Preparations for the 77th annual Carmi Chamber of Commerce dinner to be held Monday, Oct. 4, 2021, are underway. The Carmi Chamber of Commerce is once again asking for nominations for Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year- awards that are one of the highlights of the annual dinner.
Since 1957, the Chamber has recognized a member of the community as Citizen of the Year for his/her good deeds and community spirit. The recipients have come from many walks of life, but they all have one thing in common – they have made Carmi a better place to live.
The Chamber will also be honoring a Chamber member business as Business of the Year. When making your nomination, keep in mind the activities and significant contributions these businesses have made to the City of Carmi. A list of Chamber member businesses may be found here.
Letters submitting nominations for Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year should be mailed to 225 E. Main Street, Carmi, IL 62821, be e-mailed to [email protected], or submitted here. Nominations must be received by August 23, 2021, to be considered. A list of previous winners can be viewed here.
