekend since students were out of school due to a teacher’s convention.
