The chamber will host its 86th Annual Banquet and Awards Ceremony at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4, at the Sacred Heart Gymnasium.

Nominations for the following categories will be accepted: Citizen of the Year, Youth Citizen of the Year, Community Project of the Year, Educator of the Year, Business Site of the Year and Education Project of the Year. Those making nominations may call, come by the chamber or go to to fill out a nomination form. Award winners will be chosen by a group of judges that review nominations made by individuals and organizations. Judges consider each nominee based on a list of criteria for each award.  

The Earle Love Business Leader of the Year award winner will be announced at the banquet. It is the only award chosen by previous winners that have been honored by receiving the award.
