Which nominees will be honored at Awards Gala?
Twenty people, businesses and organizations have been nominated to be honored at the Chamber's Annual Awards Gala for their leadership or contributions to the community. They were nominated by Chamber members and other readers of the Chamber/Main Street newsletter, who were asked to give their ideas for worthy selections in an online survey. A Chamber committee will make the award selections for the January 16th event. Here are the nominees, and we took many of their pictures with their announcement/invitation and a gift from Alpine Chocolat Haus:
