The Richfield Area Chamber of Commerce held its annual awards banquet in the Sorenson Administration Building at Snow College Richfield, Nov. 13. 

Lorraine Gregerson, former executive director of the chamber, and Matt Creamer, former Richfield City manager, were both recognized and presented with distinguished service awards at the banquet. In addition, Kasey Lee, office manager at Ogden Chiropractic, received the Customer Service Super Star of the Year award and Gary’s Shoes received the Business of the Year award. 

Lee has been with Ogden Chiropractic for approximately four years. Prior to her current position, she worked in the Annabella town office for three years and at Maurice’s for seven years. 

“We are so fortunate to have Kasey in our office,” said Jon Ogden, owner. “Her work ethic cannot be matched. She is very good to work with patients to schedule them as soon as possible and simply put – she keeps our office running. From insurance, billing, product sales and too many other things to list. Kasey is the best.”
