Former Knight star serves as 'great ambassador'

Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 12:01 am

The Norwell football team and Ossian State Bank are pleased to announce the Norwell Football Banquet on Thursday at Lighted Gardens.

This year’s theme is “Tailgate with Chandler Harnish!” Dinner is being prepared by Jerry Springer of Lighted Gardens and will have a tailgating theme.

Harnish will be speaking about his first year as an NFL player with the Indianapolis Colts. Harnish will also speak on how he got to where he is today from Pee Wee football, high school, college at Northern Illinois and to the Indianapolis Colts.

After the banquet, everyone present will have the opportunity to have a photo taken with Harnish and get his autograph.

Kent Maggard, who is heading up this event for the Ossian State Bank, said in a release, “Chandler is a great ambassador not just for our area, but for the NFL as well. Part of our role as a local community bank is to not only be the best bank in the community, but to also be the best bank for the community. We are thrilled to be a part of an event that gives everyone the chance to hear Chandler speak, but also benefits the Norwell football program.”

There will be a silent auction of items that will be on display at Ossian State Bank until the evening of the banquet.

Tickets are $30. By buying a table (8 seats), you can reserve it up front. Tickets are on sale now at Ossian State Bank in Ossian or Bluffton.

Tickets will not be available for purchase the night of the event.
