ELKHART — The Greater Elkhart Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Wednesday featuring Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is sold out, the chamber announced Tuesday morning, Oct. 1.

The governor’s first visit to Elkhart since his election proved to be a popular one with local businesspeople and community leaders, with more than 200 signing up to attend the luncheon from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Lerner Crystal Ballroom, according to Trevor Wendzonka, communications director for the chamber.

“Overwhelming demand caused the Chamber to stop taking reservations earlier this week, and no walk-ups will be accommodated,” Wendzonka said Tuesday morning in a written notification.

For those who signed up, Kyle Hannon, the chamber’s president, said, “In addition to Gov. Pence’ s remarks, you will hear a local economic update. This added presentation will show the governor our community pride and great business climate. On U.S. 31 and other issues, Gov. Pence has shown a great interest in Elkhart County and Northern Indiana . We’re working every day to continue building that relationship,” Hannon said Monday in a written message.
