EARLY CO., GA (WALB) -

Blakely/Early County Chamber of Commerce will have its 67th annual banquet Thursday night, celebrating what they said was a successful year. 

This year, leaders said they hosted a number of new events, and gained 20 new members.

They held a youth leadership program with high school students, and helped launch the new Early County Aviation Center.

It's a full-service airport that even offers a flight school. 

Chamber President Kyle Kornegay said he's so proud of the work everyone did. 

"It's been an eventful year, and it's been a year of change and growth. We are just really excited to see where the future is going to lead us. I know it's going to be something special," said Kornegay. 

He said they are already planning to bring back a 5K run, and golf tournament this upcoming year.
