The Commodore’s DInner on Saturday evening of Water Carnival week has been a long-standing tradition as a celebration of the week and a “Thank You” to the sponsors.  Citizens Bank is proud to be a large sponsor of the week’s festivities.  The event was held at the Crow River Golf Club this year.  After dinner, the guests were entertained with speeches from the Hutchinson Mayor, Steve Cook, the Chamber of Commerce President, Mary Hodson, the Jaycees President, Chad Czmowski, and the Water Carnival Commodore, Josh Gehlen.
