Preparations for the 76th Annual Carmi Chamber of Commerce dinner to be held on Monday, Oct. 5, 2020, are underway. While this year’s event will be slightly different- more details to come later- the Chamber is asking for nominations for Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year. 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. When making your nomination, keep in mind the activities and significant contributions this business has made to the City of Carmi. Letters submitting nominations for Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year should be mailed to 225 E. Main Street, Carmi, IL 62821 or may be e-mailed to [email protected]. Please include in the nomination letter why you feel each candidate is deserving. Nominations must be received by August 31, 2020, to be considered.
